By going through the teaser the film is based on a boxer who hails from Uttar Pradesh who before getting to boxing will fall for a Brahmin girl. In the background, you hear the phrase – ‘Zindagi Ka Paitra Khel Le’.
The exact plot of the film has not been revealed as yet, but in an interview to TOI, Jimmy Shergill, did drop hints. “This is for the first time that I am teaming with Anurag Kashyap. We wanted to work together for a long time and now eventually Mukkabaaz has happened. Based on the backdrop of boxing, it is a film about sports politics in which I have a very powerful role,” he said.
