Sharing the song on her social media profile, actress Ananya Panday captioned it, “The new vibe of the season looks a lot like #AAFAT! Song out now - #LIGER #LigerOnAug25th @ananyapandayy @SijuThuravoor @santoshvenky @Aazad_Varadaraj @deepakmuziblue @HariPriyaSinger @sagar_singer @piyushbhagat30 @DharmaMovies @PuriConnects @sonymusicindia @sonymusicsouth @AAFilmsIndia #ShaziaSamji #AzeemDayani #DivyaRamchandra”
Aafat has been composed by Tanishk Bagchi, written by Rashmi Virag, and sung by Tanishk and Zahrah Khan. The soothing foot-tapping number shows Vijay Deverakonda and Ananya Panday getting romantic amid a picturesque setting of a beach.
The music video also makes for an interesting visual with some crazy camerawork in place as Vijay and Ananya Panday groove on the beach and the rocks, get romantic in a small cave and also get company of some background dancers.
Liger is a sports action starring Vijay as an underdog fighter from Mumbai, who competes in an MMA championship. Ananya plays his girlfriend and Ramya Krishnan plays his mother in the film.
The film also stars Ronit Roy and Ramya Krishna in pivotal roles. American boxer Mike Tyson plays an extended cameo, thus making his acting debut in Indian cinema. The film will release in Hindi, Tamil, Telugu, Kannada, and Malayalam on 25th August 2022.
