Anurag Kashyap's "Mukkabaaz" had its first poster release Thursday after the movie's official song/promo came out on December 1. 


The director's upcoming movie is centred around the themes of sports and politics. It is based on the struggles of a low caste aspiring boxer who falls in love with the niece of a goon. 

The lead role is played by actor Vineet Kumar who has worked with Anurag Kashyap in movies like "Gangs of Wasseypur", "Ugly" and his short film "Murabba" from Bombay Talkies. 

The film also stars Jimmy Shergill in an important role. 

The song/promo of the movie was released even before the trailer or poster of the movie came out -- produced by Indian EDM sensation Nucleya and is titled "Paintra". 

The film was first showcased at the Toronto Film festival before making inroads into the home country. 

"Mukkabaaz" is set to release on January 12, 2018.
