Manoj Desai who owns the famous Maratha Mandir and Gaiety Galaxy theatres in Mumbai city, said that the actor’s response was “arrogant”. The ace theatre owner said that his arrogant speech wouldn’t bring viewers to the theatre. “You have become arrogant, What you mean by “watch the movie if you wish or else don’t ?”.
Look at wat happened to Taapsee, Akshay and Aamir Khan. You can go work in OTT content if you want and forget theatrical films. Why are you being so smart and saying that audience will watch the film in OTT. No one will see it on OTT and your remarks are hurting advance bookings in our theatres” Desai said.
On 28th of August, Vijay Devarakonda met the theatre owner and clarified about his speech. “I didn’t intend to dismiss the audience” the actor reportedly said. Vijay who himself owns a theatre named Asian Vijay Devarakonda Cinemas in Mahbubnagar, reportedly said that he understands the elements that make up the movie business, and felt that it was important to clear the air.

“After seeing the entire video, I realized I had become too angry with my child (Vijay) because of OTT. I shouldn’t have done so. I am sorry for that” Manoj Desai said. Vijay Devarakonda touched Manoj Desai’s feet and asked for his blessings.
Desai also showered praise on Vijay Devarakonda after meeting him in person. “He is really a very nice guy, down to earth, I will keep loving him always. He has got a bright future. I wish him all the best” the theatre owner said.
Vijay Deverakonda—who’s just made a Bollywood debut with Karan Johar’s dud #Liger—had recently mocked the audience.
Now, Manoj Desai—owner of the iconic G7 Multiplex (Gaiety-Galaxy) & Maratha Mandir—gives it back to such arrogant dolts like Vijay, Taapsee, and others. pic.twitter.com/YHBl4GShLX
