Vijay shared his journey of following his passion and the roadblocks he experienced on the road to becoming the force to reckon with in the movies.

Being the son of a television director, life hasn't been easy for Vijay. From being called an outsider to making his debut against Yami Gautam and following it up by playing small roles in movies, his film career did not take off as expected.

However, it was a supporting role in a movie that won him critical acclaim and gave him his first big break. He recounted how he struggled to make his mark for four years after his debut, where he faced multiple disappointments and challenges.

At the end, it was his passion to make it big is what led to his first commercial hit in the industry. The powerhouse that he is, the actor also mentioned how, sometimes one does not need luck to be in their favour if they simply have the passion to make their mark.

Speaking at the event in Hyderabad, Vijay Deverakonda said, “I am humbled to have been given the opportunity to share those aspects of my story that no one really knew at the third edition of the Signature Masterclass this year. I have conquered many hurdles that were thrown at me in my journey and I am happy to have shared those experiences today. One must always remember that, no matter what the odds are, nothing but passion for it can take you past them, I hope to inspire those who attended to follow their passion irrespective of the barriers and challenges they face.” The event witnessed a high turnout who were inspired and entertained by the Kochi based Indie Band- When Chai met Toast.
