Vijay Deverakonda and Puri Jagannadh

The aftermath of Liger's failure continues as exhibitors and distributors demand refunds from Puri Jagannadh and the producers. Despite a year of requests for compensation for their losses, no refund has been made. As the team behind the film faces mounting pressure, distributors and exhibitors took to the streets in Hyderabad to hold a protest, urging the filmmakers to reimburse them. 

Reports state that the protest was held at the Film Chamber and included calls for compensation from both Puri Jagannadh and Vijay Deverakonda. The director had previously promised to pay back the losses within six months, but it appears that no progress has been made towards this goal. Meanwhile, Vijay Deverakonda and his fans eagerly anticipate the release of his upcoming film, Kushi.

After facing backlash for the failure of Liger at the box office, Vijay Deverakonda is all set to make a comeback with his upcoming romantic drama Kushi, co-starring Samantha Ruth Prabhu. While the makers of Liger are facing trouble with distributors demanding a refund, the film also got embroiled in a money laundering case, with the actor being questioned by the Enforcement Directorate. With Kushi's release slated for September 1, 2023, fans are eagerly awaiting the chemistry between Vijay and Samantha, and the buzz around the film is already high. Directed by Shiva Nirvana, Kushi is set to release in multiple languages.

On the work front, Puri Jagannadh, the director of the recently failed film "Liger," has announced his next project. He will be teaming up with Ram Pothineni for the sequel to the blockbuster 2019 film "Ismart Shankar," titled "Double Ismart."

BrhannadaArmour @BrhannadaArmour 4 months ago You wrote "demanding to incur losses" = wanting to spend more than the revenue. You probably meant "demanding to recoup losses" = wanting to take back money from a bad investment.
