Vijay’s poster from Liger got reactions from his fans instantly. Responding to his post, a user wrote on Twitter, “It’s very rare (to) see actors accepting such bold roles & posing bold.” Vijay’s look has also reminded many of Aamir Khan’s controversial poster from his film PK.
Liger will release in five languages, including Hindi, Tamil and Telugu. The movie also stars Ananya in the lead alongside Mike Tyson. It had been shot in the US earlier. It features Vijay as a kickboxer who went from being ‘chaiwaala’ in Mumbai to becoming a professional boxer, competing in the US. He underwent a dramatic physical transformation for the film and even went to Thailand to train in martial arts.
Vijay, known as South superstar, shot to fame after the success of the Telugu film Pelli Choopulu in 2016. He then starred in several movies, including Arjun Reddy, which was later adapted in Hindi as Kabir Singh with Shahid Kapoor and Kiara Advani in the lead.
