Farhan Akhtar To Play A Boxer In His Next With Mohit Suri

Farhan Akhtar has been training quite hard on his physique in the past few months. The actor had given a glimpse of the same recently.


 Farhan had captioned the pic as: "Getting into the zone I want for my next film.. details of what, when and with whom to follow.. #fitness #nopainnogain #staymotivated (sic)."

Finally, the news is out that Farhan is all set to play a boxer in his next film, and that's why he is training so hard on this body.

 Interestingly, the film will be directed by Mohit Suri, whose last directorial Half Girlfriend (2017) didn't do that great at the box-office.

Talking about the plot of the film, it's said that the whole film is about a father-son relationship. The film has boxing as its backdrop and will be set in two time zones. First, Farhan will play the son, and later, he will play father to a young kid.

Mohit confirmed the news to a leading daily and said, “Goldie (Behl) and I approached Farhan recently with my script on a father-son relationship. He really liked it. I need another actor for the role parallel to Farhan, when he plays the son. The story is close to my own relationship with my father, except that the film has boxing as its backdrop. I was eight when my mother passed away, and my father raised me alone. The story is about the struggle he faced as a single dad at 36. Farhan and I spoke about the script, and he thinks it’s brilliant. On June 23, I will go to the US for two weeks and start my next project when I return."

It's said that the basic plot of the film will be inspired from an old Hollywood film, The Champ (1979).
