The teaser of the movie was earlier scheduled to release in May, however, due to the devastating second wave of coronavirus in the country the makers of the film had postponed the date of teaser release. At the time, it was also said that Liger would hit the theatres on September 9. However, the pandemic affected the shooting schedule of the movie and now it remains undecided as to when the movie will be released.

The movie will mark the first pan-India film for both Ananya and Deverakonda. The title of the film Liger is a combination of Lion and Tiger which describes the protagonist’s character in the movie .Deverakonda will play the role of a mixed martial artist in the film and as Charmee’s tweet suggested, it will come with some serious action scenes.
