He’s been a man of relentless workouts and fitness freak and his insatiable passion to push the bars remains inevitable. Moreover, as soon as the official word was out on “Boxer” and his role, his fans were animated with huge expectations pondering if they would get a glimpse of his preparation for the project. Especially with a mentor like Peter Hein and their embarkation together into the school of LEIN PHONG, one of the world’s most celebrated martial arts training hub located in Vietnam, the pulses among fans found themselves on high rhythmic tempos.
Filmmaker Vivek says, “It’s been a month long hectic training for Arun Vijay sir. Everyone knows that he is a perfectionist in maintaining an awe-inspiring fitness in real life. He has taken additional efforts for our film “Boxer”. In accordance to the suggestion of Peter Hein Master, he underwent training at Lein Phong in Vietnam. It wasn’t an easy deal as Arun Vijay sir had to train himself continuously for 8 hours a day and despite this fact, he remained cool and aplomb. I am really thankful to both of them for pampering this film as their own child. More than doing their job on professional front, they are emotionally bounded to this film, which I believe will definitely escalate the film to a greater magnitude. I thank local trainer Sundeep for his wonderful support throughout this process. This video is just a glimpse of what we have done so far and there are lots more compilations, which involves the rigorous and painstaking efforts of Arun Vijay sir. More than all, we wanted to present this video as his fans have been curiously looking up for. When I say fans, they aren’t merely the ones who watch his films, but invariably follow him for his fitness style”
Following a month long training session, Arun Vijay returned back to Chennai before couple of days and is currently holidaying with his family. As planned, the shooting will commence by this June and will proceed accordingly with its schedules.
The film revolves around a reigning boxer and his turbulent journey of combating the evil within.
