Mumbai, May 30 -- From the time he found fame, Vijender Singh has expressed his keenness to get into Bollywood. And now, the Olympic medal-winning boxer is set to make his acting debut with an Akshay Kumar production.
Titled Fugly, the movie will be helmed by Kabir Sadanand. Produced by Grazing Goat Pictures (owned by Akshay and Ashvini Yardi), the film is set to go on the floors in August. In all likelihood, it will see Vijender play a tough boxer. He talks to us over the phone from a boxing camp in Haryana.
How did the film come about?
It's been in the pipeline for some time now. I was in touch with Akshay bhai and Kabir. We've now reached a stage where I've signed the film. I hope everything works out.
How do you plan to balance both your careers?
If I've taken a step, I have to manage everything. Muhammad A
