Tricking aspiring actors under the guise of fraudulent auditions with top stars and casting calls, taking money from them and using their pictures for illegal practices is a tale as old as time. Lately, rumours are doing rounds about searching actors for Vijay Deverakonda’s next but the team stated those rumours as false and released a press statement regarding it. They released a press note which states that a few production companies have been misrepresenting, claiming to make a film with the World Famous Lover actor and conducting auditions.
The press note reads, “We, Team Deverakonda have noticed that few production company/ies have been fraudulently misrepresenting to be making a film with Vijay Deverakonda and have been conducting auditions and gain access to actors/actresses. Any project Vijay Deverakonda is associated with shall be formally announced by him and his producers. Official confirmation can also be verified on VDs official SM handles. While we take action against these perpetrators, We request all to be alert and double check any information in their personal best interests.” (sic)
