Vijay Deverakonda Stirs Outrage on Twitter After Interview Clip of Him Choosing Dictatorship Over Democracy Goes Viral (Watch Video)

Arjun Reddy star Vijay Deverakonda is someone who believes in speaking out his thoughts. Even if his thoughts aren’t something the rest of the world may be agreeable to. Recently, a video clip of the Telugu star is going viral, where the actor shares his views on politics. Vijay, who had played an unconventional Chief Minister in the Tamil film NOTA, seems to have pretty radical opinions, that didn’t go down well with Twitterati. Vijay Deverakonda Planning to Take a Legal Action Against the Website Who Accused Him of Misusing Funds Raised by His Charitable Organisation.

The video clip that is going viral is part of a deleted scene of an interview he had given to Film Companion. In the clip, Vijay, sporting a new hairdo, is heard saying that he doesn’t believe that everyone should be allowed to vote. He then goes to elaborate his statement by saying, “I do not think all citizens of the country should be allowed to vote. For example, suppose you board a plane to Mumbai. The pilot is chosen by all its passengers. It has good agencies. Whichever company the aircraft belongs to, they choose the most suitable person to fly it.”

The reasoning he gives that votes are being sold on the promise of booze and money. At the same time, Vijay also adds, “My argument is not that only the rich should be allowed to vote. The educated middle class, which cannot be influenced by any force, should be allowed to vote. Many of those who vote for money and influence do not even know who they are voting for or why.”

He also says that he prefers dictatorship over democracy, but with the caveat that the control should be given to a person with the right morals.

Watch the video below:

To be fair to Vijay, he is entitled to his opinions, even if they are problematic in context, and credit has to be given to him for not being trying to be politically correct. Vijay Deverakonda Announces His Next Project With Director Sukumar, Says ‘We Guarantee You Memorable Cinema’.

Vijay’s ideas, however, work best for in a world we see in political cinema of the South, that is about black and white characters. Where it is in up in the air as to who gets to decide who should come in the middle class category? Or who should get to rule the country a la Nayak‘s Shivaji Rao Gaekwad?

Maybe, instead of taking away voting rights, it would be easier if we can make the electoral process cleaner. Also, can someone remind us of at least one country, without oil wells, that has developed under dictatorship?

Vijay Deverakonda’s comments creates stir on Twitter, as his views didn’t go well with fans with political leanings. Check out some of the reactions below:

Slowly Moving Towards RW Authoritarianism

Privileged Apolitical Friends

I Would Like to Hear Their Inner Thoughts!

Not Just His Choice of Movies Then

That Pilot Analogy!

Pointing Out the Flaws of VK’s Thinking

Interestingly, Deverakonda had another controversy through Film Companion, when on an actor’s panel, he clashed with Malayalam actress Parvathy on the toxicity of Arjun Reddy and its Hindi remake, Kabir Singh.

On work front, Vijay will be seen next in the bilingual Fighter, that will be made both in Telugu and Hindi. Ananya Panday will be the female lead in the film that is directed by Puri Jagannadh. Karan Johar is the producer of the film, along with Charmme Kaur.

Shraddha Kapoor As Naagin; Sridevi, Manisha Koirala, Mallika Sherawat – Seven Actresses Who Turned Into A Shape-Shifting Snake In Hindi Movies Before

Shraddha Kapoor As Naagin; Sridevi, Manisha Koirala, Mallika Sherawat - Seven Actresses Who Turned Into A Shape-Shifting Snake In Hindi Movies Before

Presently, Indian Television is plagued by all kinds of members from the animal kingdom and the most favoured one is icchadhari naagin or shape-shifting snakes. Naagin is one of the most popular shows on TV which has been bringing in seasons as nobody’s business. Now we hear Shraddha Kapoor too will play a naagin in a movie. She was already seen prepping to be a Chudail in Stree and now Naagin. Guess she has a thing for supernatural characters. But this isn’t the first time that snakes became protagonists in movies. We all have grown up watching Sridevi dance hypnotizingly well in the song Mein teri dushman from Nagina. Confirmed! Shraddha Kapoor To Play Naagin On The Big Screen; Lapachhapi Director Vishal Furia To Helm The Film

Again, she wasn’t the only one even when Sridevi is the one actress we remember the most when we say Naagins in movies. Today, we list the other actresses and a few male exceptions who played the role of a shape-shifting character.

Sridevi

Nagina saw Sridevi as Rajni who marries a human to avenge the death of her spouse. Her dance on Mei teri dushman is still etched in our memories. The film became such a big hit that it spun a sequel as well but the latter drowned.

Reena Roy

Bollywood is obsessed with Naagins taking revenge and Reena Roy’s Nagin was just an extension of the same. A group of men kills her spouse during a hunting party and she switches between various humans to exact her revenge. Roy did a fantastic job as a woman with a mission.

Rekha 

Rekha teamed up Jeetendra to become icchadhari snakes in this film. She does more than just that and the movie is not just another Naagin tale of revenge. What a relief!

Meenakshi Sheshadri

Again the mani is of utmost importance here for the evil ones to harness ultimate power. This has been a recurring theme in all Naagin movies apart from the woman taking revenge. Meenakshi gets caught in this mess as a serpent here.

Manisha Koirala

We all hate to love Jaani Dushman: Ek Anokhi Kahaani, the 2002 version. It was stuffed with a lot of big names from Akshay Kumar to Sonu Nigam but at the crux, it was all about revenge. Here, a male snake does the honours. Manisha in her previous birth was an incchadhari naagin who was cursed. We all like the movie for being so extra about everything that it’s painful.

Mallika Sherawat

Foreigners have looked at India as the land of elephants and snake charmers for decades. So they spun a movie around that. Hissss is Mallika’s one of the few Hollywood movies that people still talk about. It is an endless tale of looking for mate, mani and mating. Oh did we tell you, this movie has Irrfan Khan in it? Now we did.

Kalpana Iyer

Aamir Khan in his early career has done movies that make anyone cringe. One of them was Tum Mere Ho where he played a snake-charmer. The movie had Kalpana Iyer as the mother snake and how she influences the narrative. There is nothing good to write home about this movie or the actors in it. No offense!

Now coming to a few non-honourable male mentions in the list and you will be shocked to know Akshay Kumar is part of it. Yes, the actor played a shape-shifting snake in Hatya while Armaan Kohli did the same in Jaani Dushman.
