“Boxing was, absolutely, an alien sport to me. My training first began with Drew Neal who came in as my first boxing coach. Everyone has a natural fighting style. So, it was important for Drew, to first, understand that in me,” he said. “Roughly about 5-6 months were spent learning the ABCs, all techniques, physically preparing myself. We didn’t train for film, we trained to be a boxer,” he added. Toofaan Director Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra Feels People Across the World Will Identify With Farhan Akhtar’s Boxing Movie.
