[19:59, 01/10/2021] Meth 2: Former world heavyweight boxing champion Mike Tyson has been roped in for Vijay Deverakonda’s Liger.

Bollywood filmmaker Karan Johar, who is bankrolling the project, also confirmed the same on his Twitter handle on Monday. “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! (sic),” he wrote on his Twitter account.

The source said Tyson will make a cameo appearance in the climax portions of the Telugu film.

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

Vijay was also quite upbeat about sharing the screen space with the boxing legend. “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’s team is currently canning high-octane action sequences in Goa under the supervision of stunt choreographer Kecha.

The movie also stars Ananya Paday, Ramya Krishnan, Ronit Roy, Vishu Reddy, Ali, Makarand Deshpande and Getup Srinu.
