Liger is a pan-Indian project starring Vijay Deverakonda and Ananya Panday in the lead. Fans would not just get to see a new onscreen pair, but also enjoy the film in five languages, including Telugu and Hindi. Directed by Puri Jagannadh, the theatrical release date of the film will be announced tomorrow, February 11. There have been several films that could not opt for theatrical release due to coronavirus lockdown and instead zeroed down on OTT platforms. But Liger is definitely going to hit the big screens and it’s a bonanza amid pandemic as the I&B ministry recently confirmed that the theatres, multiplexes and cinema halls can run at 100% occupancy.
