Vijay Deverakonda's Brother To Mark His Debut

  • 09 Jul 2019

Vijay Deverakonda showed his emotional side at the pre-release event of his younger brother Anand Deverakonda's debut film, "Dorasani".

At the pre-release event of the film, the Arjun Reddy actor showered praised on his brother and shared a story about how Anand clung to him when they were studying at the Puttaparthi school.

Vijay said, "I didn't like it when Anand decided to come to India leaving his job in Deloitte in US. He had struggled a lot to go there and I had asked him what he'd do here. He said that he'd manage the Rowdy (Vijay Deverakonda's clothingline) business here. I was completely baffled when he told me that he wanted to act. Despite my warnings, he continued, so I told him not to expect any help from me." He also added that there was a reason behind not helping his brother. "I wanted him to know the struggle an actor had to go through from choosing a script to the theatrical release. Since I was also busy with "Dear Comrade", we never talked about his film "Dorasani" at all," he said.

Emotionally, Vijay spoke about how Anand's financials helped him to reach stardom. "During my struggling days in the industry, Anand used to take care of the family and would send in money every month so that I can act. If I am where I am today, it's because of Anand."

The Arjun Reddy actor revealed that he didn't promote "Dorasani" so that Anand will know the hard life of being an actor "I want him to be trolled and shaken up. As expected, there was a lot of criticism when the poster and trailer came out. But, he is now handling things confidently. I recently watched the film and I am proud of what they have achieved," said Vijay.

He also warned the team of Dorasani about the film industry. "It is a strange place. They (audience) will praise you, hate you... and they will also do everything. Just do your dharma and it will work," he concluded.
