It was a night to remember for birthday boy Vijay Deverakonda who turned 30 on May 9 with a boys’ night out .
“I brought in my birthday with my old friends from school and college. We played cricket all night . I can’t think of a better way to bring in my birthday,” says a happy Vijay whose next film Dear Comrade will release at the end of July.
Birthday was spent distributing icecream on the streets of Hyderabad.
Says the birthday boy, “Last year for my birthday my team and I distributed icecream on the streets. It made me so happy to see the smile on little faces that I have decided to make this an annual ritual.So yes, we were back on the streets of Hyderabad serving icrecream. But this time we extended it to seven cities in Andhra Pradesh. I couldn’t be present at all the cities. But it made me feel happy to know I was spreading some sunshine on a day that’s supposed to be special for me.”
In the meanwhile Vijay has already started shooting for his next film which stars Vijay with four leading ladies. Vijay now leaves for France to shoot for that untitled film.
So is the cricket practice a part of his training for his next film?
“No no,” avers Vijay. “I love cricket from the time I was a child. I play a lot of cricket these days. It reminds me of my growing up years.”
