Speaking about the preparations Farhan Akhtar had to make for the role, his coach Drew Neal said: “Farhan trained for two hours each day. The speed he was learning would probably be four times what a normal novice boxer would have. Take it. So , instead of a one-year workout, it was like a four-year workout. ” He was first coached by Farhan Drew, then handed over to Darrell for training, and filming began in August 2019.
