Vijay Deverkonda is one busy man. Even on his birthday, the actor is shooting for his next film which is tentatively titled VD11. However, on the special occasion, the actor made time to thank his fans and shared a video with a powerful message. In the clip, the actor is sitting on a chair. He says, “When you have to fight for your food from a very young age, you learn to hunt. I had to fight for every bit of respect, security and my place in the world. I have had to fight for every ticket sold. I have had to fight for each and every one of you, for your love, your belief, your support. I feel your love every day. I feel it today especially. And to all those of you fighting for yourself and your families, never stop the hunt.”
That’s not all. On the occasion, Vijay Deverakonda also dedicated a new song to his fans, from his upcoming film Liger. “Today I dedicate this song, Liger Hunt, to all of you,” he said at the end of the video.
In the caption, Vijay Deverakonda said, “My birthday morning thoughts – Between you and me. I love you all. Sending strength your way.”
While fans await the promised – and much-awaited – song, take a look at what Vijay Deverakonda’s Liger co-star had to say on the occasion. Sharing a photo on Insta Stories, Ananya Panday wrote, “Happy birthday, Vijay Deverakonda. Let us kill it this year. All my love, always.”
Samantha Ruth Prabhu, who will be starring with Vijay Deverakonda in VD11, has also shared a birthday wish for her co-star. Referring to his upcoming release, she said, “Happy birthday, Liger. You are deserving of all the love and appreciation that is going to be coming your way this year. Watching you work the way you do is incredibly inspiring. God bless.”
Liger, which is directed by Puri Jagannadh, is bilingual and will be Vijay Deverakonda’s debut film in Bollywood. The film also stars Mike Tyson, Ronit Roy and Ramya Krishna.
