The trailer of the Liger, Dharma Productions' next venture, dropped today. Starring Vijay Deverakonda and Ananya Panday, the film has been on the watchlist of many Indians ever since it was announced. Directed by Puri Jagannadh, best known for helming projects like iSmart Shankar and Pokiri, Liger was delayed due to the pandemic but is now finally releasing on August 25. The trailer shows Vijay, a kickboxer who has a speech impairment and gets embroiled in multiple gangster fights. While Ananya Panday plays Vijay's love interest, Ramya Krishnan plays his mother in the film. The highlight of the clip, however, is boxing legend Mike Tyson, who seems to be starring in a negative role. Mike Tyson has previously starred in The Hangover film series.
