He even directed the Hindi film "Bbudadh Hoga Tera Baap" featuring Amitabh Bachchan. His last release was Telugu action thriller "ISmart Shankar", which went on to be a box-office hit.

Deverakonda will play a character with stutter. Over the last few weeks, he underwent training in mixed martial arts in Thailand for this project. He's expected to sport six-pack abs for this project, which is eyeing summer 2020 release.
