Due to the current Covid-19 situation in India, the makers including Karan Johar deemed it fit that the teaser is unveiled on a later date. The team issued a statement to announce the news. “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 us all,” the statement read.

Karan Johar’s Dharma Productions, Vijay Deverakonda, director Puri Jagannadh and the team urged people to stay back at home, and stay safe. “Sit tight and until then we request all of you to stay safe, take care of all your dear ones, help each other and get vaccinated at the earliest.

Take all the precautionary measures as prescribed by the medical fraternity and be sure that – we are all in this together. See you soon at the theatres when we are healthy and strong as a country,” the statement read further. The film also stars Ananya Pandey in a pivotal role.

The makers have earlier revealed that fans of Vijay Deverakonda will get to see him in a very different avatar in Liger. The first poster of the movie was unveiled in January this year. The film is slated to hit the theatres on September 9. The Pan-India fill will release in five languages — Hindi, Telugu, Tamil, Kannada and Malayalam.
