Young actor Vijay Devarakonda and sensational filmmaker Puri Jagannadh are teaming up for the first time for Liger, an action entertainer that presents Vijay Devarakonda as a boxer. Over 50 percent of the film's shoot got completed and the shoot was kept on hold last year due to the coronavirus. Though the entire film industry returned back to work, the shoot of Liger did not resume. The shoot started recently in Mumbai and is kept on hold again.
Puri Jagannadh and his team also considered Hyderabad to shoot the pending portions after the spread of coronavirus is huge in Mumbai. But the major sets are erected in Mumbai and a bunch of foreign fighters are yet to arrive to India. These may be the reasons for the shoot of Liger to be stalled. Ananya Pandey plays the love interest of Vijay Devarakonda in this sportsdrama and Puri Jagannadh, Karan Johar are jointly producing this big-budget project. Liger is announced for September 9th release across the globe in Telugu, Hindi, Tamil, Kannada and Malayalam languages.
