The first trailer for the pan-Indian film 'Liger' starring Vijay Deverakonda, Ananya Pandey, and Ramya Krishnan was released today.
Deverakonda plays an MMA fighter in this underdog story about how a common man from India makes it in the world of professional MMA fighters. Shot mostly in India and the US, 'Liger' refers to the crossbreed between a lion and a tiger, which is what Deverakonda's character is described as.
Mike Tyson plays the role of a foe, against Deverakonda, and is reported to have an extended cameo in the film.
'Liger' is set to release worldwide on August 25.
