Recently, a video clip of ‘Arjun Reddy’ actor Vijay Deverakonda from one of his interviews went viral on social media. In the video, he was saying that he doesn’t entirely believe in democracy and also said that everyone shouldn’t be allowed to vote.
It was in an interview to Film Companion, Vijay said that dictatorship has its merits. “I won’t stand in an election where people would vote for alcohol and money… I’d like to be [a] dictator. I think that’s the way you can make change[s]. Like ‘just shut up, I’m having good intentions, you don’t know what is good for you maybe but stick to this and five, ten years down the line it’s going to pay off’. I think somewhere, dictatorship is the right way, but you need to have a good guy,” he said.
Deverakonda got criticised by a section of netizens for his statements and also Gulshan Devaiah took a jibe at him suggesting that Vijay needs to release some pressure from his head by getting a haircut.
He tweeted, “I suggest a haircut to release some pressure on the khopdi,” followed by an eye-rolling emoji.
