Vijay Deverakonda Faces Flak For His ‘Sexist’ Caption Under ‘Liger’ Song Teaser

Several films, television serials, and even society have propagated this idea that a woman always comes between the mother and the son. It is incredibly sexist and much of the hostility faced by women by their mothers-in-law stems from this thought. You would think that in 2022 we would have been far past this. But no.

Actor Vijay Deverakonda recently shared the teaser for the song ‘Aafat’ from his upcoming film ‘Liger’ alongside Ananya Panday. The caption reads, “There’s always a beautiful drama Queen who will come between a mother and son!”

This may have been suggested by the film’s promotional team or Vijay himself…we don’t know. But an acclaimed actor with a massive following allowing such captions to be put on his personal Instagram handle is disappointing, to say the least.
