Vijay Devarakonda said that he is proud to help 7500 families which are mentioned as 7500 people by the website. “Who are you to question about my donation? This is hard-earned money and I would love to donate as per my wish and comfort. Your websites are living on our ads and on the film industry. After I rejected giving an interview couple of days ago, the negative wave of articles started” said Vijay Devarakonda for the articles published on the gossip portal.
He also shared the screenshots of the articles on the screen and he addressed each and every line from the article.
