Vijay Deverakonda is a name that needs no introduction in the world of Indian cinema. The popular Telugu actor rose to fame with his outstanding performances in films like Arjun ReddyGeetha Govindam, and Dear Comrade. Besides his acting skills, Vijay Deverakonda is known for his outspoken nature and unique fashion sense. Recently, the actor made headlines for a rather unusual and controversial reason – a viral ‘trolling’ police complaint and photo from the COVID-19 Times. In a recent blog, Vijay Deverakonda sets the record straight and shares the truth behind the entire incident.


The Viral Police Complaint and Photo

It all began when a police complaint was registered against Vijay Deverakonda by a group of social media users for supposedly ‘trolling’ them. According to the complaint, the actor had posted a photo of himself posing in front of a wall with the words ‘I Support Hyderabad Police’ written on it. This did not go down well with a few netizens, and they filed a complaint against the actor for ‘trolling’ them.

The complaint soon went viral on social media, along with the photo in question, sparking a series of debates and speculations. While some supported the actor, many criticized him, calling it a publicity stunt. However, Vijay Deverakonda took to his blog to share the truth behind the entire incident, putting an end to all the rumors and controversies.


The Truth Revealed

In his blog, Vijay Deverakonda shared that the photo in question was taken during the early days of the COVID-19 pandemic when the world was facing a severe shortage of personal protective equipment (PPE) for healthcare workers. The actor, along with a few volunteers, had taken up the task of painting walls across Hyderabad to spread awareness about the importance of wearing masks and following safety protocols.

During one of these drives, Vijay Deverakonda came across a group of policemen who were working tirelessly to enforce the lockdown and ensure people’s safety. Impressed by their dedication, the actor decided to show his support by clicking a photo with them and the ‘I Support Hyderabad Police’ wall. Little did he know that this photo would land him in trouble later.


On being accused of ‘trolling’ the complainants, Vijay Deverakonda clarified that it was never his intention to hurt anyone’s sentiments. He also shared that the group of people who filed the complaint had misunderstood the context behind the photo and blew the whole incident out of proportion. The actor also apologized if his actions or words had caused any inconvenience to the complainants.

The Power of Social Media

Vijay Deverakonda’s blog not only sheds light on the truth behind the viral ‘trolling’ complaint but also highlights the power of social media in today’s digital era. One single photo can be shared and misinterpreted in many ways, causing unnecessary controversies and harming someone’s reputation. People need to understand the context before jumping to conclusions or making judgments based on a mere photo or tweet.

The actor also urged people to use social media wisely and responsibly, as it has the power to make or break someone’s career and personal life. Misusing this power or weaponizing it to settle personal vendettas only adds fuel to the fire and creates unnecessary chaos.

Vijay Deverakonda’s blog on the ‘trolling’ complaint and the viral photo is a perfect example of how a simple act of appreciation can be portrayed in a negative light on social media. It also sheds light on the importance of understanding the context before jumping to conclusions. The incident serves as a reminder for all of us to use social media responsibly and not let it be a breeding ground for controversies and misinformation. As for the actor, he continues to spread awareness, support social causes, and entertain audiences with his outstanding performances, leaving no room for unnecessary drama or controversies.
