Two weeks before we reported that Shahid Kapoor's next film will be directed by Raja Krishna Menon (Airlift fame). According to the recent reports, Shahid will be seen playing a boxer and it will be a sports drama.

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.”
