n focus Kajal Aggarwal plays a boxer in ‘Thuppakki’

Kajal Aggarwal who has been busy shooting back to back films, is excited about her role of a boxer in the just-released Thuppakki opposite Vijay. Kajal says “In Thuppakki I play the role of Nisha who is this strong willed, impulsive girl and it is very different from the roles I have done previously. In fact when it came to the boxing sequences I watched a lot of Mary Kom’s matches. She really inspired me and initially I started watching her matches to just understand and learn her body language but later I was totally gripped and I was following her bouts at the 2012 Olympics.”

A source from the set added that, “The role of Nisha was quite challenging for Kajal but she managed to pull it off well. Kajal was extremely happy that she was given the opportunity to play the role of a boxer. She enjoyed playing the role of a boxer and probably explored the athlete in her that she thought was nonexistent!”
