Tollywood superstar fails to make Bollywood debut: Many South stars have tried to establish their presence in Bollywood. But not everyone’s luck shines in Hindi cinema. Last year, something similar happened to Southern Star. Initially, the release date of the actor’s film was repeatedly postponed, but when the film hit the theaters, even its price could not be met. We are talking about Vijay Devrakonda’s film ‘Leagar’.
‘Liger’ flopped at the box office.
Vijay Devrakonda’s Bollywood sports action film ‘Liger’ is releasing in the year 2022. The actor made his debut in Bollywood with this film. It featured Ananya Pandey paired with Vijay Devrakonda. While the film was produced by Karan Johar. But after its release, the film flopped badly at the box office.
The release date of the film was repeatedly postponed.
Vijay Devrakonda has a huge fan following in Tollywood. The success of ‘Arjun Reddy’ in the year 2017 made him an overnight superstar, but his magic did not last in Hindi cinema. In the year 2020, the release of the film ‘Liger’ was postponed several times due to the Covid-19 pandemic. The film was scheduled to release in November 2020. Then its release date was fixed on September 9, 2021, but due to delay in the shooting, the film could not release on the scheduled date. After repeated postponements, ‘Liger’ hits theaters on August 25, 2022.
The film could not even recover its cost
150 crore rupees were spent in the production of Karan Johar’s ‘Liger’ but people did not like its story at all. The film managed to earn only Rs 48.58 crore worldwide. Vijay Devrakonda’s film ‘Leagar’ turned out to be a disaster at the box office, according to a report by Sakanlik. Vijay has not signed any other Hindi film since then.
