Vijay Deverakonda, the popular actor has been keeping a low profile after the massive failure of his pan-Indian release, Liger. The movie, which marked his debut in Bollywood, was simultaneously made in Telugu and Hindi languages and dubbed in Malayalam, Tamil, and Kannada. The Puri Jagannadh directorial opened up highly negative reviews, and ended up as a box office failure, to the shock of its makers. In the recently held SIIMA awards, Vijay Deverakonda finally opened up about the failure of Liger and revealed how he handled it.
The talented actor, who bagged an award at the event, got all emotional while speaking about the unexpected failure. “We all have good days, we all have not-so-good days, we all have sh**ty days. But irrespective of how we feel, we need to get up. Maybe I didn’t want to be here, taking this award. But I came here and as I speak to you, I promise that I will get the job done for all of you, and you will be entertained. And great cinema will be made. Thank you,” said Vijay Deverakonda, who received his SIIMA award from the Kannada superstar Shiv Rajkumar.
The talented actor is currently staying away from the limelight and is focussing on his upcoming Telugu project, Kushi. The movie, which is touted to be a romantic comedy, marks Vijay Deverakonda’s first onscreen collaboration with the celebrated actress Samantha Ruth Prabhu.
