The list also features YouTube sensation Prajakta Koli, cricketer Smriti Mandhana, athletes Hima Das and Neeraj Chopra among others. Vijay, marked his acting debut with Nuvvila in 2011 and currently, he is working on Dear Comrade, where he will be seen as a student leader following philosophies of Communism.
Sharing the news with his fans, Deverakonda took to his official social media handle and shared a clean picture, where he can be seen all suited-up. "Forbes," he captioned the image. Recalling the time when his Andhra Bank account was locked for not maintaining a minimum balance of Rs 500, Vijay shared, “Dad said settle before 30 - That way you can enjoy your success when you are young and parents are healthy. 4 years later - Forbes Celebrity 100, Forbes 30 under 30.”
