After the Maharashtra government announced the reopening of cinemas, several Bollywood and South filmmakers began announcing the release date of their movies. At a time when pan-India biggies like RRR, Pushpa, Ponniyin Selvan and Radhe Shyam have announced the release date, makers of Liger are yet to announce the release date. And fans of Vijay Deverakonda have been curious to know the reason behind it.
Speaking to BollywoodLife, Vijay spilled the beans on the same and said, "Karenge... thoda time lekar karenge release date announcement. Basically, we're just waiting to get our US visas because we have like a two-week schedule there, where we need to shoot with Mike Tyson. Toh, ek baar woh visas ka permission mil gaya, then we can figure out the release date and when we'll be done. Woh... sirf woh last chunk baaki hai... so, I just want to be done with that and then we'll soon announce the release date. It'll be next year."
Ex-boxing World Heavyweight Champion Mike Tyson has an extended cameo scene in the film. A couple of days ago, Vijay shared the news on Instagram and wrote, "#NamasteTYSON #Liger We promised you Madness! We are just getting started :) For the first time on Indian Screens. Joining our mass spectacle - LIGER The Baddest Man on the Planet. The God of Boxing. The Legend, the Beast, the Greatest of all Time! IRON MIKE TYSON."
