When Vijay Deverakonda revealed how the character of Arjun Reddy ‘exhausted’ him

Sandeep Reddy Vanga’s Arjun Reddy turned out to be a game-changer in Vijay Deverakonda’s career. Apart from south, the actor garnered pan-India recognition due to its dubbed -Hindi version. While he received accolades and awards for his performance, he earlier revealed that it was exhausting experience for him while shooting for that character. In an interview with The News Minute in 2017, Vijay said, “It sapped me. Exhausted the hell out of me.
