Sooraj Pancholi who made his debut with the film Hero alongside Athiya Shetty has 2 films lined up and has signed yet another film. Sooraj will be seen in a biopic based on boxing. The actor is tight-lipped about which boxer the film will be based on.
Talking about the film, Sooraj Pancholi said to leading daily, "It's a biopic on a sports legend which can only be played by someone who's in his 20s or his early 30s; he cannot be much older than that. I actually auditioned for this role."
He added, "I sent a couple of reels to them and I begged for them to let me take on this film because I was a huge fan of this script. I've always wanted to do a biopic, especially on sports and this is a film about boxing. They came to me with this film without knowing that I could box and I think it was just meant to be."
On the work front, Sooraj will be next seen in a Satellite Shankar. The film is directed by Irfan Kamal and is jointly produced by Bhushan Kumar, Murad Khetani, Krishan Kumar and Ashwin Varde. With the film slated to release on September 6, you stay tuned to Box Office India for more updates from the world of Bollywood.
