In the deleted scene, Arjun is seen talking to his friend Shiva about the rude demeanour of Preethi’s father.

Despite being heavily criticised for promoting sexism and toxic masculinity, Arjun Reddy emerged as a roaring box office success. The film was directed by Sandeep Reddy Vanga. Apart from Vijay, aShalini Pandey, Rahul Ramakrishna, Sanjay Swaroop and many others starred in the Telugu romantic drama. After its mammoth success, Arjun Reddy was remade in Hindi under the title of Kabir Singh with Shahid Kapoor in the titular role.
After entertaining the audience in Arjun Reddy, Vijay Deverakonda made his debut in the Hindi film industry with the newly released film Liger. Liger has received majorly negative reviews from the masses. Film critics lambasted it for its poor screenplay and over-the-top performances. The direction by Puri Jagannadh was also reprehended by viewers and critics alike.
