Actor Pavail Gulati will be playing a boxer in his next film and has started training for it. Currently shooting for Shahid Kapoor’s Deva, which is directed by Rosshan Andrrews, Pavail will soon start working on a new skill of boxing for his next action film.

A source close to the actor revealed, "Pavail is spending a significant amount of time in the boxing ring, and his commitment is impressive. It’s clear he is gearing up for something significant. This is for a brand-new project which is expected to be announced soon, and will go on floors towards end of 2024. Pavail is required to train extensively for this”. 

Speaking about the new project, Pavail said, “I am prepping to play a boxer in a film. It will go on floors by the end of this year so I need to spend a good and considerable amount of time to prepare. There haven’t been too much action focused films in India with boxing at the core. We have seen MMA, Muay Thai, and many more such things become popular. As a sport too, boxing is gaining a lot of fandoms here.”

He added, “This film is a story of such an individual navigating this sport and his life. It’s a triumphant story. And I have time in my hand between prep for Deva and being fit, to prepare and polish my boxing skills enough to be convincing on screen when we shoot”.

He had earlier shared his experience of working with Shahid Kapoor on Deva, calling it ‘an absolute delight’.

Pavail is known for playing pivotal roles in films like Kalank (2019), Thappad (2020) and Dobaaraa (2022).
