Vijay Deverakonda is obsessed with chappals these days. It went to the extent that he wore those chappals even at Liger trailer launch. We now decode why this actor is so obsessed with chappals and where it all started.
Those who know Vijay, know that he gets involved with any and everything to do with the promotions, especially when it comes to fashion. For the uninitiated, Vijay owns a whole clothing brand – Rowdy – which has been designed specifically for his rowdies (he doesn’t like calling them fans). This brand focuses on middle class beings, is under budget and thus, Vijay keeps that factor in mind when stepping out himself.
One such idea struck him while he was discussing Liger promotions with his makers. According to Pinkvilla, Vijay went up to his stylist Harmann Kaur and asked him to go back to the basics. He demanded the now-famous chappals.
The grey chappals that Vijay wore to Liger trailer launch have now become the talking point. Ranveer Singh also took note of the chappals and played a big hand in making it famous. The best part is that Vijay’s overall look might have cost more than the chappals. The chappals amounted to Rs. 200 only.
Ever since, Vijay has focused on his chappals everywhere he promotes Liger. He has been seen making them the centre of attention in various digital videos/reels.
Liger will mark Vijay’s debut in Bollywood. The film stars Ananya Panday as the female lead.
Helmed by Puri Jagannadh, Liger is produced by Karan Johar. The film will see Vijay in the role of an MMA boxer and American fist-fighter Mike Tyson will play a cameo in this August 25 release.
