Mike Tyson, the legendary boxer, will appear in Dharma Productions’ eagerly awaited film ‘Liger,’ starring Vijay Deverakonda and Ananya Panday. ‘Liger’ has been hogging the spotlight since its start, but the film’s production was stopped owing to the COVID-19 epidemic.
THE LEGEND – Mike Tyson In Liger
The production company recently stated on their official Twitter account that their much-anticipated film will also feature boxing legend, Mike Tyson. The announcement comes a day before Puri Jagannadh, the film’s director, celebrates his birthday.
Dharma Productions posted a video presenting the master of the ring, saying, “The master of the ring is coming to Indian screens! I’m thrilled to announce that @MikeTyson has joined the cast of #Liger! #HbdPuriJagannadh #NamasteTyson” The video was also uploaded by leading actor Vijay Deverakonda, who wrote, “Madness was promised to you! We’re only getting started here 🙂 This is the first time the film has been shown in India. LIGER has decided to become a part of our massive show.

The professional boxer, who made history by becoming the world’s youngest heavyweight champion at the age of 20 in 1986, is widely regarded as one of the best heavyweight fighters of all time. Due to the Covid scenario, the directors released a scary teaser that showed Vijay in a never-before-seen avatar in the film.
‘Liger’ was supposed to be released in five languages on September 9 – Hindi, Telugu, Tamil, Kannada, and Malayalam – but it was postponed due to the rising COVID-19 incidents at the time.
Karan Johar, who co-produced the film with Vijay, revealed the official poster of the film earlier this month, revealing Vijay’s first glimpse as a boxer. Puri Jagannadh is directing the film, which also stars Ramya Krishnan, Ronit Roy, and Vishu Reddy. It was co-produced by Charmme Kaur and Puri Connects, the director’s production company.
