Liger will release in five languages, including Hindi, Tamil and Telugu. Vijay reportedly plays a kickboxer with a stutter in Liger. He underwent a dramatic physical transformation for the film and even went to Thailand to train in martial arts.
In the first poster, Vijay Deverakonda can be seen sporting an aggressive look and he can be seen wearing boxing gloves on his hands. Speaking of the project that marks Vijay Deverakonda's Bollywood debut, the actor earlier told news agency PTI, "It's a project that required me to undergo a drastic physical transformation and I've been working non-stop to pull off the character. I play a fighter and the role required me to learn mixed martial arts."
