Talking about films being made on the sports personalities, Farhan shares, “We, in our history have had some amazing sports heroes and if their stories can be shared which they should be then, of course, you celebrate the career of that person and there’s a lot to learn from it. There’s a lot of drama in sports and when you see a person’s career, there are always ups and downs at times. There would be a lot of struggle from where they have come so there’s a lot to learn, especially for kids and they have a lot of positive messages that can be taken from such films.”

Farhan is gearing hard for the film. He has been training very hard to transform his body into a boxer’s for which he has been undergoing rigorous training and is not skipping any session as the role demands a certain kind of physique.
