Banned Hero to Play NTR’s Villain
Controversial Kannada hero Duniya Vijay, who was recently banned by the Karnataka Film Chamber of Commerce, has reportedly been roped in to play one of the villains in NTR’s ‘Jai Lava Kusa’.
Duniya Vijay’s career has been marred with controversies. He was banned after two stuntmen died while shooting for his unreleased film ‘Mastigudi’ last year. The two stuntmen jumped from a helicopter into a reservoir and died as rescue teams failed to save them. The incident hit headlines all over media and Vijay was handed over a temporary ban.
When Kalyan Ram and director Bobby were looking for a new face to play the villain in NTR starrer, they came across Vijay’s profile and approached him. As his career came to a halt in Kannada film industry, Vijay reportedly agreed to play villain in ‘Jai Lava Kusa’ and thus make his debut in Tollywood.
