Mumbai: Actor Sonu Sood, who became popular as Chhedi Singh in the blockbuster `Dabangg`, won`t mind playing a boxer on the big screen but in real life he would like to stay away from the boxing ring.
"If you are an actor, than it is not very safe to do boxing. We do it in films, but that is definitely not real action. If the actors get injured, the producers face a lot of loss," Sonu said at a World Series of Boxing match here.
Talking about taking up a boxer`s role in reel, he said: "Definitely, why not. Many scripts come where the character of a boxer is offered, but like I said, you need to be prepared for it... you better get prepared as an actor," he said.
Meanwhile, Sonu is busy shooting for `Maximum` with Naseerudin Shah and his home production `Lucky Unlucky` with Mallika Sherawat.
