Vijay Deverakonda shares the LATEST update on Liger release date; REVEALS how Mike Tyson has caused a delay in announcement

As soon as the Maharashtra government announced the reopening of theatres in the state from 22nd October onward, several movies from both Bollywood and South made a beeline to announce their films' release dates, booking slots as far ahead as mid-2022. Among all this, what has piqued everyone's curiosity is why the makers of Liger haven't yet announced its release date, when other pan-India biggies like RRR, PushpaKGF 2, Ponniyin Selvan and Radhe Shyam have already marked the calendar. Well, we finally have the latest update from the horse's mouth as Vijay Deverakonda has dropped the dope on when we could expect Liger's release date to be announced and why the announcement has been delayed till now.

Opening up on Liger's release date, Vijay Deverakonda said, “Karenge... thoda time lekar karenge release date announcement (we'll announce it soon, we'll take a little time, but will soon announce the release date). Basically, we're just waiting to get our US visas because we have a like 2-week schedule there, where we need to shoot with Mike Tyson. Toh, ek baar woh visas ka permission mil gaya (once we get the permission for the visas), then we can figure out the release date and when we'll be done. Woh...sirf woh last chunk baaki hai (only the last chunk remain to shoot) – so, I just want to be done with that and then we'll soon announce the release date. It'll be next year.”

Liger is written and directed by Puri Jagannadh, and is also produced by him along with Karan Johar and Charmme Kaur. It also stars Ananya Panday as the female lead, with Ramya Krishnan, Ronit Roy and Makarand Deshpande in pivotal supporting roles, plus ex-boxing World Heavyweight Champion Mike Tyson in an extended cameo.
