Trailer: Anurag Kashyap is back with socio-political drama MUKKABAAZ

Anurag Kashyap is among India’s finest filmmakers

Mumbai: Actor Vineet Kumar Singh, who is playing the protagonist in Anurag Kashyap's "Mukkabaaz", says he went through an extensive year-long boxing training in Punjab as part of the preparation to play a boxer in the movie.

"We have more sports movies than medals".

Because it set in Uttar Pradesh, the dialect and diction that everyone and Shergill in particular seem to have mastered, make the scenes memorable. In population, we are second after China, but in the medal tally we always lag behind. "Why can't we produce sportsmen?" said Kashyap. Through the film, I am showing the real condition of the sport of boxing and the social background of the players.

Anurag Kashyap adds, "Mukkabaaz is a beautiful love story of a boxer and deals with social and political elements". We go insane. A small medal is celebrated so much that the person who won that doesn't even qualify the next time.

Najam Sethi-Chairman PCB is hopeful that the third edition of Pakistan Super League would reach new altitudes of success. A total of 34 matches will be played in the upcoming season of the tournament in contrast to last seasons' 24 games.

"We get a little something and burst into celebrations". A small medal is celebrated so much that the person who won that doesn't even qualify the next time. The film comes from that irony.

Featuring Vineet Kumar Singh and Jimmy Shergill, Mukkabaaz will be released on 12 January 2018. Mukkabaaz had its premiere at MAMI recently, where it received praise. "So, the various layers of the narration are basically revolving around that", said Kashyap, known for films like Black Friday (2007), Gangs of Wassepur (2012) and Ugly (2014). "So we chose to do both films", said Kashyap. The film looks at how in sports we have to deal with things which are not connected to it. "There are people from the lower caste holding higher positions in administration and, years after, take revenge on the higher caste people who once discriminated against them". "The irony exists only in our country and then we expect medals".

When asked if the essence of sports films often gets overshadowed by patriotism, the director said that nationalism has actually become a formula now for Bollywood and the country. So the casteism that you see in the film is as real as it looks.
