Tyson finished dubbing for the film earlier this month. His acting scenes were filmed in the United States. ‘Liger’ has been hogging the spotlight since its inception, but due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the film’s production was halted. The film was supposed to be released in theatres worldwide on September 9 of last year, but it was pushed back due to the rising COVID-19 cases at the time.
Puri Jagannadh will direct the film, which will star Ramya Krishnan, Ronit Roy, and Vishu Reddy, among others. Charmme Kaur and the director’s production company Puri Connects co-produced it. The film will now be released in five languages, including Hindi, Telugu, Tamil, Kannada, and Malayalam, on August 25, 2022.
