Tollywood sensation Vijay Deverakonda is walking in the footsteps of Mahesh and Pawan. How else would you explain Vijay's Kollywood debut with just a few films to his credit?

Geetha Govindam all of which were smash hits. He was hoping to continue his winning streak but NOTA was a shocker to the actor himself who had pinned huge hopes on the movie which became a disaster at the box office.But Deverakonda has moved on and even penned an open letter to his fans on Twitter. Have a look...
