As expected, Vijay Deverakonda’s boxing drama has been titled ‘Liger’. The film has an interesting title – ‘Saala Crossbreed’. ‘Liger’ means the hybrid offspring of a male lion and a tigress.
The film marks Vijay Deverakonda’s foray into Bollywood. Being directed by Puri Jagannadh and produced by Karan Johar, the movie’s first look was also unveiled today.
Vijay Deverakonda plays a boxer in this sports drama. He has bulked up his body to essay this character and got trained under a boxing guru. The first look features Vijay Deverakonda roaring with boxing gloves to his hands, with an image of Liger in the backdrop.
Vijay Deverakonda is trying to come out of his comfort zone and reach mass audiences with this movie. It is a Pan-Indian project, to be released in Telugu, Tamil, Hindi, Kannada, and Malayalam languages simultaneously.
Ananya Panday is the female lead, while Ramya Krishna plays Vijay Deverakonda’s mother. Charmee Kaur, Puri Jagannadh, and Apoorva Mehta are jointly producing this film.
