Ahead of his birthday on May 7, Vinay Rajkumar seems to have already got a gift. The actor has signed his fifth film, for which he will be associating with producer Pushkar Mallikarjunaiah. Vinay will be essaying the role of a boxer in the film. 

This project is also creating a buzz since it marks the directorial debut of cinematographer Karm Chawla, who is known for his work in Ulidavaru Kandante, Kirik Party, Humble Politician Nograj and Avane Srimannarayana. 

While making an official announcement about this, the makers also released Vinay’s look. “We wanted someone who would look the role. From not being into fitness at all to turning boxer, he’s come a long way. With his lean frame and height, we thought he was the perfect fit. Moreover, we wanted a raw face, so that we could register the transformation,” says Puskhar.

The team plans to go on floors in July. Apart from Vinay, Gopal Deshpande has also been brough on board to play Vinay’s coach. 

Vinay, who is teaming up with Pushkar films and Karm Chawla for the first time, says it is a ‘dream project’ for him. “Compared to all my previous films, this one needs a lot of work. The film is based on sports, and the subject is new to the Kannada industry. I have already started preparation,” adds the actor, who is planning to juggle between Gramayana and this project.
