Boxing legend Mike Tyson will feature in Dharma Productions' much-anticipated film 'Liger' starring Vijay Deverakonda and Ananya Panday in lead roles.
'Liger' has been hogging the limelight ever since its inception but due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the makers of the movie held its shoot.
In the latest development, the production house announced on their official Twitter handle that their much-awaited film will also feature boxing legend Mike Tyson. The news comes a day before the film's director Puri Jagannadh's birthday.
Sharing a video, introducing the master of the ring, the production house tweeted, "Introducing the master of the ring to the Indian screens! Kicked to announce that the dynamite @MikeTyson has joined the cast of #Liger! #NamasteTyson #HbdPuriJagannadh."
The professional boxer, who hogged worldwide headlines when he became the youngest ever heavyweight champion in boxing history in 1986 at the age of 20, is widely considered one of the greatest heavyweight fighters of all time.
The news has hyped up the already excited fans who can no more wait to watch the movie.
