For the first time, former world heavyweight boxing champion Mike Tyon is going to act with Vijay Deverakonda in the movie, Liger. Karan Johar, the producer of the film tweeted, “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.”

Vijay Deverakonda said that, “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.”
