Liger is an action movie based on boxing, where Vijay Deverakonda plays the role of a kickboxer who follows a strict exercise regime. He also is an expert at kickboxing, and martial arts and leaves no stone unturned to transform himself and even visits Thailand for his training.
The movie will feature Ananya Panday in her first Telugu movie and Vijay Deverakonda in his first Hindi movie. Before Ananya, Jhanvi Kapoor was the filmmaker’s first choice but ended up signing Ananya Panday. The Iron Mike Tyson is said to be playing a very pivotal role in the film.
Liger Trailer and Teaser
An official concept trailer of the film was released earlier this year on May 1, 2021, where we see Vijay in the role of a kickboxer. We also witness Ananya Panday in her usual glamorous role.
The trailer can be clearly deciphered as an action-packed film that begins with the dialogue “your fight is bigger than any of these championships because your fight is with yourself”. We can very well understand that the protagonist of the movie is a hard taskmaster who is doing anything and everything to toughen himself up.

Happy Diwali Indiaaa 🤗
