"It was my idea to make this film in Tamil as well. Rajkumar Hirani also told me, 'Let's make this film in one language', but I thought this film has the potential and will work in the south as well," Madhavan told IANS.
It is then that the team shot the film simultaneously in both the languages.
"Saala Khadoos", co-produced by Rajkumar Hirani Films and Tricolour Films in association with UTV Motion Pictures, revolves around Madhavan's character, who relentlessly pushes his protege to overcome obstacles and achieve her goals.
The actor says the movie goes beyond boxing.
"All sports-based films have done really well if I go by statistics. But 'Saala Khadoos' is not just a sports film, it's a relationship film," he said.
