Last week, Vijay Deverakonda's semi-nude poster was released all of a sudden. In no time, the poster amassed one million likes on Instagram.
The poster has been garnering a massive outpouring of love all over. Female fans, especially, have embraced the pose without reservations. They are in love with the 'Arjun Reddy' actor going bold for the sake of her character in 'Liger'. They are lauding Puri Jagannadh's directorial touch as well.
Their love is quite clear. Many girls have changed the names of their social media handles to Vijay's surname. 'Priya Deverakonda', 'Soniya Deverakonda', 'Prerana Deverakonda' and suchlike have been found on Instagram.
If this response is anything to go by, the semi-nude pose has staved off all negativity and unfounded criticism from some quarters.
Not only female fans but also star actresses such as Samantha Ruth Prabhu, Rashmika Mandanna, Anushka Shetty, Tamannaah Bhatia, among others, have also praised the pose.
