Shahid Kapoor has some exciting projects up his sleeve right now, and one of them is the much talked about biopic of Dingko Singh. The film has been talked about for a while. Now the actor has finally said something about it and it is not a pleasant update for his fans.
For the inexperienced, before the pandemic could strike, it was learned that Shahid will portray the character of Indian boxer Ngangom Dingko Singh in his biopic. Singh had won gold for India at the 1998 Asian Games and was honored with Padma Shri in 2013. Sadly, he passed away in June 2021 at the age of 42.
In addition to portraying the boxer, Shahid Kapoor would also come on board as a producer for the Dingko Singh biopic. However, the plan ended up on the back burner. Now, after being a mother for a long time, Shahid Kapoor talked about the project while speaking to Bombay Times.
Shahid Kapoor said: “The film about Dingko Singh is currently not on the agenda. It was a very challenging role, but when the pandemic hit I didn’t have the chance to train in boxing. The film required a lot of dedication and time to undergo an intensive training. Moreover, the film was not yet fully developed, in fact it was still in its infancy at the time.”
He even talked about giving a nod to Raj & DK’s web show. “I like something different than what I normally do. I like KK and Manoj Bajpayee in their web shows – they break new ground and try different things. It’s so hypocritical to distinguish between what you do and what you like to watch, especially for an actor,” Shahid added.
On the work front, Shahid Kapoor will be seen in Jersey. The release is scheduled for April 14, 2022.
