Mike Tyson to Star in Hindi, Telugu Film ‘Liger’ With Vijay Deverakonda and Ananya Panday

  • The boxing legend was previously seen in the promotional video of 2007 film “Fool N Final.”

Boxing legend Mike Tyson is set to appear in a multilingual sports action film “Liger,” starring Vijay Deverakonda and Ananya Panday. Karan Johar, who is bankrolling the Telugu and Hindi film, confirmed Tyson’s casting. 

“For the first time ever, the king of the ring will be seen on the big screens of Indian cinema! Welcoming @MikeTyson to the #LIGER team,” tweeted Johar. He shared a one-minute clip to introduce Tyson. “We are proud to announce, for the first time, on Indian screens. The man who created history. Unbeatable icon, one and only legend, the great Mike Tyson, is on board for our prestigious project.”

Devarkonda took to Twitter as well to share his excitement on sharing screen space with Tyson. “We promised you Madness! We are just getting started. For the first time on Indian Screens. Joining our mass spectacle – #LIGER The Baddest Man on the Planet The God of Boxing The Legend, the Beast, the Greatest of all Time! IRON MIKE TYSON (sic),” he tweeted.

“Liger” marks the first collaboration of Devarakonda and director Puri Jagannadh. The film will feature the “Arjun Reddy” actor as an MMA (mixed martial arts) fighter with a stutter.

However, this is not Tyson’s first foray into B-Town. He was seen in the promotional song for Ahmed Khan’s 2007 film “Fool N Final.” Footage of Tyson in the boxing ring, getting out of his car, or punching Deol’s cardboard cut-out can be seen throughout the video.

Tyson most famously played a fictionalized version of himself in the 2009 hit “The Hangover” and its 2011 sequel “The Hangover Part II.” He has also starred in the 2015 film “Ip Man 3.”
