Many are wondering whether Nikhil is enjoying Vijay Devarakonda's failure. It is known that Vijay Devarakonda's NOTA failed to live upto the expectations and turned out to be a dud at the box office. Thus Vijay faced the first flop after the sensations like Pelli Choopulu, Arjun Reddy and Geeta Govindam.
Even as critics slammed Vijay Devarakonda for his over confidence and Vijay himself promising to make a comeback and asking his critics to celebrate for the present, Nikhil entered the scene and came with the following controversial post “For ppl who think…The World Revolves around them .... nd throw unnecessary Attitude around..DUDE UR NOT THAT IMPORTANT... Every Actor only Competes with Himself.We r but a drop in the ocean called Movie Making Hype Less... Work More...” taking an indirect potshots at Vijay Devarakonda.
Fans turned furious and started trolling Nikhil with the following posts.
“He has already achieved what you are still trying for - genuine own fan base.”
“Entha jealous unte matram inthala baytapadipovala bro,unfollowed you Shame on you to instigate fan wars,”
In the meantime RX 100's sensation Karthikeya himself came in support of Vijay Devarakonda saying “That last line he is a fighter. Setting an example for all the newcomers to always aim high and believe in ourselves that we can achieve what 90%say is IMPOSSIBLE. Learning a lot from u @TheDeverakonda garu,”
