Vijay Kumar addresses rumours about the title of his upcoming action film

Speaking at the film’s teaser launch, the actor said, “[Brad Pitt’s] Fight Club is a cult classic. It will always remain a favourite for everyone. Even today, the film has got so many fans. Our team had discussed many titles, but this one felt the most apt. But in no way, we would want to tarnish the reputation of the cult classic. In fact, we hope our film could serve as a tribute to the David Fincher movie.”
