Vijay reportedly plays a kickboxer in ‘Liger’. He underwent a solid physical transformation for the film and even went to Thailand to train in martial arts. Sharing the poster, he has written,
Humbly announcing our arrival Pan India! Someone with my background shouldn’t have reached anywhere near here according to the conventions & set Norms. But with sheer madness, passion, hardwork, Here we are! Nation wide madness Guaranteed.
