The actors will start shooting for the film early next year. The shooting of the film is expected to start in February.

According to the report, Sanjay Gupta is stepping into a new genre through this film. He made many films in his career but never directed any sports drama film, so he is very excited about it.

He started preparing for this film several days back. From January, he will start the pre-production work. Sanjay is also the producer of this film.

The film will hit the audience by the end of next year.
