Ram Gopal Varma has spoken out about what led to the failure of Vijay Deverakonda-starrer Liger, which marked the actor’s pan-India debut. Unlike recent South films including RRR, Pushpa and KGF: Chapter 2, Liger failed to impress the audience and RGV believes that it’s because Vijay Deverakonda’s attitude.
According to ETimes, RGV, in an interview with a news channel, said that Vijay is a “naturally aggressive” person who loves to grab attention. RGV pointed out that unlike Vijay, South stars like Prabhas, Jr NTR, Ram Charan and Yash are loved by the audiences because of their down-to-earth nature and humility. According to ETimes, the director claimed in the interview that Vijay’s aggressive speeches during the promotions of Liger might have not gone down well the audience. It could also be the reason behind the boycott Liger movement, said RGV.
