Liger marks the coming together of Vijay Deverakonda and Puri Jagannadh. The project has been in the making for well over a year now and the shoot is being repeatedly postponed due to Covid outbreak. Now that the effect of Covid second wave is subsiding, the makers are planning to kickstart the forthcoming schedule next month.
Interestingly enough, a top OTT platform is already evincing great interest in the Vijay Deverakonda and Ananya Panday starrer as they are offering in excess of Rs 200 crores for the direct to digital rights of the film.
This OTT platform believes that Vijay’s Deverakonda’s pan-India following, paired with Puri Jagannadh’s style of making and Ananya Panday’s glamour will build huge pre-release buzz to the film. So, they are ready to spend big on the direct to digital and also the all-language satellite rights of the film. More details about this interesting deal are under the wraps for now.
Close to 40% of the shoot is yet to be completed. The final call on the OTT deal will be taken by the producers Karan Johar and Puri Jagannadh only as the shoot near completion. They sure are tempted by the mouth-watering proposal.
