Vijay Deverakonda and Ananya Pandey starrer ‘Liger’ was released in theaters on 25 August. It was also widely promoted. The actor was also seen at the stadium during the Asia Cup 2022. Not only this, he was also seen wearing thongs in many parts and was in the headlines. But all this was to no avail. As a result, the director of the film, Puri Jagannath, decided to compensate the distributors for the loss.

Vijay Deverakonda left salary for next film
But now as the film flopped badly at the box office and to reduce the burden of loss, Vijay Deverakonda has decided to return the amount of more than 6 crores to the producers. He took 35 crores as a fee for this film. Now he will return more than 6 crores out of it. According to media reports, Vijay is currently working on ‘Jana Gana Mana’, which will also release pan India. A high budget was made for this too, but now the makers have reduced it. Because both Puri Jagannath and Vijay Deverakonda have also given up their fees for this movie. Yes they are working for free.
