Vijay Deverakonda claps back at trolls, says ‘Before aunties & uncles used to troll and now social media’
Vijay Deverakonda is all over the news as his much talked, anticipated and awaited film Liger is just a few days away from its release. The actor is rigorously promoting the film with his co-star Ananya Panday in various cities and grabbing eyeballs for all the right reasons. As a part of promotions, he recently interacted with the press in Hyderabad and caught audiences’ attention with his quirky answers.
Vijay Deverakonda gave a savage response when a reporter asked him about social media trolls. In his style and aura, he replied, “it’s common, it’s an everyday thing. Even before I became an actor, aunties, and uncles used to troll about results, college, job, etc and now it’s social media trolling. Be it anything, trolling is always there.”

The actor also reacted to rumours of Liger being a remake or comparsion to director Puri Jagannadh’s film Amma Nanna O Tamila Ammayi. He added, “It’s nothing to Amma Nanna O Tamila Ammayi and it’s not related to it too. In Liger, we are doing MMA, which is very much from boxing and the entire drama. The son and mother bond and the sentiment is very important in Liger and other than that there is no similarity with Amma Nanna O Tamila Ammayi. I’m a fan of that movie and I really liked it, it’s my favourite. Also, I’m not somebody who will do remakes, so Liger is not related to Amma Nanna O Tamila Ammayi. When you watch the movie you will understand.”
