Mumbai: Legendary boxer and former heavyweight champion Mike Tyson will make his Indian film debut with the Vijay Deverakonda-starrer Liger produced by Dharma Productions. The film with boxing on the backdrop also features Ananya Panday opposite Deverakonda.
Incidentally, Tyson had a brief relationship with Bollywood before Liger, when he made a blink and miss appearance in a promotional video for Fool N Final in 2007.
