These days, actor Shahid Kapoor is having some of the best times. His last film, Padmaavat, became a blockbuster hit and he received Dadasaheb Phalke Excellence Award as the best actor for the same. And like his last film, he has few more movies where he will be seen playing challenging roles. Shahid is currently busy with Batti Gul Meter Chalu and after completing this, he will be seen in Raja Krishna Menon’s next. And if insiders are to be believed, the 37-years-old actor will be seen playing a boxer in it. Menon’s upcoming film will be a sports drama and Shahid will undergo a massive change for it.
According to a report in a leading daily, "Shahid is doing a sports-based film with Raja. He wanted to explore that space for quite some time. He plays a boxer who emerges triumphant against all odds in his life."
A source close to the project added, "He needs to have a particular physique to play the character convincingly and learn the techniques of boxing. Someone had approached Shahid with the story. He liked it and since he was already discussing about collaborating with Raja, Sasha asked the filmmaker if he would want to work on it. And the latter started developing it further.”
Shahid and Menon have been planning to collaborate since Udta Punjab released and they are in touch with each other since June 2016.
