Actor Vijay Deverakonda is a force to reckon with. As an outsider with no connections to the film industry, Vijay started his journey as a character actor before making his debut as a leading man in the Telugu film Pelli Choopulu. But it was his 2017 film Arjun Reddy that catapulted him to nationwide fame and superstardom. The actor’s upcoming project Liger promises to further cement his position as one of the country’s most bankable actors. And if the social media buzz around Liger after the trailer launch on Thursday is anything to go by, it looks like the team of the film has a winner on their hands. Videos from the trailer launch events have been going viral on social media.
While gigantic cut-outs of actors during a film’s release are not unusual in India, Vijay Deverakonda fans set up his cut-outs even for the trailer launch and shared glimpses on social media. Did someone say “superstar” yet?
