The movie is all about boxing but with a love story as well.

Today at the trailer launch, Anurag was asked by Ravi Kishan who plays a boxing coach in the movie about how did he come up with such an amazing cast and why did he choose Vineet Kumar Singh as the lead.

 

To this, the director replied:

“Vineet was the one who came with this script to me. When I read the script I loved it. But then I told him to become a boxer and then come back with the script. He left immediately, trained and came back after a year to me with the same script. I loved his dedication and hard work and that is what made me choose him for this role.”

 

When a journalist asked Anurag whether sports play an important role, to this he said:

“My father was a coach but we as children couldn’t even think about it as a career option. I have shown the reality that happens in sports in the movie.”
