Vijay Deverakonda went almost nude in a poster for his pan-India film Liger. The actor was questioned and trolled for his shoot and seems quite unconcerned about the controversy it can lead to. There were concerns from the Liger team, including producer Karan Johar, but Deverakonda was determined to go ahead with the poster that shows him nude and holding just a bouquet of roses.
In a recent interview with a publication, the actor opened about his feelings regarding the controversy. He said, “I don’t care, if there is hullabaloo or there is no hullabaloo. I don’t mind either.”
A few days back Ranveer Singh was also trolled for posing nude for Paper magazine’s cover. The photoshoot was more like paying homage to Burt Reynolds’ iconic 1972 shoot for Cosmopolitan magazine. While some complimented the actor for the shoot, many weren’t happy with the same, which landed the actor into controversy.
