Arjun Reddy of the South Indian cinema, Vijay Deverakonda holds a massive fanbase pan-India, owing to his fine acting skills. His intense looks are to die for, and millions of girls out there dream to find a man like him. He is all set to make his big debut in Bollywood with the film, Liger and is often spotted by the paps. While most of the time, people go crazy over his shabby looks, this time, netizens brutally trolled him for his fashion sense and even called him ‘homeless.’
Talking about Vijay Deverakonda’s personal life, for a long time, he is rumoured to be dating actress, Rashmika Mandanna. They are one of the most-loved celebrity jodis on screen, and we have witnessed their chemistry in super-hit films like Geetha Govindam and Dear Comrade. Neither Vijay nor Rashmika have addressed the rumours about their dating. However, they have always called each other ‘thick friends’.
On January 4, 2022, Vijay Deverakonda was spotted in Hyderabad after a meeting. He was seen wearing a blue checkered shirt and beige jogger pants from the high-end brand, Gucci, and had kept his hair messy. He had completed his look with mustard-coloured sliders. As soon as his pictures were shared online, netizens started trolling him as his shabby look failed to impress the people of social media this time.
While one user commented, “Gucci label dikhana jaruri tha hame pata hai aap brand hi pehnte ho," another one wrote, “Ye hmesa bhikari jsa Ku lgta hai.” One more comment read “Y does he always look homeless." Another user commented, “Ek hi hair style kitne saal chaleyaga.”
On the night of December 30, 2021, Vijay Deverakonda and his alleged girlfriend, Rashmika Mandanna had hit the headlines as they were spotted outside a gym in Hyderabad. The alleged couple’s post-workout pictures had gone viral over the internet as they were seen in their gymwear. While Rashmika was seen covering her face from the paps, Vijay had walked casually wearing a mask.
While we always love seeing Rashmika Mandanna and Vijay Deverakonda together, a section of netizens were not impressed as they had called it overacting. While one user had written, “Over acting = RASHMIKA MANDANNA,” another one had commented, “Bhai band kro ye over acting @rashmika_mandanna.” Moreover, one user had also questioned their relationship status and had commented, “Are they dating?”
On June 29, 2021, Rashmika had hosted an ‘Ask Me Anything’ session with her fans on her IG handle, where she had answered a number of questions. During the interaction, one of her fans had asked her to post her favourite picture with Vijay. Obliging to her fan’s request, Rashmika had posted a throwback photo with Vijay, where the duo was seen greeting the crowd from the stage. Another fan had asked her, “How special is Vijay Deverakonda to you?" To this, she had shared a hugging Boomerang and had written, “besssssst fraaaannnnd” atop it.
Vijay Deverakonda’s film, Liger will release on August 25, 2022.
