Telugu superstar Vijay Deverakonda left for the US in the last week of November to shoot for the climax of Liger, his Bollywood debut film co-produced by Karan Johar , Puri Jagannath and Charmee Kaur and directed by Jagannath.
An informed source reveals some details, “These are the toughest sequences of the film. The boxing has to be choreographed so as to make Vijay Deverakonda look like a professional boxer which is tough considering his opponent in the ring is a real-life world champion.”
Vijay Deverakonda has been training hard for the climactic bout. He has told his close friends that he doesn’t want to look unconvincing in the boxing ring.
Liger has been designed as the most authentic film on boxing of commercial Hindi cinema.
Says Vijay, “It’s not easy to stand in front of Mike Tyson. I want to look convincing.”
