Mumbai: Anurag Kashyap’s film ‘Mukkabaaz’ is hitting theatres across India today. The film featured Ravi Kishan, who is playing the key role of boxing coach (Sanjay Kumar) of Vineet Kumar Singh (lead actor).

Speaking about his role in Mukkabaaz with Free Press Journal, he said, “I’m playing the role of boxing coach, who once had a dream of becoming a boxing champion. My character has a very small role, but it’s a very important role. I wanted to play, but people did not allow me to do that. And then, he put all his effort and energy into making Vineet a boxing star.”

He added, “I found it very difficult to play a boxing coach. My role needed complete focus and concentration. Basically, I even grew a real moustache for the role of Sanjay Kumar.”

Ravi also revealed, “Me and my team, Kashyapji all were working in 50 degree, and we have done lots of hard work for Mukkabaaz. We also enjoyed the entire work.”

Ravi Kishan, who has acted in more than 500 films including Hindi, Bhojpuri, Telugu and other, said, “In Bollywood there are good writers, having big budgets, and in Bhojpuri we have small budgets. But, I’m sure one day I will make a big budget film in Bhojpuri and it would be like Kashyap’s and other super hit films.”

Kishan also expressed gratitude towards fans who came to watch his movies with family and friends. “Thank You,” he said.

‘Mukkabaaz’ revolves around the struggles of a boxer from a lower-caste and gives a peek into cow vigilantism. The film also stars Vineet Kumar Singh, Jimmy Sheirgill and Zoya Hussain.
