A track from Vijay Deverakonda‘s upcoming movie Liger was released on Monday, coinciding with the Telugu star’s 33rd birthday. “When you have to fight for survival from a very young age. You learn to Hunt!,” tweeted Deverakonda, while sharing The Liger Hunt Theme.
The video of The Liger Hunt Theme is a training montage. We see our hard-working hero, from one of the poorest of neighbourhoods, rising through the ranks and challenging fighters on the world stage. There is also a little glimpse of Deverakonda flaunting his sculpted abs, training and itching for a fight in the lyrical video.
The Vikram Montrose composition is written by Bhaskarabhatla Ravikumar and crooned by Hemachandra.
Liger is Vijay Deverakonda’s first “pan-India” movie. The film, shot in Telugu and Hindi, is written and directed by Puri Jagannadh. Earlier, the makers had released the film’s teaser, revealing the basic premise of the film.
