South Indian actor Vijay Deverakonda and her co-star Ananya Panday left midway from their promotional event at a mall in Navi Mumbai after they faced a massive turnout that got "uncontrollable".
On July 31, team 'Liger' arrived at the Mumbai mall which was bursting at its seams with an army of eager fans jostling for space. When Deverakonda took to the stage, the excitement among his fans hit the roof.
The young heartthrob experienced the craze he inspires, especially amongst his female fans, which were holding posters and sketches of the 'Arjun Reddy' actor and the crowd started chanting 'We love you' at the event.
Meanwhile, Deverakonda tried his best to control the excitement of the fans and was seen saying "Hum idhar hi hain..thoda araam se.. [I am here only, calm down a bit]" to the crowd but the situation went out of hand.
The makers of Liger and Deverakonda after the incident shared concerning messages for the fans who attended the event on their social media handles.
Helmed by Puri Jagannadh 'Liger' is a sports action film which is slated to release on August 25, 2022, in Hindi, Tamil, Telugu, Kannada and Malayalam, after getting multiple delays due to COVID-19, and the makers are currently promoting their film with full swing.
Dharma Productions recently unveiled the trailer and two songs from the film which gathered positive feedback from the audience. The film marks Deverakonda's debut in Bollywood and the 'Khaali Peeli' actor's first multi-lingual film.
Apart from 'Liger', Pandey will be also seen in 'Kho Gaye Hum Kahan' along with Siddhant Chaturvedi and Gourav Adarsh. Deverakonda, on the other hand, will be also seen in a multi-lingual film 'Khushi' alongside Samantha Ruth Prabhu, which is slated to release on December 23, 2022.
