Team Liger made our Diwali extra special by unveiling legendary boxer Mike Tyson's first look from the film, starring Vijay Deverakonda and Ananya Panday. On Thursday, the makers of the film, as well as the star cast, shared a new poster of Liger that features Mike Tyson's first look from the film. Sporting a grey suit, the former world heavyweight boxer looks fierce as he gets ready for a fiery and powerful punch. Sharing the poster on social media, Mike Tyson wrote: "Namaste INDIA. Be ready to get the ever-loving shit beat out of you #LIGER." Vijay Deverakonda also shared the poster with this caption: "Happy Diwali India. Pakka #AagLagaDenge. #LIGER." Liger is being directed by Puri Jagannadh and produced by Karan Johar.
