Actor Vijay Deverakonda recently made headlines for wearing slippers worth Rs 199 at the trailer launch event of his upcoming film 'Liger' which also features Mike Tyson in the lead role.
Vijay Deverkonda was even praised for his simplicity. The actor opted for a casual look with slippers as he joined Ananya Panday, Ranveer Singh, and others at the event.
In the meanwhile, Vijay Deverkonda's stylist Harmann Kaur revealed why the 'Liger' actor wore slippers worth Rs 199 to the event.
Harmann said that several brands and designers were in touch with her for Vijay's costume. However, Vijay said he wanted to be closest to the character. Therefore, he asked for a very underdog look. He specifically asked the stylist for basic slippers.
Similarly, Vijay’s T-shirt was customised with words suggested by himself. She said that it was really brave of Vijay and that she was glad that his look received a lot of love.
During the trailer launch event, actor Ranveer Singh commented on Vijay's look and said, “Bhai ka style dekho, aise lag raha hai, ye mere trailer launch pe aaya hai ya main inke trailer launch pe aaya hu (Look at his style, it looks like, he has come to my trailer launch instead of me coming to his trailer launch).'”
Likewise, he was compared to actor John Abraham, who too has been spotted in slippers at several events.
