Liger starring Vijay Deverakonda and Ananya Panday in the lead is one of the most-anticipated movies set for release this year. Vijay has now revealed that it took him three days to master the stutter that his character has.
Talking in Mumbai at an event, he said that his character in the movie has a stammering problem and that it made things more interesting. He talked about his character more, saying that he is someone who is physically strong and intimidating but cannot speak easily because of his stutter.
"It added both subtle humour and an emotional layer to his character. Initially, when we started shooting, I was struggling to get the right note, but after three days, everything was easy" Vijay said, as reported by Mid Day.
The actor also opened up by stating that he is really bad at multi-tasking and that he can only focus on one thing at a time. He further added that he gets confused if there is too much on his plate and so he will only do one movie at a time.
Vijay, who became an overnight sensation following the release of Arjun Reddy, will foray into Bollywood with the release of Liger. Bankrolled by Dharma Productions and Puri Connects, Liger is a bilingual made in Hindi and Telugu.
Apart from Vijay and Ananya Panday, the movie also stars Ramya Krishna, Ronit Roy, and Makarand Deshpande in important roles. Another highlight of the movie is a cameo by boxing legend Mike Tyson.
Helmed by Puri Jagannadh, the movie will see Vijay play a kickboxer with a stutter. The romantic sports drama is set to hit theatres around the country on August 25.
