Akshay Oberoi is learning boxing for his next project 'Gurgaon'. The actor plays a Haryanvi lad who is into boxing in the film.
While the makers suggested he train under international boxers, he opted for a Haryanvi boxer as the biggest names in Indian boxing come from Punjab and Haryana.
Akshay, who was last seen in 'Pizza 3D', will next be seen in 'Fitoor' besides in a guest appearance in 'Piku'.
