The young star of Tollywood, Vijay Deverakonda, who made a promising start with Arjun Reddy, followed by Geetha Govindam, is facing a rough patch as his last two films Dear Comrade and World Famous Lover failed to create any magic at the box office. The handsome hunk recently opened up on the disaster response of the highly anticipated World Famous Lover, which released during Valentine’s Day, where he told senior journalist Rajeev Masand that the film was very good on paper but it didn’t work out during the execution. “The film was amazing on paper. But we fuc*ed it up as far as the execution is concerned. I was excited when I had heard the story,” said Vijay.
