Lights, camera, auction! Vijay Deverakonda, the heartthrob of Tollywood, has never been one to shy away from making bold moves – both on and off the screen. And his latest revelation about auctioning one of his awards for a shocking amount is no exception! It all began when Vijay’s career skyrocketed with his breakthrough performance in Sandeep Reddy Vanga’s 2017 blockbuster, “Arjun Reddy.” The film not only earned him critical acclaim but also bagged him a prestigious Best Actor award at Filmfare. However, instead of letting the trophy gather dust on his shelf, Vijay decided to put it up for auction in 2018.

But why would anyone auction off such a coveted accolade, you ask? Well, according to Vijay himself, it was all for a noble cause. The actor revealed in an interview with Galatta Plus that he auctioned the award to raise funds for the CM Relief Fund, contributing a whopping ₹25 lakh in the process. Intriguingly, Vijay’s decision to part ways with his Filmfare trophy sheds light on his unique perspective towards awards. While many in the industry strive to amass accolades and trophies as a symbol of their success, Vijay values something far more precious – memories. For him, collecting memories and making a difference in the lives of others hold greater significance than any number of awards.

In a world where material possessions often take precedence, it’s heartwarming to see a celebrity like Vijay Deverakonda use his platform for the greater good.
