Actor Vijay Deverakonda is set to make his Bollywood debut with the upcoming film Liger. He took to social media to react to rumours of an OTT release and tweeted, "Too little. I’ll do more in the theaters." Deverakonda gained wide appeal after the release of his film Arjun Reddy in 2017.

The picture shared by Deverakonda claimed, "Vijay Deverakonda & Puri Jagannadh's 'Liger' received a huge OTT offer of Rs. 200 cr for its direct digital release and the satellite rights in all languages. Makers are considering the offer."


While the reports of Liger's OTT release are still mere speculation, Deverakonda's reaction to the news went viral for its cheeky tone.

Liger, directed by Puri Jagannadh, is being produced by Karan Johar's Dharma Productions and Puri Connects. The makers had earlier announced that the film's teaser would be delayed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

In a joint statement, the producers said, "In light of the current environment and the testing times our country is facing, our focus is solely on helping the community. Therefore, we have decided to postpone the release of the teaser of #LIGER. ”

"Having said that, we assure and guarantee that you will witness Vijay Deverakonda in a never seen before avatar and you will not be disappointed," the statement further read.

Liger also stars Ananya Pandey, Ramya Krishnan, Ronit Roy, Makarand Deshpande, and Getup Srinu. The film has been shot in Telugu and Hindi, and will also release Tamil, Kannada, and Malayalam.
