You are a national icon and your life journey is hugely inspirational. I am personally humbled and honored to get the opportunity to wear boxing gloves standing next to you! Aap Bharat ki shaan ho (you are India's pride)."

The film's poster revealed Anupam Kher as an old man who appears to have the spirit of a tiger behind a framed glass, where he can be seen wearing boxing gloves and a dog is seen in the picture stating, "Really!!!" Also, the text on the poster read, 'Shiv Shastri Balboa'.
The film also features Neena Gupta, Nargis Fakri, Jugal Hansraj, and Sharib Hashmi in prominent roles. Helmed by Indian-American filmmaker Ajayan Venugopalan, the film will be reportedly released in the English language.
Earlier, last year, Anupam Kher shared the first poster of the film featuring him, Neena Gupta, and a dog, where the trio was seen standing in the middle of a village abroad with cows grazing in the background of the picture.
