Looks like the Aadhi Bhagavan actor is pulling out all the stops for his next film

Jayam Ravi, who plays a boxer named Boologam in the film of the same name, has apparently undergone some rigorous training with professionals for the role.

What’s more, we’ve got a first look into the film and it seems like he’s coming up with a full energy performance in these scenes in which he looks to be in the throes of religious fervour.

The movie directed by N Kalyanakrishnan stars Trisha opposite Ravi. Amala Paul was earlier considered for the role but couldn’t do it because of date problems. Prakash Raj is also playing a crucial role in Boologam.

Take a look at these stills.
