Filming for the long-awaited actioner Liger resumed on Wednesday. Currently, the makers are canning the intense action stretches in the Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) format that involves Vijay Deverakonda and other foreign fighters.
The film’s co-producer, Charmme Kaur, shared the news with a new photo of Deverakonda from the sets on social media. “THE BLOOD SWEAT VIOLENCE starts today .. #shootmode #beastmode #LIGER #salaacrossbreed,” she wrote.
In the new photo, Vijay Deverakonda rests in a caged MMA ring, along with displaying a tattoo. It also featured actor Arjun Reddy with a new braided ponytail hairstyle.
Directed by Puri Jagannadh, Liger marks Deverakonda’s Bollywood debut. It also stars Ananya Panday in the lead female role. Ramya Krishnan and Ronit Bose Roy are also on board to fill other key roles.
Funded by Karan Johar’s Puri Connects and Dharma Productions, Liger will launch simultaneously in Telugu, Hindi, Tamil, Kannada, and Malayalam.
