With 700 days of vigorous training, Mukkabaaz actor Vineet Kumar Singh had suffered more than 20 injuries. The actor was flexing his muscles for Anurag Kashyap’s forthcoming movie Mukkabaaz and got trained like a professional boxer.
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.
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."
"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.”
Mukkabaaz is all 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).
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.
