Exclusive: Vijay Deverakonda's film with Puri Jagannadh titled Liger

The film features Vijay as a martial artist with a stammer, and Liger is said to be the character's name as well

Published: 05th February 2020

The first schedule of Vijay Deverakonda's upcoming martial arts film, directed by Puri Jagannadh, has was wrapped up in Mumbai recently. Now we hear that the title of the film, which is being made in Hindi and all four South Indian languages, has been finalised.

"After contemplating several options including Fighter, the makers have zeroed in on Liger as it fits the story best. In fact, Liger is the name of Vijay's character in the film and the makers have settled for it after Fighter was rejected in a couple of languages," informs a source.

The film is said to be an out-and-out action entertainer, that is totally different from what Vijay has done before.

Presented by Karan Johar, Liger showcases Vijay as a martial artist with a stammer. The 30-year-old actor, who has trained extensively in MMA and other combat sports in Thailand for the project, will be sporting six-pack abs with a new hairdo for the part.

Meanwhile, Vijay's next film World Famous Lover is coming out on Valentine's Day (February 14).
