'Saala Khadoos' director Sudha Kongara is a happy woman as her very first film in Bollywood is produced by successful filmmaker Rajkumar Hirani.
Kongara's debut film is based on boxing and stars R. Madhavan with newcomer Ritika Singh. But she's particularly in awe of Hirani.
"I feel blessed, fortunate and safe. My film is in the safest and most caring pair of hands and I am fortunate to be mentored by a filmmaker of his stature," Kongara said in a statement.
The movie, which is also penned by Kongara, revolves around a strict coach essayed by Madhavan, who relentlessly pushes his protege Ritika to overcome obstacles and achieve her boxing goals. It will release on January 29.
