Liger, directed by Puri Jagannadh, who is best known for overseeing films like iSmart Shankar and Pokiri, was postponed due to the pandemic and now finally set to be released on August 25.

Ramya Krishnan portrays Vijay’s mother in the movie, while Ananya Panday plays the love interest. The highlight of the trailer is boxing legend Mike Tyson, who appears to be playing a villain.
Mike Tyson previously appeared in the film series The Hangover.
The trailer tells the tale of Vijay, an Indian tea vendor who eventually represents India to win the MMA championship.
Prior to the big trailer launch, Vijay travelled to Hyderabad with Ananya, Karan Johar, and Puri Jagannadh.
