Vijay Devarakonda has been creating a brand image for himself all over, as a Rowdy. And this image has made him an easily misunderstood person and the actor is not worried about his image. But when it comes to his films, he doesn’t want anything to go the way it isn’t intended. Recently, his song from Geetha Govindam, What the F, which he sang for the first time, created a controversy and the actor immediately withdrew the song.
Explaining the reasons to a famous news agency, he said, “I don’t think we meant to hurt anyone’s sentiments. It was just meant to be a fun song, and not meant to make any statement. The song is not vital to the film. We could change the lyrics. When for ‘Arjun Reddy’, I was targeted for swearing and when people said the kisses were obscene, I fought back. But I thought the kisses and swearing were vital to ‘Arjun Reddy’. But now since a few women’s organisations and some religious factions have objected, I’d be glad to remove it.
It’s a fun film meant to be watched by the entire family. After my adult film ‘Arjun Redy’, ‘Geetha Govindam’ is my full-on Disney-Barjatya wholesome entertainer. I just decided to do it for kicks. If I am a singer at all, this is the best I could do. I know I have a limited range. And unless I take singing lessons, I doubt I can do better than this. But as I said we’re only to glad to pull down the song if that would make the protesters happy,” concluded Vijay.
