Vijay Devrakonda confirms makers are planning for a sequel

Vijay Deverakonda promises a solid entertainer with ‘Liger’, wherein he essays the role of an MMA fighter. The actor will debut in Bollywood in an action-packed avatar while romancing Ananya Panday. The film is slated for release next week and the audience is yet to give their verdict on it, but the actor has already confirmed a second installment. During recent interactions, Vijay Deverakonda has confirmed that the makers are planning a sequel to ‘Liger’.


Speaking about his character, Vijay shared that he essays a part that has several layers. “My character in the film has a stammering problem and that made it more interesting. On one hand, he is the guy who is physically so strong and intimidating to others, he is a fighter, but he can’t even utter the simple three words ‘I love you to the girl he loves. It added both subtle humor and an emotional layer to his character. Initially, when we started shooting, I was struggling to get the right note, but after three days, everything was easy,” shared Vijay.

‘Liger’ is helmed by Puri Jagannadh and features a special cameo by former American boxer Mike Tyson. Post ‘Liger, Puri, and Vijay will collaborate for ‘Jana Gana Mana’. This Telugu-language military action film features Pooja Hegde as the leading lady.
