Vijay Deverakonda in and as Liger.
By Roktim Rajpal: Vijay Deverakonda recently suffered a setback when Liger failed to live up to expectations and ended up being a colossal flop. It received negative reviews, with most critics tearing up the lackluster script. Now, it looks like Vijay is planning to collaborate with filmmaker Harish Shankar for this upcoming movie. However, there is no official announcement about it. Moreover, he is unlikely to immediately go to the floors.
VIJAY DEVERAKONDA TO WORK WITH HARISH SHANKAR?
Vijay Deverakonda may soon team up with Harish Shankar, best known for directing Pawan Kalyan in Gabbar Singh. The film is likely to go on the ground once Rowdy has completed Khushi, his film with Samantha Ruth Prabhu. It was also reported that Vijay’s movie starring Harish Shankar will be financed by Dil Raju.
Liger, shot simultaneously in Hindi and Telugu, marks Vijay Deverakonda’s Bollywood debut. It is a sports drama that stars actor Arjun Reddy as a mixed martial arts (MMA) fighter with a speech impediment. His character is making an impact in the world of combat sports despite setbacks in his personal life. Bollywood star Ananya Panday makes her Tollywood debut with the biggie leading Puri Jagannadh. Liger also features Ramya Krishnan, Ronit Roy, and Makrand Deshpande, among others, in pivotal roles.
LOADED TIME FOR VIJAY DEVERAKONDA
Vijay Deverakonda is currently working on Khushi. The romantic drama marks her second collaboration with Samantha after Mahanati (2018). He was to be the headliner for Puri Jagannadh’s Jana Gana Mana (JGM), with Pooja Hegde as the headliner, but the actor was put on hold following the disappointing response to Liger. Vijay also has a movie with director Pushpa Sukumar in her kitty.
