Mukkabaaz is an upcoming sports drama film directed by Anurag Kashyap and produced by Aanand L Rai. From MS Dhoni to Dangal, Bollywood has successfully churned out one sports film after the other.

"We have more sports movies than medals".

Earlier today, the makers unveiled a poster from the film, and now, dropped a new trailer that is sure to keep you on the edge of your seat. In population, we are second after China, but in the medal tally we always lag behind. Why is it happening, why can't we produce sportsmen? Through this film and through a love story, we are trying to explore that.

But it is not just the administration, but also people, in general, who should be blamed for disrespecting the sportspersons, who bring pride to the country. We go insane. A small medal is celebrated so much that the person who won that doesn't even qualify the next time. The film comes from that irony. The main lead, Vineet Kumar, who's previously worked in Gangs of Wasseypur, Ugly and his short film "Murabba" from Bombay Talkies, is in the lead role and definitely steals the show. The film looks at how in sports we have to deal with things which are not connected to it. "The irony exists only in our country and then we expect medals", said Anurag Kashyap.

Kashyap said the film aims to have a larger commentary on the situation of sports in the country.

"Patriotism has become a formula now". That formula has now come into films and in real life too. With earnest performers like Singh, Ravi Kishan and of course, Shergill, it is safe to say that there is very little that could go wrong in the film; however, the story must act as a proper foil for these actors to shine.
