It’s an honest love story: Anand Deverakonda

Vastavam web: Debutant actor Anand Deverakonda, who is making his debut with ‘Dorasani’, terms his film as an honest love story. ‘It’s a realistic love story and we tried to bring the soul of the story on screen,” he adds. He claims that they shot in real locations to justify the ‘period’ flick. “It’s a shade ahead of other love stories due to high emotional quotient,” he informs. He claims to have received offers after his brother Vijay Devarakonda delivered blockbuster ‘Arjun Reddy,’ but he didn’t take them seriously.

“A few offers came my way but I wasn’t sure then, until director Mahendra came to me to narrate this gripping story for 5-hours and floored me,” he adds.
He claims that he was selected for this role through audition and not by the name of his star brother. “Most of the people in the industry know that Vijay has a brother but very few have seen me. Hence, I went for the audition like another new face and got selected,” he informs. He is awaiting the response from the audience for his movie, “I care a damn about negative comments before release of the film but will take comments bit seriously post-release,” he informs.
