Vijay Deverakonda on ‘Liger-Rs 200 crore’ claim: ‘I deserve the insult’

Vijay Deverakonda said that he deserves all the insults for the tall claims he made before the release of ‘Liger’. Prior to the release of the film, he said that ‘Liger’ would do more than Rs 200 crore in theatres. Sadly, it bombed at the box office after receiving negative reviews. At the pre-release event of ‘The Family Star’, he once again said that his film would rake in Rs 200 crore sooner or later. He further clarified that he is not saying this out of arrogance but out of confidence.

The pre-release event of ‘The Family Star’ took place in Hyderabad on April 2. Mrunal Thakur, Dil Raju and the rest of the team spoke about the film. Vijay Deverakonda spoke about his dream and addressed the viral ‘Liger will make more than Rs 200 crore’ remark.

He said, “During ‘Pelli Choopulu’ or ‘Yevade Subramanyam’ time, I was asked what kind of gossip I want to hear. I said that I’d like to see a gossip about my film earning Rs 100 crore. Back then, it was my dream. My fourth film, ‘Geetha Govindam’ earned Rs 100 crore. I received a lot of love after the success. Since then, I’ve been trying to entertain you all with the same level of committment and passion. But, none of my films were able to beat ‘Geetha Govindam’.”

Vijay continued saying, “I made a statement that my film [Liger] will rake in Rs 200 crore. Till today, many people told me not to make such statements, which makes me look arrogant. They advised me not to talk like that out of anger and love. But, making such claims is not wrong. What’s wrong is me claiming that my film will make Rs 200 crore, but failing to do so. I got a lot of brickbats for it. I deserve it. I will make Rs 200 crore some day. Till that day, I will continue to work. Even now, people might think I’m talking out of arrogance. But, it’s the confidence that I have on myself.”

The ‘Kushi’ actor added, “I go to work with the same confidence. If I can became a star, can’t you? If someone scores Rs 200 crore, can’t we? When I earn that much, won’t one of you do it too?”

Vijay Deverakonda also asked his fans to be confident and chase their dreams by putting their chins up.

Here’s the trailer of ‘The Family Star’:
