I may never sing again: Vijay Deverakonda

Vastavam web: Telugu cinema star Vijay Deverakonda finds himself in a controversy regarding the song What The F from his film Geetha Govindam. He decided to withdraw the song from YouTube as he feels there’s no need for the song to be played if it is offending anyone.Vijay Devarakonda said, “I don’t think we meant to hurt anyone’s sentiments. It was just meant to be a fun song, and not meant to make any statement. The song is not vital to the film. We could change the lyrics.

“When for Arjun Reddy, I was targeted for swearing and when people said the kisses were obscene, I fought back. But I thought the kisses and swearing were vital to Arjun Reddy. But now since a few women’s organisations and some religious factions have objected, I’d be glad to remove it.””As for the song, I didn’t think we were hurting any sentiments. If people haven’t digested it, we had no qualms taking it down. We will replace it with another song.

It is a bit convenient. But right now that’s how things are. And both my producers and I felt it is better not to hurt anyone’s sentiments right now. Sadly this was my first attempt at singing on screen, and undertaken because my production house and my director were insistent. He reasserted, “But as I said we’re only to glad to pull down the song if that I what would make the protesters happy.”
