In 2019, Shahid Kapoor got the biggest blockbuster of his career with Kabir Singh. The film was a remake of the Telugu film Arjun Reddy starring Vijay Deverakonda in lead. And the success of the former led to even Vijay coming into limelight in the Hindi film circuit. I was also one of those people who got to know about Vijay’s previous work after that and was mesmerised by him. Soon, the actor was spotted at social events held by Karan Johar and the filmmaker even got the rights to the Hindi remake of Vijay’s latest release at the time, Dear Comrade. Shortly after, Karan announced Vijay’s Hindi film debut with him in a mixed martial arts multilingual film titled Liger, which also features Ananya Panday and Mike Tyson. And now we have a date for the same.

Check out the announcement:

Liger was earlier supposed to release in September earlier this year but due to the lockdown and theatres being closed in major portion of the country, the release was postponed. Now, the film will be releasing on August 25, 2022 in Hindi, Telugu, Tamil, Malayalam and Kannada, with a special glimpse of the film to be released this New Year’s Eve. The film is directed by Puri Jagannadh and also features Ronit Roy and Ramya Krishnan.

Last month the team of Liger shot in the deserts of Nevada, Las Vegas, sharing some fun-filled glimpses from behind the scenes, and those just increased my intrigue for the film. Ananya has already made a name for herself in Hindi films in a very small amount of time, so I am eager to see how she does as she debuts in the South circuit. Also, the presence of legend Mike Tyson makes this film a must watch anyhow, so this is indeed going to be a fun and adventurous ride.
