Is Vijay Deverakonda and Ananya Panday's much talked about movie Liger headed for a digital release? Not really, says the south superstar. Vijay Deverakonda recently spotted a speculative report about Liger's release format and dismissed it in a tweet. The report stated that the makers of Liger are currently considering a ludicrous deal of Rs 200 crore for a digital release and also for its satellite rights in all languages, hinting that Liger may premiere on an OTT platform. Without saying much, Vijay Deverakonda set the record straight in these words: "Too little. It'll do more in the theatres."
