“I think Ranveer Singh and Ranbir Kapoor both will act good in the movie. They can do that because the energy level which is required for a boxer needs to be very high. And the energy level of both the actors, especially Ranveer Singh is so good,” Vijender Singh told Indian Express. (Read: Deepika Padukone finds it silly to compare Ranveer Singh and Ranbir Kapoor)
Ranveer Singh is riding high on the success of ‘Bajirao Mastani’ and has become the first choice of many directors and producers.
When asked which was his favourite boxing movie and which was the one that inspired him the most, Vijender said: “The Rocky series was the most inspiring one and Sylvester Stallone is so good and worked so hard on his fitness. Indian boxing movies like Dharam pajis ‘Apne’ and ‘Boxer’ that Mithunda acted in were also very good and but Rocky was the best one I can say that.”
