Boxing legend Mike Tyson will feature in Dharma Productions' much-anticipated film 'Liger' starring Vijay Deverakonda and Ananya Panday in lead roles. 'Liger' has been hogging the limelight ever since its inception but due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the makers of the movie held its shoot. In the latest development, the production house announced on their official Twitter handle that their much-awaited film will also feature boxing legend Mike Tyson. The news comes a day before the film's director Puri Jagannadh's birthday.


Sharing a video, introducing the master of the ring, the production house tweeted, "Introducing the master of the ring to the Indian screens! Kicked to announce that the dynamite @MikeTyson has joined the cast of #Liger! #NamasteTyson #HbdPuriJagannadh."

The makers earlier held a spine-chilling teaser unveiling Vijay in a never seen avatar in the film due to the Covid situation.

'Liger'was slated to get a worldwide theatrical release on September 9 in five languages - Hindi, Telugu, Tamil, Kannada and Malayalam but was also postponed due to the rising COVID-19 cases at that time. Earlier in January, Karan Johar, who has co-produced the project with Vijay, shared the official poster of the movie, unveiling the first look of Vijay as a boxer.

Directed by Puri Jagannadh, the film will also feature Ramya Krishnan, Ronit Roy, Vishu Reddy, among others. It has been co-produced by Charmme Kaur along with the director's production house Puri Connects.
