Vijay Deverakonda and Ananya Panday who are busy shooting for their upcoming film titled Fighter were spotted at the Versova Jetty on Tuesday. In a candid shot, the duo can be seen having a conversation as they get papped. However, Deverakonda can be seen seemingly getting close to the Pati, Patni Aur Woh actor, in a manner that has left several social media users with raised eyebrows.
In the picture, The Telugu heartthrob is seen wearing a grey tee and black beanie while Ananya sports a white T-shirt that she matched with white, ripped shorts. As soon as photos of the two hugging on-set made their way online, some fans spoke about how “uncomfortable” Ananya looked. Meanwhile, there were plenty of others who couldn’t get over their effortless chemistry. While several fans pointed out to their awkward moment while a few alleged that it was just a PR stunt.
The photos seemed to have prompted fans to dub the two as “Anakonda”, making way for some epic memes.
