Vijay Deverakonda's 'Liger' gets ready to roar in August 2022
We finally have the release date of Liger! The film's makers and also lead actor Vijay Deverakonda announced on the social media space that the much-anticipated film is set to be released on August 25, 2022. Alongside this, they informed that its first glimpse will be released on December 31, a perfect New Year gift for those who are waiting for this film.
Why does it matter?
- Liger, initially titled Fighter, was announced in August 2019. Its makers had planned to release the film on September 9, 2021, but then COVID-19 came.
- This new announcement has left fans of the World Famous Lover actor excited to the brim.
- Also, it's been more than a year since we saw Deverakonda on the big screens and who would mind his MMA fighter avatar?
