PU hosted the most talked about actors currently, the Tollywood heartthrob and the ‘Arjun Reddy’ actor, Vijay Deverakonda and one of the most promising talents from the current lot, Ananya Pandey. The stars visited to promote their next release ‘Liger’ which marks the grand Bollywood debut of this South superstar. This much anticipated film is expected to be a blockbuster and shatter all the records of this year at the box office.
They visited PU campus on 8th August late in the evening. The ground of the university was filled with as many as 5,000 spectators. The university boasts students from all the states of India along with a very prominent community of students from South India. Vijay Deverakonda was repeatedly seen switching between Telugu, Gujarati and Hindi! Everyone present at the event was naturally ecstatic to meet the millennial movie stars as long queues were spotted much before their arrival. The stars were given a grand South-Indian style welcome at the university with the garland of flowers and the hooting of the enthusiastic students in the background.
A special dance performance was prepared by the university students on the famous song from the movie ‘Akadi Pakadi.’
The stars interacted with the enthusiastic students wholeheartedly and they were touched with their gestures of bringing posters, hand painted portraits, and more. A female student from PU also went on to sing for Vijay in Tamil language. Another Spanish exchange student of this university interacted with Ananya Pandey in Hindi as he had prepared a special dialogue for her. The pictures of this happening event have become very much viral all over social media.
