Vijay Deverakonda is celebrating his birthday today (May 9). The South heartthrob who shot to fame with Arjun Reddy (2017) will be showcasing a different avatar in Puri Jagannadh's pan-India film Liger. The film also stars Ananya Panday in the lead. Today, on the occasion of Vijay's birthday, the makers of Liger were all set to release the teaser of the film. However, due to the ongoing COVID-19 crisis, the team has decided to postpone the teaser release.
Karan Johar's Dharma Productions, in a statement, informed, "During these testing times, we hope you all are staying indoors and taking care of yourself and your loved ones. We were all geared up to reveal a power packed teaser for LIGER on 9th May. However, due to the current scenario and environment that our country is facing, we have decided to postpone the same in the hope to share it with the world at a better time for all of us."
