Actress and producer Charmme Kaur has decided to take a break from social media. The Liger co-producer made the announcement on her handle this morning, "Chill guys! Just taking a break ( from social media ) @PuriConnects will bounce back
It looks like the box office performance of Liger has affected Vijay Deverakonda badly. Reports are that the actor is set to return 6 crore rupees to the Liger producer and the film's failure seems to become a thorn in the professional relationship between Puri Jagannadh and Vijay Deverakonda. The sports action drama is written and directed by Puri Jagannadh and was simultaneously shot in Telugu and Hindi. Liger was bankrolled by Karan Johar, Puri Jagannadh, Charmme Kaur, Apoorva Mehta and Hiroo Yash Johar.
While Liger marked Ananya Panday's debut in Tollywood, it was Vijay Deverakonda's debut in the Hindi film industry. The film also starred Ramya Krishnan, Ronit Roy, Makarand Deshpande, Chunky Panday and had a guest appearance by one of the greatest heavyweight boxers Mike Tyson. Deverakonda plays the titular character, an MMA boxer in the film and the actor had undergone a physical transformation for his character in it. Liger had suffered many production delays due to the pandemic. The film, which released on August 25, received negative reviews from the critics and audience alike and became a box-office failure.
