Actor Vijay Deverakonda has always been a victim of many controversies and gossip. Even when he is chilling at home, and doing his part to the needful by sending some provisions and vegetables, the actor has made headlines for wrong reasons.

Annoyed with the headlines and how a few sites have written gossip on him, the actor recorded a video from home amid lockdown and he looks super angry.


In this video, which lasts for 21 minutes, Vijay has taken printouts of those articles and has read it out, and gives a detailed explanation on how far the news is true. Also, he has said that such low-standard websites which run only because of actors, and the industry, should not forget the basic rules and ethics of journalism. Also, he has said that they have been trying to end his career, destroy his image, and write nonsense about him. He wants to #killfakenews and #gossipwebsites.

He took to Twitter to share the same and many biggies from Tollywood have come in support of Vijay. Actor Mahesh Babu wrote, "I stand by you brother @TheDeverakonda." (sic)
