The Spirit of Mukkabaaz- Blood, Sweat & Vineet Singh!



The Spirit of Mukkabaaz- Blood, Sweat & Vineet Singh!

More than 700 days of training, 20 injuries, 2000 kms of travel and countless punches – Vineet Kumar Singh, the lead protagonist of Anurag Kashyap’s forthcoming movie, Mukkabaaz, got trained like a REAL professional boxer to pull off his role in the love story, which is produced by Aanand L Rai’s Colour Yellow Productions.

Mukkabaaz talks about an aspiring boxer, Shravan (Vinit) who slogs day and night to achieve his dream of being a recognised boxer. Things go awry when he falls in love with a high caste, mute girl who happens to be the niece of his arch nemesis, the head of the state boxing federation, Bhagwandas Mishra (Jimmy).

A look at Vineet’s training video and it’s unlikely that you will fail to be completely and utterly stunned by the bone-crunching, muscle-wrenching physicality of the role that Vineet had gone through.

From lifting tyres and weights, runs, gruelling workouts and, of course, boxing like a pro, Vineet had undergone all that a professional boxer would do to resemble and punch like a boxer on screen.

While most boxers quit boxing by the age of 35, Vineet got into the garb of a boxer by actually getting into the rigorous training mode of a boxer, much to the surprise of Anurag Kashyap.

Anurag Kashyap says, “I told Vineet that Mukkabaaz will be possible only if he is ready to get trained like a professional boxer. The same night he packed everything left for Punjab to become a boxer and came back after a year.” 

To this, Anurag adds, “During his initial days of training, there was no acceptance for Vineet as they felt that he is an actor and he is doing all this for a role. But gradually they accepted him and made him part of their group. Mukkabaaz was possible only because of his sheer dedication and perseverance.”

Presented by Eros International & Aanand L Rai and produced by Colour Yellow in association with Phantom Films, Mukkabaaz directed by Anurag Kashyap also features Zoya Hussain, Jimmy Shergill and Ravi Kishan.
