It all started with Great Andhra, a website portal ‘Great Andhra’ publishing an article on Vijay Devarakonda over ‘Middle Class Fund’ campaign through which he targeted to reach out 2,000 families to help them with basic essentials in this coronavirus crisis. Cracked over the negativity, Vijay released a video explaining the hardship behind the initiative which touched 7,500 families so far. He then claimed that the website is resorting to negative articles after he rejected an interview of late.

Vijay Devarakonda also challenged if the gossip portals could donate and help the people who are in need. He also stated that several actors like him are suffering for this negativity just for the sake of views and fame. Reacting to Vijay’s rant video, Great Andhra published an article that stated – “Flops and hits are a part of a star’s journey; He would most likely understand this when he beneficial properties extra expertise as an actor and matures as an individual.”
