In an interview with a leading English daily, Vijay Deverakonda shared some of his past memories. This T-Town charmer spent a majority of his schooling days in Puttaparthi. Vijay, then returned to Hyderabad and joined Badruka College of Commerce.
Vijay disclosed an interesting memory from his college life, in the interview. During the college days, Vijay said, he was not familiar with Telugu. This is because he used to converse in English throughout his school life. Vijay stated, “In Hyderabad, I told my friends that I speak Tulu and that I am from Mangaluru. This was just to avoid them mocking at me regarding my broken Telugu.”
Vijay’s this lie worked until he had finished his college life.
Coincidentally, Vijay had rendered some of Tulu dialogues in Arjun Reddy, since the movie was based in Mangaluru.
