Rakeysh opened up about the forthcoming project and said, “I am most excited for the film. I can’t talk much because we haven’t even started shooting. We are planning to go on the floors by the end of the year. Both Farhan and I are getting to work with each other after six years. We have always been bouncing ideas off each other.”

“Anjum Rajabali has written this very endearing love story of a boxer, it’s not a real-life figure but a fictitious character. What I liked the most about it (the story) was that it has a new voice. It’s set among the lower middle class. Boxing is not a rich man’s sport, anywhere in the world,” he further added.

Meanwhile, Farhan is also gearing up for his upcoming film with Priyanka Chopra titled The Sky is Pink. The two will be seen together after the 2015 release Dil Dhadhakne Do. The flick will also feature Zaira Wasim of Dangal and Secret Superstar fame.
