Apparently, the script of 'World Famous Lover' was first narrated to Sai Tej who turned it down. Later, Kranti Madhav went to Sharwanand who also rejected it. After failing to impress both these actors, Kranti Madhav reportedly went near Vijay Devarakonda who was impressed with the subject but suggested a few changes.
After those improvements, Vijay agreed to be a part of the film and that is how 'World Famous Lover' started. As we know, the teaser gave us the vibes of 'Arjun Reddy' and some people are accusing the 'Rowdy' hero of becoming monotonous. We need to wait till Feb 14th to know what made Sai Tej and Sharwanad reject this script.
