Vikram Singh, the anti-hero from Sajid Nadiadwala’s Heropanti, who has been nicknamed ‘desi Stallone’ by director Sabbir Khan for his resemblance to Hollywood action star Sylvester Stallone, will be next seen in a film based on boxing, just like his idol Stallone, who had played a boxer in the Rocky series.

Sources claim that Singh has been approached by a well-known filmmaker to star in a film based on boxing. Vikram Singh, who has actually trained in boxing for an year in New Zealand, says, “I am a big fan of Stallone, who I feel is the greatest action star in Hollywood. When I was approached for the film, I gave my nod without a moment’s hesitation as I am sure that being a trained boxer, I would be able to justify this role.”

Though Singh refused to divulge details about the filmmaker and the film, he did add, “The film will be completely based on boxing. We are still having discussions about how to go forward, but I am quite excited about this venture and hope it goes on floors soon.” Vikram, who has worked as a villain in many films down South opposite superstars like Mahesh Babu, is currently shooting for his first Kannada film starring South superstar Puneeth Rajkumar. Singh has been offered a few Punjabi films and the actor is seriously considering the offers.

 

In the past, actor Sunny Deol had played a boxer in ‘Apne’ and Priyanka Chopra will be seen playing a boxer in the upcoming biopic on Mary Kom.
