News agency ANI quoted Vijay speaking about Liger on Monday: “With Liger, we expected a little drama … but we will fight. We put our hearts into making this film. And I believe I am right. I feel there is there is no room for fear, when I had nothing I was not afraid, and now that I have achieved something I think that even now there need be no fear Maa ka aashirwaad hai, Logon ka pyaar hai, Bhagwaan ka hath hai, andar aag hai, Kaun rookge dekh lenge (We have mother’s blessing, love of people, God’s support, a fire in us, we’ll see who will stop us)!”

Of his struggles, Vijay said: “I believe that life has taught me to be a fighter. When I was younger I had to fight for respect and money… later I had to fight for my place in the industry and even for work. Every movie was like an uphill battle for me When I made my first movie we couldn’t find a producer to fund it so I did the movie for free we had to raise money to cover the production costs At that point I was nobody in the film industry When my third movie Arjun Reddy was about to come out we faced protests before it hit theaters But it turned out to be a hit at the box office and now people know me because of my work in the movie.”

Liger, a sports drama, is slated for a theatrical release on August 25. The film marks Vijay’s debut in Hindi cinema and Ananya’s first multilingual film. The film will be released in Hindi, Telugu, Tamil, Kannada and Malayalam. It is produced by Jagannadh, Charmme Kaur, Karan Johar and Apoorva Mehta.
