Vijay Deverakonda Starrer Liger Latest Updates Posted:
Directed by Puri Jagannadh, Liger stars Vijay Deverakonda, Ananya Panday, Ramya Krishna and Ronit Roy in key roles. Legendary boxer Mike Tyson will make an extended cameo in the film.
Vijay Deverakonda and Ananya Panday starrer Liger will hit the theatres on August 25. Directed by Puri Jagannadh, the pan-Indian film follows the story of a boxer who fights against the odds to make it big. Liger is released in Hindi, Telugu, Tamil, Malayalam and Kannada. Liger’s promos and songs didn’t give away the film’s story. The Dharma Productions-Puri Connects film was three years in the making and faced many delays due to the pandemic. Mike Tyson and Ramya Krishnan also play prominent roles.
Film trade analyst Girish Johar said audiences are looking forward to Liger. “Dharma Productions is going all out in promoting the film. They are not lagging behind in promoting the film in all corners and cities of the country. The craze among the audience is huge, which is evident from the crowd that gathers to catch a glimpse of Ananya and Vijay at the promotions,” he told indianexpress.com.
The film’s distributor Akshaye Rathi said, “The film appeals to the common man in India, the mass audience in tier 2 and 3 cities who go to single screens, so it will be big on current bookings. People will go to theatres in large numbers on the day of its release rather than booking tickets in advance.” Vijay and Ananya were on a national tour to promote the film.

Deepak, who runs the box office tracking website AndhraBoxOffice.com, said the film could open at Rs 35 crore. He told ndianexpress.com, “Liger should double the collection on the opening day of Dear Comrade. A lot has changed between that movie and Liger. The market has grown and is now more dynamic. I think the worldwide collection of Dear Comrade was around Rs 18 crore. And I think Liger will make close to Rs 35 crore on its release day.
