The teaser of Vijay Devarakonda's upcoming film 'World Famous Lover' released recently. Vijay's different looks and his intense romance with four heroines are attracting the youth. There has been a lot of speculation about the film's story. Some say that this film shows the four phases in the life of hero while some say that there is an unexpected twist. There are a few who say that the teaser shares a striking resemblance to 'Arjun Reddy'.

Another interesting thing that caught people's attention is Vijay's name being written differently. His name is written as 'Devarakonda Vijay Sai' in the teaser and talk in the industry is that he changed his screen title because of numerology. As Vijay's last film performed poorly at the box-office, people started to say that he decided to change his name as per the suggestion of numerologists. But this is not true.

His name was written as 'Devarakonda Vijay Sai' in 'Arjun Reddy'. This was the decision taken by Sandeep Reddy Vanga. Coming to 'World Famous Lover', as director Kranti Madhav is a devotee of Sai Baba, he insisted Vijay on keeping his name was 'Devarakonda Vijay Sai' in the film. Sources close to Vijay say that he does not believe in numerology and he has nothing to do with this chance in screen name. This is the reason behind this name change and not numerology.
