Vijay Deverakonda and Samantha announced Khushi early last year. A grand puja was held as part of the film’s launch and the makers began shooting for the film in April and even celebrated Samantha’s birthday on the film’s sets in Kashmir. After a short break, the makers started the second schedule and after that the shooting of the film was at a standstill for quite a long time. This happened when Samantha was diagnosed with myositis.
For more than eight months, the shooting was postponed as Samantha was able to participate in the shooting. Vijay Deverakonda, despite having other commitments, did not show any dismay at what was happening. He waited until Samantha was cured and then resumed shooting for the film. When asked about it, he said, “I can’t imagine anyone other than Samantha in this character. I was willing to wait as long as it took for her to heal. I would wait even if it took her 10 years to get the movie sets back.”
Adding to this, director Shiva Nirvana said that he wrote the character keeping Samantha in mind and that he is a big fan of hers. Samantha and Shiva Nirvana had earlier worked together for Majili which was another blockbuster hit.
As for his professional commitments, Vijay is currently busy shooting for his upcoming film under the direction of Parasuram. This director-actor duo previously collaborated on the successful film Geetha Govindam, which marked another triumph in Vijay’s career. Joining him in this new venture is Mrunal Thakur as the female lead. Apart from this, Vijay has another project in the pipeline which will be directed by Gowtam Tinnanuri.
Moving on to the film Kushi, directed by Shiva Nirvana and produced by Naveen Yerneni and Ravi Shankar Y under the banner of Mythri Movie Makers, it features notable performances by Murali Sharma, Sachin Khedekar, Vennela Kishore and Rahul Ramakrishna.
