Liger was one of the most ambitious projects of Puri Jagannadh and Vijay Deverakonda’s careers. As per Puri and Vijay, This pan India project was expected to ‘shake India’. However, everything didn’t go as per plan and the movie was severely panned by the critics and ended up as a huge disaster. The movie left Puri with massive losses and Vijay with a massive flop in his filmography.
The sports action drama starred Ananya Pandey and Ramya Krishnan in key roles. Karan Johar and Puri jointly produced the film. This much anticipated pan-India project was released in Telugu, Tamil, Kannada, Hindi as well as in Malayalam.
Vijay Deverakonda is no.1 in tier2 Heros without any doubt. And this fact was proved yet again by Liger openings. As earlier mentioned by many, the only problem with Vijay is his off-screen speeches which put a heavy burden on him. During Liger’s promotions as well he made several over-the-top statements and showcased a careless attitude.
However, all that looks like a thing of the past. Vijay’s recent speech at SIIMA showcased the kind of maturity he has developed and his passionate talk about movies and his efforts won several hearts. Fans and movie lovers found his mature and passionate speech quite heartwarming. This change of behaviour has been quite a pleasant surprise for all.
