Vijay Deverakonda was elated that he decided to give away Rs 1 crore from his Kushi remuneration fees to 100 families in need. This heartwarming gesture from the globally loved pan-Indian South superstar has won the hearts of his fans on social media.
Vijay Deverakonda has made a smashing comeback to the genre that made him a star, romance. It has worked like a charm for him since his recently released Kushi, alongside Samantha Ruth Prabhu, has been doing wonders at the box office, redeeming him after the Liger debacle. The movie, released in multiple languages, including Hindi, has received rave and excellent reviews.
The actor was elated that he decided to give away Rs 1 crore from his Kushi remuneration to 100 families in need. Vijay has been attending many events celebrating the success of the film. He recently fulfilled his promise and gave away the cheques at an event. Dressed in a casual yellow t-shirt and blue denim, Vijay interacted with his emotional fans.
“We are here today as one family after crossing hurdles and obstacles. I am happy that I am able to make this happen today. Because these are my personal desires. I will be pleased if this 1 lakh can bring in some happiness, relieve some stress, be a support and give you strength. It is a small gesture, this small sharing. Please do not thank me. It is all yours. And finally, thank you so much for your love, cheers and smiles," he said.
It was after visiting theatres in Hyderabad that Vijay attended an event in Visakhapatnam, celebrating the success of Kushi. In a pleasantly surprising move for his fans during the ceremony, Vijay declared that he would give Rs 1 lakh each to 100 families, in addition to revealing his kushi (happiness) with them.
