Vijay Deverakonda and Ananya Panday's much-hyped Liger, which hit screens a few days ago, has failed to meet the expectations of the fans. The film opened to negative reviews the critics and audience alike. Though Vijay Deverakonda's performance as MMA boxer has won appreciation from some, the film's lackluster plot and screenplay has left fans of the actor hugely disappointed.

Vijay Deverakonda had become the talk of the town during his aggressive promotions for the film across the country. The Tollywood star was welcomed amid huge fanfare everywhere so much so that he had to leave the venues as the crowd went out of control. During one such promotions, he had commented on the boycott trend in Bollywood, saying, "I feel that there is no room for fear. When I had nothing, I didn’t fear. Now after having achieved something, I don’t think there needs to be any fear even now."

With the film being brutally trolled by many, a theatre owner from Mumbai has slammed the Liger star and said that he should have learnt from Aamir Khan and refrained from commenting on the Boycott Bollywood hashtag trend.

In an interview with BollywoodLife, Manoj Desai, the executive director of Gaiety Galaxy and Maratha Mandir Cinema Manoj Desai, had said, "Why are you showing smartness by saying ‘Boycott our movie’? Your behaviour has landed us in trouble and impacted our bookings."

He added that the Liger star should have learnt his lesson from Aamir Khan, Akshay Kumar and Taapse, whose Laal Singh Chaddha, Raksha Bandhan and Dobaara, too became the victim of the Boycott Bollywood hashtag trend. He said, "Mr Vijay, it seems, you have become arrogant. If the audience will not watch the film, see what Taapsee Pannu, Aamir Khan and Akshay Kumar are going through. One should pay heed to hashtags." Liger is a sports drama, written and directed by Puri Jagannadh.Vijay Deverakonda and Ananya Panday's much-hyped Liger, which hit screens a few days ago, has failed to meet the expectations of the fans.
