Sony Max brings alive the dream of aspiring boxer with the premier of 'Saala Khadoos'


Sony MAX brings alive the dream of Adi Tomar (Character name -Prabhu) to win the boxing gold for India and his scuffle with political powerhouse through the World Television premier of Saala Khadoos on Sunday, 26th June at 8pm.

Directed by Sudha Kongara Prasad and produced by Raj Kumar Hirani, Saala Khadoos is an underdog to champion story of foul-tempered headstrong boxer turned coach (R.Madhavan) and his hunt for India’s women boxing champion. Prabhu chances upon the raw fighting talent – Madhie (Ritika Singh) post his transfer from Hissar to Chennai and decides to put all his efforts to tame her and get her to shine as a true wrestler. On the other hand, Madhie is an aggressive fisherwoman who loves her freedom and is too frivolous to be a sportsperson, yet she falls in love with this ‘Khadoos’ but caring coach and delivers a knock-out performance at the World Boxing Championship.

Commenting on the occassion, R. Madhavan says, “I have given 3 years of my life to this movie, preparing myself and working on my look. I had become too complacent, bored with my work and needed a change and this movie turned out to be exactly what I wanted. But I also went through one of the most difficult times of my life during this film as we struggled to find a producer who would not want to modify the script until Raj Kumar Hirani found it astounding and did much more than required to promote the movie.”
