Vijay Deverakonda’s next pan Indian film Liger, directed by Puri Jagannadh and co starring Bollywood diva Ananya Panday, is one of the most anticipated films. The first look and Vijay’s and Ananya’s chemistry has created a lot of curiosity among the movie buffs about what is in store. While the team of Liger is awaiting to commence shoot in Mumbai, Vijay Deverakonda recently opened up about working with Ananya Panday and his debut in Bollywood.
While this fresh pair is already creating a lot of buzz, Vijay cannot stop gushing about his experience of working with Ananya Panday, who is making her debut in the South film industry. In his recent interaction with a leading daily, Vijay Deverakonda heaped praises for Ananya and said, “Ananya is lovely! She works hard and does a really good job. She is a fun co star (sic.)”
Liger will also mark the debut of Vijay Deverakonda in the Bollywood industry. While the fans are excited to see him in this grand project, Vijay stated that he never planned to venture into Bollywood. He said, “I’m not someone who works on plans. As soon as I heard the script, the story, I wanted it to be a part of it. And it made sense to make a pan-India movie because it was a story that I feel the country will enjoy watching. I felt ready for it hence we scaled it up. Everyone was on board and we set it up that way. But it was not an intentional plan to enter Bollywood. Liger is just something that happened (sic.)”
Liger also features Ramya Krishnan, Ronit Roy, Vishu Reddy, Aali, Makarand Desh Pandey and Getup Srinu in key roles. The movie is produced by Karan Johar’s Dharma Productions and Puri Connects, a production house owned by Puri Jagannath and Charmme Kaur. Liger will be released in five languages – Telugu, Hindi, Tamil, Malayalam and Kannada.
