A the Tom Hardy-starrer, 'Warrior' is a 2011 sports drama that was directed by Gavin O’Connor. It tells the story of two brothers, their relationship and how they are pitted against each other in a martial arts tournament.

Not only has Endemol has bought the rights to this film, it seems that Karan Malhotra may now direct this film, even before Shuddhi goes on the floors next year.
