Mukkabaaz actor Vineet Kumar Singh wants to support struggling boxers in India
Vineet Kumar Singh plays the role of a boxer in Anurag Kashyap’s next, Mukkabaaz
Actor Vineet Kumar Singh, who is playing a struggling boxer in filmmaker Anurag Kashyap’s forthcoming movie Mukkabaaz, says he wants to help real life boxers who are struggling in India.
Asked if knowing the sport closely brought any changes in his mind, Vineet told a reporter: “Of course, I would love to contribute something to them. In the ‘akhada’ (wrestling arena), where I used to practise, I saw so many boxers.”
“Some, who are struggling even though they are champions, and some are forced to retire, some are the victim of politics. I also made friends with them. So I want to help them with my limited capability so that awareness can be created.” In the film, the actor fought with some of the real boxers and that made him think like a boxer. “In the film, there was no action choreography and I fought against some of the boxing champions like Neeraj Goyat, Deepak Tanwar and Sandeep Yadav. So yes, I want our country to have more such champions, and as an actor and sports enthusiast, I want to support these kind of sports individuals who have always been ignored,” he said.
Presented by Eros International and Aanand L Rai and produced by Colour Yellow in association with Phantom Films, Mukkabaaz directed by Anurag Kashyap also features Zoya Hussain, Jimmy Shergill and Ravi Kishan.

Synopsis: Despite being the most populated state in India, Uttar Pradesh doesn’t see a lot of upcoming sportsmen — one questions why that is. In the city of Bareilly, in Uttar Pradesh, aspiring boxer Shravan slogs day and night to achieve his dream of being a recognised boxer. Things go awry when he falls in love with a high caste, mute girl who happens to be the niece of his arch nemesis, the head of the state boxing federation, Bhagwandas Mishra. To marry his love, he needs a job and for him, the path to a stable government job is through boxing. But what Shravan doesn’t expect is that in India, boxing is about everything else but the sport.
