Vijay Deverakonda has been busy promoting his upcoming film Liger, but it's the actor's choice of footwear that has people talking. The Arjun Reddy actor revealed the reason for his decision, stating that it makes his life easier. “I know it's a hit (Liger). I dress in a variety of outfits. If you're in a bad mood, this is the place to be (I wear whatever I feel like). See, I have 30 days to promote the film, and then I have to look for shoes and clothes every day, which will take forever. So, I bought a great chappal that is making my life easier... I just do what I want.”

Vijay Deverakonda, further, went to Gujarat to promote the film, where he has a large fan base, and a swarm of fans gathered to catch a glimpse of the actor, as evidenced by the now viral photos and videos. Ananya Panday co-stars with the Telugu actor in Liger.

Puri Jagannadh directs and co-produces the film through his company Puri Connects. When asked if he is glad his poster did not land him in trouble like Bollywood star Ranveer Singh, Vijay said, “I don't care if there is or isn't hullabaloo. I'm not bothered.”

Vijay will make his Bollywood debut with Liger, which is produced by Karan Johar's Dharma Productions. The movie runtime stands at 2 hours 20 minutes, with the first half being 1 hour 15 minutes and the second one being 1 hour 5 minutes. There are seven fights and six songs in the movie, sources in the production house said.

The actor's realistic performance, coupled with fantastic action and dance is said to be the highlights of Liger. How Vijay Deverakonda transforms into the Liger character and bulks his body to excel in the game scenes are the other talking points, as well.

Hearsay is that the censor board members felt Ramya Krishnan's character, the mother sentiment, and Vijay Deverakonda-Ananya Panday's love track has worked big time.

Liger, also featuring the boxing legend Mike Tyson, will release in theatres on August 25.
