Mumbai, Feb 14, (ANI): Boxer Akhil Kumar has come out with his maiden music album 'Precious Platinum' where the pugilist got a chance to exhibit his artistic talents.
The video is the sequel to the album made by legendary singer Asha Bhosle.
The boxer will be pairing opposite model Ankeeta Mukherjee for the song 'vadda'.
Akhil described this experience as very pleasant and said, "The music video has a sporty look and it represents me as a boxer. When I was told about the song and suitability for the role, I thought to take up as I had spare time."
The director of the video S. Ramachandran said he wanted to make the video different with a new cast.
"I knew that Asha Bhosle was not supposed to feature in the video as she was out of town. We had limited time because the music is already out in the market. So, we thought to make this video a bit different," Ramachandran said.
This role was earlier offered to Olympic bronze medal winner boxer Vijender Singh, but he refused it due to some personal reasons. (ANI)
