Born: 9th May 1989 (Achampet, Telangana, India)
Vijay is most known for his part as "Rishi" in the 2015 film 'Yevade Subramanyam', which he made his film debut at a young age following a spell in the theatrical industry. Because Vijay's father was an actor, it was only natural for him to pursue a career in the entertainment industry. He, like his father, discovered his interest in front of the camera and began to devote his time and energy to the business shortly after. While being born into the actor's family may have given Devarakonda an advantage, no one can dispute that he has innate talent and ability in the field. After making his theatrical debut, Devarakonda made a rapid transition to the silver screen, starring in many films. Devarakonda's major break came with the film 'Yevade Subramanyam', which followed his debut in a modest part.
Early Life & Education
Vijay was born in the Telangana town of Achampet, in the Nagarkurnool district. Vijay was admitted into the Sri Sathya Sai Higher Secondary School in Puttaparthi, Ananthapur District, Andhra Pradesh, where he completed his education alongside his younger brother. Vijay had spent most of his formative years at this institution, where he had been away from home for over 10 months.
Vijay attributes his development as a man to the overall learning environment provided by this institution. Vijay describes the atmosphere at school as tranquil and calm, with no phones or televisions in the classroom. Vijay believes that reading the newspaper daily to stay up with the current developments, followed by playing sports, reading books, and participating in a variety of activities, has helped him polish his creative abilities. It was around this time that Vijay acquired a strong interest in storytelling, writing, and performing. After completing his secondary education, he returned to Hyderabad and continued his study at Little Flower Junior College and Badruka College of Commerce, both in Hyderabad.
Vijay's first real foray into the world of entertainment was a short spell with a theatrical company named Sutradhar, which is situated in Hyderabad and was his first professional gig. He participated in a three-month workshop, which resulted in his being cast in numerous plays in the Hyderabad theatrical scene. Ingenium Dramatics was the institution with which he had a long-standing affiliation. Soon after, he began working in the film industry.
Vijay appeared in the film Life is Beautiful, directed by Sekhar Kammula, in a supporting part. It was while working on the set that he met Nag Ashwin, who was working as an assistant director at the time.

The film was produced by Ashwini Dutt's daughters, who are well-known in the Telugu cinema industry as top producers. Priyanka Dutt saw his promise and encouraged him to pursue it; after filming began, Swapna Dutt hired him to work at her production firm. With Vijay's depiction of Rishi conquering hearts throughout the Telugu states and garnering widespread acclaim from fans and critics alike, the film went on to become a tremendous hit at the box office.
