Liger has been touted as one of the biggest releases of 2022. South Indian actor Vijay Deverakonda, who shot to overnight fame with his 2017 release Arjun Reddy, marked his pan-Indian debut with the actor.
The actor had high expectations for the film. He promoted the film across India and received warm reception wherever he went for promotions. Despite this, Liger failed to click with the audience and turned out to be a dud.
Last I heard, Vijay Deverakonda is very disappointed with the film’s dismal performance. He was reportedly not very happy with the final product after watching it at Sudarshan cinema in Hyderabad. And now that the final verdict is in, the actor is heartbroken over the film’s poor box office collection.
An entertainment portal reports that Deverakonda ‘cried’ after watching Liger in Hyderabad. The lukewarm response from his hometown audience left him shocked and depressed.
Liger is produced by Karan Johar, Puri Jagannadh and Charmme Kaur. Talking about several Bollywood films struggling at the box office, Kaur said in an interview, “People are getting access to better content at the click of a button just by sitting at home. The whole family can watch the big budget movies on TV, and until you really get them excited, they won’t come to the cinema.
She added: “But that’s not the case in Bollywood. In August, three Telugu films – Bimbisara, Sita Ramam and Karthikeya 2 – did wonders. It happened in the same country. It’s hard to understand because that does not mean that people in the South are crazy about movies. It is a scary and depressing situation.
Meanwhile, Vijay Deverakonda will next be seen in Jana Gana Mana, another Pan-Indian venture by Puri Jagannadh.
