NOTA has failed. The film on which expectations were high has bombed at the box-office. But Vijay Deverakonda is not upset. He says that he has learnt a lot from this film and has no regrets that he did this one.
Nevertheless he told his detractors that this is the only time that they will get to celebrate because he will rise once again and will come back strongly.
Here is what he said...
To everyone who goes to the cinema for me. And to all who hope others fail and celebrate it .
I will not make excuses, I take responsibility, I am proud of NOTA. It's a story I wanted to tell, a character explored and a performance delivered.
Tamil Nadu, the national media and all the audience who loved it here, your love has been received. All the disappointment and criticism is taken seriously, it will be studied, the miscalculation on my side corrected, decisions evaluated and work put in but the attitude will not change.
A success or failure isn't what makes or breaks a Rowdy. The day you stop, give in, give up, that's when you stop being one. And being Rowdy isn't about just winning, it's fighting for that win, it's an attitude that burns inside us, so be proud rowdies, keep fighting. Gelusthe Gelustamm Leda Nerchukuntamm.
For those who are celebrating this, ippude pandaga cheskondi
I will be back.
Rowdy for life!
