Vijay Deverakonda, who made his Koffee With Karan 7, managed to win the hamper for the Rapid Fire in the first go. As expected, there were a lot of cheesy conversations during the show. About the cheese reference, KJo asked Vijay if he likes "cheese,' cryptically referring to a previous episode where Janhvi Kapoor and Sara Ali Khan both confessed (well, almost) to having a crush on Vijay and went on to refer to him as "cheese" on the episode. Vijay's reply was this: "I am scared about where this is leading." Vijay's Liger co-star Ananya Panday added, "This was hunger games." Vijay added, "They are really kind and sweet." When KJo asked the actor who does he find "more hot" among the two, he replied, "They are both attractive, young women." He added that he has met Janhvi Kapoor a couple of times and said, "She is an adorable girl and I have met her a couple of times."
During the Rapid Fire segment, the star was asked to name the most desirable woman in India. His reply was Samantha Ruth Prabhu. He was then asked to say a word that comes to his mind to describe a few celebrities. For Kushi co-star Samantha, Vijay said, "She is a darling. She is amazing. An incredible woman." He described Sara Ali Khan as "witty and funny." Asked to describe Janhvi, he said, "cute."
In a previous episode, Karan Johar asked Sara to "name of a boy you feel like you want to date today." Sara, who was hesitant at first, said "Vijay Deverakonda." Earlier, in Koffee With Karan 6, Janhvi Kapoor too had confessed that she had a crush on Vijay Deverakonda.
Vijay Deverakonda made his acting debut in 2011 film Nuvvila. However, his breakout performance was in the 2016 film Pelli Choopulu. The actor is best-known for his performances in films like Sandeep Reddy Vanga's Arjun Reddy, Ye Mantram Vesave, Mahanati, Nadigaiyar Thilagam, Geetha Govindam and Dear Comrade, to name a few. In terms of work, the Telugu star was last seen in World Famous Lover.
