Vijay Deverakonda in a few months' time will be facing the biggest test of his career, a pan-Indian film, Liger, that'll release across five languages - Hindi, Telugu, Tamil, Kannada and Malayalam. The actor's magnum opus, which wrapped its shoot earlier this year, was in the making for over two and a half years. This is his first collaboration with star director Puri Jagannadh and the duo has time and again revealed that they had a blast while working on Liger.

While wishing the film star on his birthday today, Puri Jagannadh shared a heartfelt note on why he is very special to him. Puri added, "I saw the fire in your heart. I saw the fine actor inside you. I know what's running in your mind- your hunger, your madness, your commitment, your humbleness; all these will take you to places. One day you will become the country's pride. I call you now THE VIJAY DEVERAKONDA.. Happy Birthday." The filmmaker also shared an image of him and Vijay on the sets of Liger.

Liger is currently finishing its post-producton formalities at a brisk pace. Ananya Panday plays the female lead in the boxing drama that also features Mike Tyson in his first-ever Indian film. Ramya Krishnan, Ronit Roy, Vishu Reddy, Ali, Makarand Desh Pandey and Getup Srinu essay crucial roles in the film as well. Commemorating Vijay Deverakonda's birthday today, Liger team wll be sharing a theme song from the film titled Liger Hunt Theme. 

Puri Jagannadh, Charmme Kaur, Karan Johar and Apoorva Mehta together are bankrolling the film under Puri connects and Dharma Productions. Vishnu Sarma is the cinematographer of the film while Kecha is the stunt director. The film's first glimpse was released for the New Year. Liger hits theatres on August 25.
