For filmmakers, breaking the box office record established by the Kannada film is the stuff of dreams. Bollywood’s seasoned directors have begun betting on South celebrities as a result of how South films have begun to perform. The movie Liger, in which Vijay Devarakonda stars, was produced in part by Karan Johar, and it includes a cameo by Mike Tyson, a boxing great. Before its August 26 release, the movie generated a tonne of buzz on social media, but it remains to be seen if it can top KGF: Chapter 2’s enormous box office record.
