New Delhi:

Vijay Deverakonda is a national heartthrob and there are no two ways about this. The actor, who rose to prominence with his career-defining role in Arjun Reddy, is known for charisma on-screen and candour off-screen. Vijay Deverakonda made his way up the ladder in Telugu cinema with supporting roles, soon taking on the mantle of the romantic hero while also being adept at handling the “angry young man” troupe. With Liger, Vijay Deverakonda is making his mark as the bonafide pan-Indian superstar under the watchful gaze of director Puri Jagannadh and producer Karan Johar. The film stars Vijay Deverakonda, as an MMA fighter, opposite Ananya Panday.
