Actress Ritika Singh of Irudhi Suttru fame will be seen playing a sports journalist in her upcoming film ‘Boxer’ starring Arun Vijay in the lead. Produced by V Mathiyalagan’s Etcetera Entertainment, Bala’s erstwhile associate Vivek is directing the film and London based cinematographer Markus A Ljungberg will be cranking the camera.
Talking about the film, Arun Vijay said: “Boxer will be a film to showcase my daily routine workout skills and the result I gained from it. Though I developed six pack abs for Thadaiyara Thakka, my director didn’t allow me to show it on screen as the script didn’t demand it”.
Besides the local boxing championship tournaments, Arun Vijay’s Boxer will also capture the international boxing game. For the film, Arun Vijay trained in Malaysia and Vietnam under experts with the help of stunt choreographer Peter Hein.
