Vijender Singh, who is set to make his Bollywood debut in director Kabir Sadanand’s next, is currently concentrating on his training in Patiala for the Asian Games and Commonwealth Games.

Though the boxer-turned-actor will only promote his film on weekends, he is keeping a tab on the reactions to his debut.

I will act in my biopic: boxer Vijender Singh

"I have seen Bhoothnath Returns six times. I liked the film, especially because of Bachchanji and the child actor’s performance. But the main reason for watching it again and again was to catch the trailer of my film and to see how people react to it," says Vijender.

The debutant also expresses his contentment on receiving a positive response from the audiences.

"My film’s trailer was screened before the film started. I enjoyed it, especially when I heard somebody say, ‘

Finally Vijender debut kar raha hai…acha dikh raha hai

’ (finally, Vijender is making his debut.. He is looking good)," adds Vijender.

Although the actor shies away from commenting on his own performance, he praises his co-stars for helping the film shape up well. “Everyone, including Jimmy Sheirgill, Mohit Marwah, Arfi Lamba and Kiara Advani, have done a fabulous job. I think I, too, have lived up to Kabir’s expectations,” says the actor.
