And, if you are wondering what made Vijay make such a humble choice, here’s the answer. Harmann Kaur, the stylist for the South Asian movie star, spilled the beans about the same. She claimed that Vijay Deverakonda chose to wear chappals because he wanted to maintain a look that was as similar to the character he is portraying in the movie.
Talking about Vijay’s look, Harmann said that many brands and designers were constantly in touch with her for dressing Vijay. “I was all prepped to make it really top-notch chill until Vijay called me one day and said let’s be closest to the character and keep a very underdog look. He specifically asked me for the basic chappals and initially, I was a little hesitant but I also always trust Vijay’s dressing up ideas because I know he ends up making it the talk of the country,” she told Pinkvilla.
“I was constantly nervous as the event was on a big scale, especially in Mumbai, and walking in wearing chappals worth ₹199 was really brave of Vijay but I’m glad it was received with a lot of love,” Harmann added.
