Shailedra singh said,

I agree Vijender is not much of an actor yet. But he’s very good-looking and he’s one helluva boxer. We’ve cast him in Patiala Express as a boxer because we know he’ll look convincing. We’ve seen Sohail Khan and Bobby Deol play boxers in Abhishek Kapoor’s Aryan and Anil Sharma’s Apne, What can I say ?

We genuinely feel boxing has the potential to be the second most popular sport in our country after cricket. It doesn’t require too much investment and there’s no need for large expensive stadiums for the bouts.

As far as I can see, there’s only one knock-out sports film in Hindi, and that’s Lagaan. Neither Aamir Khan nor Ashutosh Gowariker is available to direct Vijender’s boxing film. We’re looking at fresh directorial talent from the advertising world.

The director of the fillum is not yet finalised but news says that the actress who will be working opposite Vijender will be either Bipasha Basu or Priyanka Chopra.
