Just a couple of days ago, we saw Vijay Deverakonda and Ananya Panday travelling by Mumbai local train to attend the audio launch of a Liger song. Continuing with their city promotions, the duo reached a mall in Navi Mumbai to meet fans. However, their visit was a short-lived one as the situation soon reached out of hand with fans even fainting on the spot.
As per Etimes report, a source informed about the situation saying, “The moment Vijay took to the stage, there were sounds of swooning all round. The organisers and volunteers were shocked to see that a few female fans fainted and a few other girls started crying. Loads of fans had posters and sketches of Vijay and then the chants of ‘Vijay we love you’ started.” If these reports are to be believed, the fan frenzy eventually led to a stampede like situation. The security was keen on avoiding any kind of chaos which then forced them to cancel the rest of the event.
Followed by the end of the event, Vijay took to Instagram to share a story which he addressed to fans in Mumbai saying, “Your love has touched me <3 Hope you all are safe and back home. Wish I could have been there with you all so much longer. Thinking about you all as I go to bed. Goodnight Mumbai” It was followed by a hug and heart emoji as he waved off, signing it as ‘#Liger’.
Liger marks the debut of Vijay Deverakonda in Bollywood. Besides him and Ananya Pandya, the Dharma Production film will also have American boxing legend Mike Tyson in a pivotal role. Directed by popular South filmmaker Puri Jagannadh, the film is slated to release on August 25 in Hindi, Tamil, Telugu, Kannada, and Malayalam.
