The trailer for Puri Jagannadh's Liger, starring Vijay Deverakonda and Ananya Panday, was unveiled on Thursday, revealing considerably more about the film's plot than previously.
Vijay posted about it on social media, saying, “India, We give you, Mass. Action. Entertainment. The LIGER Trailer! https://bit.ly/LigerTrailer. #LIGER #LigerTrailer Aug 25th Worldwide release! (sic)” Chiranjeevi and Prabhas launched the trailer for the action film in Telugu, Dulquer Salmaan in Malayalam, and Ranveer Singh in Hindi.
Vijay Deverakonda plays the 'cross breed' Liger in the trailer. He is a Mumbai chai ala who aspires to represent India in an MMA championship. He also has a disability, which presents a significant difficulty. Ananya portrays his cheating lover, while Mike Tyson plays a rancher he meets in the United States. Ronit Roy portrays his coach, and Ramya Krishnan plays his assertive and independent mother.
Vijay Deverakonda underwent a total transformation to play the role, from growing his hair to buffing up his figure. The teaser suggests that the film will be a high-octane actioner with a classic Puri-style plot. The film's cinematography is by Vishnu Sarma, while the stunt director is Kecha from Thailand. On August 25, Liger will release in Hindi, Telugu, Tamil, Kannada, and Malayalam across India. The film also stars Vishu Reddy, Ali, Makarand Desh Pandey, and Getup Srinu.
