New Delhi: Vijay Deverakonda is not the one to give up. Despite Liger turning out to be a dud at the box office, the actor has managed to keep his spirit high. On Thursday, the South heartthrob travelled to Dubai to watch the much-hyped Asia Cup match between India and Pakistan. As he switched roles to serve as the match’s presenter, the actor chose a white ethnic suit. He also discussed his expectations for the match while promoting his recently released movie Liger.
During the pre-match show, Vijay Deverakonda mentioned Kohli and expressed his desire for him to score at least 50 runs. India defeated Pakistan by 5 wickets as Kohli scored 35 off 34 balls in his historic 100th T20I appearance.
When asked which biopic of an Indian cricketer he would most like to appear in, Vijay Deverakonda responded that since MS Dhoni’s had already been attempted, he would most like to appear in Virat Kohli’s.
When he was asked on whom would you like to make a biopic, he replied, “Dhoni bhai biopic already did by Sushant so I’m interested to do Virat anna biopic”#VijayDeverakonda #Viratkohli #Liger pic.twitter.com/M5y38ULEys

Meanwhile, for his most recent release, Liger, Vijay Deverakonda was able to generate buzz. The actor and Ananya Panday, who played his co-star, toured the nation to promote their movie. The highly anticipated film, though it received mixed reviews from both the general public and critics, failed to impress the audience as a whole. The movie, which was directed by Puri Jagannadh, was released on August 25 in a variety of languages.
Vijay Deverakonda portrays a Kickboxer with a speech impediment in the movie. In Liger, Ananya Panday plays the female lead, and Ramya Krishnan and Ronit Roy both have significant roles. In Liger, Mike Tyson makes a brief appearance. The movie is being co-produced by Karan Johar’s production company Dharma Productions and Puri Connects.
