Director Puri talks about the failure of Vijay Deverakondas Liger

Telugu superstar Vijay Deverakonda made his Bollywood debut with the action flick 'Liger' and although there was a significant marketing campaign for the film, it fell flat on the box office. 'Liger' also starred Ananya Pandey and even Mike Tyson himself but apparently none of that was enough to being audience to theatres. In a recent media interaction, director Jagannath Puri addressed the failure of this project and stated that although he had a great time working on it, he'd like to focus on his next work now.

Puri told ETimes, "I worked on ‘Liger’ for three years and I enjoyed doing that film with actors and building beautiful sets, I shot with Mike Tyson. But, it failed. But for that, we can’t cry over it for the next three years. If I look back, the days I was happier are more than the days I was sad.”

He continued, "Success brings a lot of energy and all that energy goes away with failure. In success, we feel like a genius and in failure, we feel like a fool. Those who believed in us when the films worked, will also turn on us when films flop.”

Sharing how important it is to move on after a failure, Puri said, "We get a lot of pressure. We need strength to face all those things. We need a healing period when we are injured but I believe that the healing period should be short. We might lose people, and wealth or wars might happen, the healing period should not be more than 1 month. We should move on to the next thing.”
