Vijay Deverakonda, Puri Jagannadh, and the team of Liger have been touring across the country in the name of Fandom Tours. The film ‘Liger’ is produced by Dharma Productions and Puri Connects, and has south superstar Vijay Deverakonda as the lead. It is releasing in cinemas in Telugu, Hindi, Tamil, Kannada, and Malayalam languages pan-India on August 25.
Liger is an upcoming Indian sports action film written and directed by Puri Jagannadh and is shot simultaneously in Hindi and Telugu languages. Vijay stars as the titular MMA fighter boxer alongside Ananya Panday. The film marks the debut of Deverakonda in Hindi cinema and Panday in Telugu cinema. American boxer Mike Tyson plays an extended cameo, thus making his acting debut in Indian cinema.
The team has commenced their Telugu States tour starting from Warangal. A huge crowd attended the event. Speaking at the event, Vijay said, “Wherever I went in India, the people spread a lot of love. People came in unexpected numbers. I don’t understand why they are showing so much love. But whatever is happening, it actually started here. I will never forget the love you showered. On August 25, your love should be returned. I said in Warangal itself that it will be Aag Laaga Denge on August 25th. Mom and son in Liger leave Karimnagar and go to Mumbai. Mom wants to see her son as a champion. Puri is like my father and Charmme is like my mother. We set out to fight no matter how many difficulties we face. One should be lucky to deliver the dialogues of Puri. My favorite dialogue in Liger -‘ We are Indians..Podham Kotladudham… Aag Hai Andhar. DuniyakoAag laga Denge. Sab ki Waat Laga Denge.’ There is no doubt about the movie. The movie is a blockbuster. If Telangana and Andhra shake, the whole of India should hear the sound. On August 25th, we will all strike together. Thanks to all the Liger team. Thanks to all audience. I love you”.
Ananya Panday who is making her Telugu debut with the film drew so much response from the crowd at the tour. “My name is Ananya Pandey. Hello Telugu audience. I love the Telugu audience. I want to be a part of the Telugu film family. I wish to be given that opportunity. I feel lucky to make an entry in Telugu with Liger. It was a pleasure to work with Vijay Deverakonda, Puri and Mike Tyson. Vijay Devarakonda is my darling. Liger is coming on August 25th in theaters. Liger is a full mass commercial movie. You will have fun,” the actress said.
