Sony Max to air 'Saala Khadoos' on 26 June

MUMBAI: 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 26 June at 8 pm.

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.

R. Madhavan actor said, “I have given 3years 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 thismovie 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.”
