The journey of Vijay from a boy who scared to collect his mark sheets and now made his way to collect “Best Actor” awards on stages, from a boy who scares to travel in city buses to an actor who can transform into the roles on screen.
“This (acting) is what excites me and keeps me on my toes. As long as that happens, this what I will do” says Vijay Deverakonda to Forbes. But his success never made him arrogant and high but strives to remain grounded. “Keeping sane is a conscious thing” says Vijay to Forbes.
