WHAT! Vijay Deverakonda Approached To Play Dev in Brahmastra’s Sequel? Here’s What We Know- Reports
It has been over two months since Rabir Kapoor and Alia Bhatt starrer Brahmastra was released. Even though the movie has been garnering mixed reviews from the audience, especially after it was released on OTT platforms, the fans are eager to know more details about the second instalment of the film.

Ever since the release of the Ayan Mukerji directorial, fans have been speculating on names from the industry that would essay the roles of Amrita and Dev, Shiva’s parents. While Deepika Padukone’s name has been a constant in playing the role of Amrita, it is Dev’s character that has gotten the audience riled up. From Hrithik Roshan and Ranveer Singh to KGF Chapter 2 star Yash, the speculations have been endless.

The latest name to join the bandwagon is Vijay Deverakonda. If reports are to be believed, Karan Johar is keen on casting Vijay as Dev in the sci-fi fantasy film. It was reported that the filmmaker wanted to launch the Arjun Reddy star in Bollywood with a big hit, but since his debut movie Liger turned out to be a dud, he wants to ensure that the actor gets his well-deserved hit in Bollywood.
