Boxer Vijender Singh will be seen making his acting debut in Grazing Goat Productions۪ Fugly۪. The film has already faced controversy with its title song, which offended the gay community as it apparently mocks Section 377. The latest we hear is that Singh۪s wife, Archana, is upset with the lyrics of a song featuring her husband in the video.
When I told her about the song, she was really upset. She clarified with me twice asking is it bad or bed. But I love the song and have started making my entry in the boxing ring during trials with Good in Bed۪ playing in the background, the boxer-turned-actor told DNA.
It can be recalled that when actor Akshay Kumar had featured in a controversial song, by the name of I Want Fakht You۪ in Joker۪ (2012), it eventually led to souring relationships between the actor and producer Farah Khan as the actor objected to the bold song. Kumar, who is making a cameo in Fugly۪, also happens to be a co-owner of Grazing Goat Productions.
Directed by Kabir Sadanand, Fugly۪ stars Vijender Singh along with Jimmy Shergill, Mohit Marwah and Kiara Advani.
The film is slated for release on 13th June 2014.
