Talk Of The Town: Vijay Deverakonda’s HUGE fees for Liger

Mumbai: Vijay Deverakonda and Ananya Panday’s much-awaited and highly anticipated movie ‘Liger’ got released on Thursday, August 25. The Hindi version made its ways to the screens on Friday. Breaking the hopes of millions, it seems like the actioner failed to meet the audience’s expectations. The Puri Jagannadh’s directorial was promoted extensively across the country and despite this hype, the movie left fans disappointed who termed it as ‘disaster’ and ‘flop’.
