Will Vijay Deverakonda's upcoming pan-India movie revive his box office image?

Vijay Deverakonda has been going through a rough patch in his career since the release of the 2022 movie Liger. All movies up until Family Star (2024) met with underwhelming response at the box office. It was believed that his recent family drama, co-starring Mrunal Thakur and bankrolled by Dil Rajju, was expected to revive his career, but the movie received negative reviews from critics, owing to weak comedy, plot and predictability. The film was a box office bomb grossing only ₹19.78 crore against a budget of ₹50 crore.

His previous release Kushi (2023) co-starring Samantha Ruth Prabhu was one of the highly anticipated movies of the year. However, it opened to mixed reviews from critics. The movie earned ₹16 crore on the first day and after a week (7 days) of its release, Kushi minted a worldwide gross of ₹71.95 crore. The film was reportedly declared a box-office bomb with a loss of over ₹12 crore.
