It's the turn of R. Madhavan to shed his extra kilos and focus on his fitness. Madhavan, who will be seen as a boxer in his forthcoming film, is busy working out in gym and shed over 15 kilos. Madhavan has been extensively training in Los Angeles to suit the role. Titled 'Laal', the film will be directed by Mani Ratnam's previous associate Sudha Kongara and it's a Hindi-Tamil bilingual film.
Apparently director Sudha and Madhavan have worked over a year on script and reportedly took inspiration from Mohammad Ali's life in boxing ring and added few fictions to it. Madhavan was quoted as saying, "I've been in LA training and preparing for my part. My entire body structure and body language has changed. I now walk and think like a boxer."
Besides this, the yesteryear 'chocolate boy' is also gearing up for another Hindi film Tanu Weds Manu 2, sequel to previous blockbuster of the actor. Maddy admits that his part in the sequel exactly starts where he left off in the original. Kangana too reprising her own role in the sequel.
