After sharing the first look of Liger in January this year, the makers have finally announced the release date of the film. Starring Vijay Deverakonda in the leading role, the film is a pan-India flick co-starring Ananya Panday as the female lead. Directed by Puri Jagannadh, Liger is slated to release on September 9, 2021, on the big screen. The announcement was made with a new kickass poster featuring Vijay.
In the poster, Vijay is seen donning an angry look by going shirtless and holding a stick. He is sporting a messy hairdo with a few bloodsheds on the poster. Karan Johar, who is co-producing the film captioned the post stating, “All set to pack a punch around the globe! #Liger is releasing in theatres on 9th September worldwide in 5 languages – Hindi, Telugu, Tamil, Kannada & Malayalam. #Liger9thSept #SaalaCrossbreed @thedeverakonda @ananyapanday #PuriJagannadh @charmmekaur @apoorva1972 @ronitboseroy @meramyakrishnan @iamVishuReddy @dharmamovies @puriconnects.”

This is the first time we will see Vijay and Ananya on the big screen together and Liger is set to be released in five languages namely Hindi, Telugu, Tamil, Kannada and Malayalam.
Earlier while praising Deverakonda, Ananya had said, “I have yet to meet someone so grounded and humble despite being such a huge star. He is kind and soft-spoken.”
Talking about her character, Panday had shared, “My character is quite like the real me. I think young girls will be able to relate to her cute, funny and charming personality. I am working on my Telugu too, learning a few words every day on the set. I will try to dub for myself in as many languages as possible.”
Vijay will also be making his Hindi debut with Liger!
