Watch Video: Vijay Deverakonda Meets Theater Owner Manoj Desai And Apologizes

Vijay Deverakonda Manoj Desaivia

Vijay Deverakonda made his Bollywood debut with Liger. However, the film has received negative reviews. Liger will surely be one of the biggest disasters of this year. Vijay Deverakonda and other actors’ fees in Liger are also massive. Vijay Deverakonda expected it to be one of the biggest blockbusters. People trended Boycott Liger when Vijay Deverakonda gave a statement that did not go down well with them. Vijay said,

“I feel that there is no room for fear when I had nothing, I didn’t fear, and now after having achieved something, I don’t think there needs to be any fear even now. Maa ka aashirwaad hai, Llogon ka pyaar hai, Bhagwaan ka haath hai, andar aag hai, kaun rokenge dekh lenge (We have mother’s blessings, people’s love, God’s support, a fire inside us, we will see who will stop us)!”

His statement ‘Kaun rokenge dekh lenge’ receives backlash from the people. Even Manoj Desai, the owner of Gaiety Galaxy and Maratha Mandir Cinema, schooled him for his arrogance. The video of Manoj Desai lashing out at Vijay Deverakonda became viral.

After the video went viral, Vijay Deverakonda decided to meet Manoj Desai. Vijay flew down to Mumbai to meet veteran theater owner Manoj Desai. Vijay apologized to Manoj Desai and even touched his feet. Later, Manoj Desai said he misunderstood his comment. Manoj Desai said,

“Yes, he had come to make certain clarifications about his quotes on the ‘Liger boycott trend.’ Vijay’s statement, ‘Meri film dekhna hai toh dekho,’ has been twisted, edited, and published.

“What Vijay meant was, 1000 people are working on a film, which also includes spot boys and technicians; making a film is a team effort. We don’t need to take away their bread and butter. In the end, he adds, even if nobody wishes to watch my film, it’s fine.”

Manoj Desai has no harsh feelings toward Vijay Deverakonda as he clarified his misunderstanding and apologized to him on his father’s suggestion. He added,

“Since Vijay has clarified about working for the big screen, the issue has been resolved from our end. He has agreed to work for the cinema only and not for OTT. His father told him to clarify with me. His father said, ‘Manoj Desai has been an exhibitor for almost 50 years. Go and clarify with Manoj uncle’.”

That was a nice gesture from Vijay Deverakonda. However, Liger failed because of its poor story, direction, and acting. Overall, Liger is unbearable to watch. Have you watched the film Liger? How did you find it? Let us know in the comments below.
