Actor Vijay Deverakonda is winning hearts with his recent gesture of auctioning his maiden Filmfare Award and donate the money towards the Chief Minister’s Relief Fund (CMRF). Vijay Devarakonda has been nominated alongside the likes of Chiranjeevi, Balakrishna, Venkatesh, Prabhas and NTR Jr in the Best Actor category in the 65th Filmfare Awards (South). It was a proud moment for the actor winning Tollywood Best Actor award in front of such biggies.
In a long post on Instagram, the actor wrote that he is giving away his award for a better reason. The actor said, “This award is a bonus. But I’d like it to give it away to the Chief Minister’s Relief Fund. If they accept it, I’ll go and hand it over to them. Rather than being on my shelf at home it will be more useful for the city I grew up in.”
He also tagged Minister of Information and Technology KT Rama Rao (KTR), and went on to say that how this award will help to raise fund for the needy people.
Ninna Rathri, idi ayyindi. Best Actor – Filmfare. But For me I won, when I got to do what I wanted. When I got to be an actor. Malli industry respect and dabbulu ichinapudu, gelichinattu anipinchindi. Mummy & Daddy ki sonthillu konnapudu gelichinattu anipinchindi, and once I got these crazy rowdies showering their love and all the respect, gelichinattu anipistundi. Ee award oka bonus. But I'd like to give it away to the Chief Minister's Relief Fund. If they accept it, repu velli ichesta. Naa intlo shelf meeda undatam Kante nenu puttina ee city ki it's more useful 🙂 Roju Twitter lo Chusta, entho mandi help adigithe, KTR anna CMRF nundi help chestaru. If my first award can be auctioned and money/awareness can be raised towards this, That'll be an epic 1st award. Like always Idi Ela workout avtado kuda naku inka teliyadu 😃 Kani anipinchindi, commit aipoya. Now this is step one into making it successful. Let's do this 🙂
In response to Vijay’s tweet, KTR replied, “Vijay, many congratulations on winning your first Filmfare…Delighted you want to support the Chief Minister’s relief fund. My compliments to your thoughtful gesture….Let me revert on how we can go about this. Congrats again.”
