As he prepares to play boxer Dingko Singh in a sports biopic to be directed by Raja Krishna Menon, actor Shahid Kapoor considers it a privilege to be a part of the project.
âThe Dingko Singh biopic is a very special film. We see and hear so many stories of people who are already famous, people who have been loved. But there are so many heroes who arenât spoken about and I feel itâs a great privilege to be telling the stories of such unsung heroes. I think this generation needs to know about them,â Shahid says.
Singh is an Asian gold medallist in the Bantamweight category. Talking about why heâs excited to play him on screen, the actor says, âI think Dinko Singh has quite a unique personality, and his achievements are very inspiring. It is a great privilege that Iâm getting an opportunity to portray them.â
Meanwhile, Shahid is promoting his upcoming film Batti Gul Meter Chalu.
