Tollywood actor Vijay Deverakonda is on the rise these days with each passing day and every event that he attends. The ‘Arjun Reddy’ actor was in Bengaluru recently to launch the audio of ‘Chamak’ which stars Golden Star ‘Ganesh’ and Rashmika Mandanna in the lead roles. Vijay Deverakonda is one of those rare actors who doesn’t hesitate to speak his mind out, without any inhibitions. And he did the same at the audio launch of ‘Chamak’. “My first film as a hero ran for 100 days. As a very arrogant and a proud 100-day film guy, I was googling Golden Star Ganesh and his film ran for bloody 860 days. What the….? Like which film runs for 800 days,” Vijay Deverakonda was quoted as saying by The Indian Express.
Vijay Deverakonda also spoke about why Karnataka is so special for him. Speaking about it, Vijay said, “As a kid for me Karnataka means Javagal Srinath, Anil Kumble, Venkatesh Prasad. We all love Karnataka because 40 percent of Indian cricket team players were from Karnataka. We wouldn’t have Rahul Dravid and many fast bowlers without this state. That is our first love for Karnataka.”
Vijay also spoke about Baahubali actress Anushka Shetty and said, “In Telugu, our Anushka Shetty, who is a superstar, is from Karnataka. So you have given India so many actors, actresses and cricketers. And now you have given Rashmika Mandanna to the Telugu film industry.” Rashmika Mandanna will be seen playing his leading lady in upcoming film with director Parasuram.
