Telugu superstar Vijay Deverakonda is one of the most loved stars in the South film industry. He is known for his films like Mahanati, Geetha Govindam, Taxiwaala and Arjun Reddy. While his fans love him, he once faced a massive backlash for his comments on Keerthy Suresh and the late actress Savitri. Scroll down to know more.

For the unversed, the biopic was on legendary South Indian actress Savitri, titled “Mahanati” in Telugu and “Nadigaiyar Thilagam” in Tamil. The film was released in 2018 and featured Keerthy Suresh in the titular role. Director Nag Ashwin helmed the film.

Vijay Deverakonda, who played the role of an important character called Vijay Anthony in the film Mahanati, took to Twitter and shared a film poster that showed some trivia about Savitri’s penchant for vintage cars. In his cheeky style, the actor wrote, “What a cool chick. #Mahanati.”
