New Delhi: Boxing legend Mike Tyson will be seen in Dharma Productions’ much awaited film ‘Liger’ starring Vijay Deverakonda and Ananya Panday in the lead roles. This is a big deal and fans are going gaga over this news.
‘Liger’ has been making headlines since its inception, but due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the makers of the film stopped its shooting. In the latest development, the production house announced on its official Twitter handle that their much-awaited film will also star boxing legend Mike Tyson. This news comes a day before the birthday of the film’s director Puri Jagannath.
Sharing a video, introducing the Master of the Ring, the production house tweeted, “Introducing the Master of the Ring on Indian screens! Kicked off to announce that Dynamite @MikeTyson #Liger! #NamasteTyson #HbdPuriJagannadh joined the cast.”
The professional boxer, who made headlines around the world in 1986 when he became the youngest heavyweight champion in boxing history at age 20, is widely regarded as one of the greatest heavyweight fighters of all time.
The makers previously put out a spine-chilling teaser unveiling Vijay in a never-seen-before avatar in the film due to the COVID situation.
‘Ligar’ was slated to release worldwide on September 9 in five languages - Hindi, Telugu, Tamil, Kannada and Malayalam, but was also postponed due to the rising COVID-19 cases at the time.
Earlier in January, Karan Johar, who has co-produced the project with Vijay, shared the official poster of the film, revealing Vijay’s first look as a boxer.
Directed by Puri Jagannath, the film will also star Ramya Krishnan, Ronit Roy, Vishu Reddy. It is produced by Charmme Kaur in association with the director’s production house Puri Connects.
