The highpoint of the trailer is not only Vijay’s ripped avatar and action sequences, but also Ramya’s onscreen presence, which reminds us of his Baahubali days and the background music adding to the vibe of the film.
Vijay plays an MMA fighter in the film and the trailer features several fight scenes featuring the actor. But when he struggles with his speech, he is looked down upon only to roar when it is needed most. Ananya plays his love interest, who doesn’t shy away from standing up for him in crucial times. Mike Tyson also makes a notable cameo as he throws a challenge into Victory’s lager. There is also a glimpse of how Liger represents his country in MMA fights.
Before the trailer, the first song of Leger, Akdi Pakki was released. In this, Vijay and Ananya are ruling the dance floor with their moves. He is seen performing ‘Ligger Step’ in the music video with several background dancers. Composed by Lijo George, DJ Chetas and Sunil Kashyap, with lyrics by Mohsin Shaikh and Azim Dayani, Akdi Pakdi is sung by Dev Negi, Pavani Pandey and Lijo George.
Ligar not only marks Vijay’s debut in Hindi cinema, it also marks Ananya’s first multilingual film. Earlier this month, a new poster was released in which Vijay was wearing nothing, and was holding a bouquet of red roses. The words ‘Sala Crossbreed’ were written on it. Directed by Puri Jagannadh and produced by Karan Johar, Ligar is all set to hit the theaters on August 26, 2022. It will release in Hindi, Tamil, Telugu, Kannada and Malayalam.
