Actor Vijay Deverakonda is only a few days away from making his debut in the Hindi film industry with Puni Jagannadh-directorial ‘Liger’. The actor, along with his co-star Ananya Panday, has been touring the country for the promotions of the film which will be a pan-India release. Amidst one such promotions and media interaction, Vijay spoke about the ongoing topic of boycott calls for Aamir Khan-starrer ‘Laal Singh Chaddha’.

Vijay Deverakonda extended his support to the makers of ‘Laal Singh Chaddha’, saying that when people decided to boycott a film, the impact of it is not only faced by the actors but a lot more people. He said that a film’s boycott has a direct impact on the 2000 to 3000 families that are (in)directly associated with it.

While Vijay Deverakonda’s statement made all the sense, there seems to be a section of people on social media, who were left disappointed and angered. So much so that they are now calling for a boycott call on the actor’s upcoming release ‘Liger’.
