Vijay Deverakonda’s Nude Poster Was  Not His Producer’s  Idea

When  Telugu superstar Vijay Deverakonda suggested the nude poster for his Bollywood debut film Liger,  producer  Karan Johar  was  not too kicked  with the idea.

Apparently  Karan  tried hard to dissuade  Vijay, arguing  that there was no sense in a  boxer posing nude.

“But Vijay  was adamant. He wanted the first poster to be  eyecatching. Vijay wants to make a splash  with his  Bollywood debut. He has an entire strategy worked out to  promote  Liger. Many trolls are  blaming  producer  Karan  Johar and  director Puri Jagannath  for  Vijay’s  nude poster.  But  it was completely Vijay’s idea to pose in the buff for the Liger poster,” says  a  source close to the project.

Telugu superstar Vijay Deverakonda who turned  into an overnight sensation with his  rebellious Arjun Reddy  in 2017 ,is all set to make his Bollywood debut with Liger on  25 August .It is  a Karan Johar-Dharma production with Vijay playing a mixed-martial-arts specialist.

It had to be  an action film in Hindi for Vijay . He  was certain that whenever he entered  Bollywood it had to be  with something  he  hadn’t done before in Telugu.Liger is just the  entry Vijay  wanted in Hindi cinema. It  is  a full-on  big-screen experience.

The  mega-star whose fans in Andhra and Telangana are  known as  ‘Rowdies’ is rightly proud  of the  action sequences he has done in Liger(earlier titled Fighter). Apparently the action scenes  Vijay has attempted  successfully  in Liger has never been attempted before in Indian cinema.
