Vijay Deverakonda on Yash
In a promotional interview with a Kannada news channel, Deverakonda said that he likes Yash very much. "We are not very much in touch now, but we used to meet a lot at one time. I like his journey," the Arjun Reddy star claimed.

Vijay Deverakonda stated that they used to share a lot of stories together. "I connected with his journey that he shared with me. I am so happy about what he did with KGF. It shook the country," he added.

"I am so proud of them (Yash, Prashanth Neel and Hombale Film) team from Kannada having one big dream. Maybe nobody believed them when they started. Dubbing the film in Indian languages and promoting it so well. Wherever you go people have watched the film," he continued.

It has to be noted that Yash had joined the promotional activity of Vijay Deverakonda and Rashmika Mandanna-starrer Dear Comrade in Bengaluru a few years ago.
