Vijay Deverakonda Reveals How Co-Star Mike Tyson ‘Lovingly’ Abused Him In English On ‘Liger’ Sets

South superstar Vijay Deverakonda’s much-awaited Bollywood movie ‘Liger’ is finally here, and the actor made sure he left no stone unturned while promoting the film. But despite all the hype on social media, the Puri Jagannadh film seems to have hit a roadblock on its first day itself. While many hoped ‘Liger’ to end Bollywood’s dry spell at the box office and help Hindi cinema return to its glory, the low turnout on the first day has left many experts stunned. But what has grabbed everyone’s attention is Vijay’s recent comment on his experience of working with legendary boxer Mike Tyson, who has an extended cameo in ‘Liger’.

In a recent conversation with IANS, Vijay said, “He abused me a lot, albeit lovingly, in English and I can’t even repeat what he said to me. But yes, I had a good time with him.” Talking about Tyson’s love for India, the ‘Arjun Reddy’ star continued, “He loves India a lot for its food, music and people. In fact, he used to ask us to bring Indian food for him which he enjoyed a lot. But yes, he is scared of the crowd here.”

Earlier in another interaction, Vijay had revealed getting accidentally punched by Tyson on the sets of ‘Liger’. “When he punched me by mistake during rehearsals, I had migraine for the whole day. I didn’t get knocked out, but my body wanted to fall down,” he had said.

‘Liger’ helmed by Puri Jagannadh has finally arrived in theatres, and it also stars Ananya Panday, Ramya Krishna and Ronit Roy in pivotal roles.
