Liger Box Office and Trolls
One of the most anticipated films, Liger disappointed the audience and it was a huge failure at the box office. Following this, Vijay Deverakonda was brutally trolled. Shutting them, the actor recently said, "It’s common, it’s an everyday thing. Even before I became an actor, aunties, and uncles used to troll about results, college, job, etc. and now it’s social media trolling. Be it anything, trolling is always there."

Also, there were reports that due to the massive loss for the producers, Vijay Deverakonda is returning his fee of Rs 6 crore. The actor will repay the producers a portion of his acting fee worth nearly Rs 6 crores to compensate them for Liger's loss. However, since the actor hasn't stated anything, the claims are not officially confirmed.
Touted as one of the biggest South Indian films, Liger tanked miserably at the box office. The movie also starred Ananya Panday in the lead and was released on August 25.
