The Arjun Reddy actor not only refused to apologise, but also stated that Savitri would have felt happy with his remark
Vijay Deverakonda is an actor who doesn't spare any opportunity to speak his mind. He stoked a controversy by calling legendary actor Savitri a 'cool chic' on his Twitter page.
The 28-year-old actor, who plays an important role in Mahanati, a biopic on Savitri, shared a poster about her liking for vintage cars and made the cheeky remark much to the dismay of her fans, who found the word ‘chick’ offensive and demanded an apology from him.
In a series of tweets, the Arjun Reddy actor not only refused to apologise but also stated that the actor, who was once called a 'home-breaker and alcoholic' would have felt happy with his 'cool chick' remark.
