It’s ‘Liger’ week finally. The much awaited sports drama ‘Liger’ by heartthrob Vijay Deverakonda is all set to be released on this Thursday, August 25. This movie gained a lot of popularity thanks to aggressive marketing, controversy, and compelling trailers. After a two-year sabbatical, Vijay Deverakonda is making a comeback to the big screen, and his admirers can’t wait to see him. “World Famous Lover,” Vijay’s last release, came out on February 14, 2020. At the box office, the movie bombed. With “Liger,” the “Arjun Reddy” actor hopes to make a big comeback.
Booking for ‘Liger’ has started in domestic and international markets. This movie has great advance bookings. The movie is probably going to have a huge opening weekend at the box office, comparable to star-hero movies.
With advance bookings, “Liger” has already surpassed the $140,000 mark in the US. The movie should make $400k on its first day in cinemas. The advance bookings have brought in Rs 1 crore in Hyderabad alone, which is a fantastic sum for this young hero. Advance bookings give some indication of the trade that “Liger” is anticipated to take, and the rest depends on the buzz surrounding the movie.
Vijay Devarakonda and “Liger” have recently been in the news for both positive and bad reasons. Many of the actor’s detractors have targeted him on social media, and Bollywood netizens are organising boycott campaigns against “Liger” for a number of different reasons. The movie appeared unaffected despite the criticisms and debates. If Puri’s material lives up to public expectations, “Liger” will break numerous records over the next few days.
“Liger” is a sports action film written and directed by Puri Jagannadh, and it is shot simultaneously in Telugu and Hindi languages. Vijay will play an MMA boxer and fighter in the film. Ananya Panday plays the female lead, while Ronit Roy, Ramya Krishna, and Mike Tyson will play other important roles in the film. Interestingly, Mike Tyson is making his acting debut in Indian cinema with this movie. The film is releasing in Telugu, Tamil, Kannada, Hindi as well as in Malayalam.
