He mentioned that this film took his everything as an actor.
The actor took to his social media and shared his fiery look from Liger. He wrote, “A Film that took my everything. As a performance, Mentally, physically my most challenging role. I give you everything! Coming Soon #LIGER.” Vijay Deverakonda will be seen playing a Kickboxer with a speech defect.

His fans were quick to react to his new poster:
Liger is about an underdog, who rises to become an MMA fighter, straight from the streets of Mumbai. Slated to hit the theatres on August 25, the movie will feature America’s former professional boxer, Mike Tyson, in an important role.
Cinematography is handled by Vishnu Sarma, while Kecha from Thailand is the stunt director. Puri Jagannadh, Charmme Kaur, Karan Johar, and Apoorva Mehta together are bankrolling the film.
