Shahid Kapoor will be working on back to back schedules of his upcoming films, one of which will be Raja Krishna Menon’s next, where Kapoor will be playing a boxer. He will reportedly be trained by a professional boxer for the same, which the makers are on the hunt for.

Mirror reports a source saying, “Shahid will begin the prep for Raja’s film simultaneously with the prep for his other film, the Hindi remake of Arjun Reddy helmed by Sandeep Reddy Vanga. Both films require him to look lean and train in action. Raja’s team is currently on the lookout for a professional boxer who will train Shahid for the part. They are also looking for an actress to play his leading lady.”

Kapoor is currently filming for ‘Batti Gul Meter Chalu’ with Shraddha Kapoor.
