We want to empower our rural communities the same way as our cities and level the playing field for all of our children. We want volleyball to be more than just a sport — we want to transform it into something that can help and benefit everyone," said Deverakonda on his association.
On the work front, Vijay will be next seen in ‘#VD12’ helmed by filmmaker Gowtam Tinnanuri, who is best known for the highly acclaimed film Jersey.
