South superstar Vijay Deverakonda is all set to take Bollywood by storm with the upcoming film ‘Liger’ where he plays an MMA fighter with speech impairment. At the trailer launch event of the film in Mumbai, Vijay left everyone shocked with his casual outfit. He wore a simple t-shirt and trousers with chappals worth just Rs 199. In fact, Ranveer Singh, who was the special guest at the event, was left stunned looking at Vijay’s chappals. The Arjun Reddy actor has been promoting the film wearing chappals to stay true to his character.
Now, in a recent interview, Deverakonda’s stylish has revealed the reason why the actor ditched branded footwear and opted for simple chappals. DNA quoted his hairstylist as saying, “Liger promotions have been something I was really really looking forward to. There were so many brands and designers constantly following up to construct/design looks for Vijay. I was all prepped to make it really top-notch chill until Vijay called me one day and said let's be closest to the character and keep a very underdog look.” ALSO READ: Ranveer Singh Pokes Fun At Vijay Devarakonda As He Promotes Liger In Slippers; Says ‘Bhai Ka Style Dekho’-READ BELOW
