So far, the hype is good as the film's trailer, songs, and promotional activities have created quite a buzz surrounding the film. Going by the trailer, the storyline of Liger revolves around the titular character portrayed by Vijay Deverakonda with a stutter and also hints that the film is imbued with emotions, romance, and action. The film also stars American boxing legend, Mike Tyson, in an extended cameo appearance thus making his acting debut in Indian cinema.

Liger is written and directed by Puri Jagannadh and bankrolled by Karan Johar under the banner of Dharma Productions and by Puri Jagannadh and Charmme Kaur under the banner of Puri Connects.The songs are composed by Tanishk Bagchi and Vikram Montrose. Five songs from the film titled 'The Liger Hunt Theme', 'Akdi Pakdi', 'Waat Laga Denge', 'Aafat', and 'Coka 2.0' have been released and were received wonderfully by the audience.
