Vijay with Shanmukha Priya

Vijay Devarakonda keeps his promise and gives the young singer Shanmukha Priya an opportunity to sing in his upcoming film. The Indian idol fame singer, who is also a fan of VD, was earlier promised by the actor that she would be given a chance in the film. 

Though Shanmukha Priya couldn’t win the reality show, she has now got a great opportunity to kick start her career with the most-anticipated film Liger. The South Indian star had earlier sent a video message to the youngster during the Indian Idol finale, promising her to give her a chance to sing in his movie.

Today, a video has been released by the makers, in which the actor meets his young fan at his home. He also revealed that he had watched all of her performances and has decided on an apt song for her voice. Shanmukha Priya and her mom were given a grand welcome at VD’s home.

Liger, helmed by Puri Jagannadh, will be a romantic sports action movie which is backed by Karan Johar, Charmme Kaur, Apoorva Mehta, Hiroo Yash Johar and Jagannath jointly under the banner of Dharma Productions and Puri Connects. 

The film will release in five languages including Hindi, Telugu, Tamil, Kannada and Malayalam. The movie which marks Vijay’s Hindi debut has Ananya Panday as his co-star. This film would mark Ananya's debut in the Telugu film industry. 

Though the release of the movie was scheduled for September 9, it got pushed further due to the lockdown and the closure of the majority of the theatres in the country. Further updates from the team regarding the release are awaited.
