Upon seeing the trailer of the movie, many had compared Dear Comrade to Vijay Deverakonda's earlier blockbuster Arjun Reddy. However, the actor clarified that the two films bear no resemblance in an interview with indianexpress.com.

"If you watch the film, you will know that there is no connection between Dear Comrade and Arjun Reddy. Your confusion is due to the scenes where I sport a beard and act out in anger. But, Bobby’s (Vijay Deverakonda’s character in Dear Comrade) journey is completely a different one. His family, his struggles and his relationship – everything is completely different (from Arjun Reddy)," Deverakonda said.

On the work front, Vijay Deverakonda is currently filming the action-drama Hero.
