For him, the first hit as a hero is Pelli Choopulu and it gave similar, in fact, even more name to Ritu Verma as a beauty to look out for.
Vijay really bursted into fame with Arjun Reddy but many thought Ritu Verma will be at the top by now. But she gave more importance to Tamil and the actress lost her footing in Telugu.
Even in Tamil, her big star movie, Dhruva Natchitram with Chiyaan Vikram is still in the cans and none of her other films are releasing anytime soon too.
She is doing "Mouname Ishtam" after a gap in Telugu. That too in an extended cameo. Art Director Ashok Kumar, who worked for 150 films before, is directing the film.
The actress wishes the movie will be able to give her some traction again in TFI and it is releasing on 15th March.
