Chennai: Actor R. Madhavan, who will be seen as a boxing coach in his upcoming Tamil-Hindi bilingual, started shooting for the film here Friday. The film is titled `Irrudhi Suttru` in Tamil and `Saala Khadoos` in Hindi.

"For all my lovely folks asking me for the past 2 years... YES... Just started shooting my next Tamil and Hindi film. Wish me luck. It`s `Irrudhi Suttru` (Final Round) in Tamil and `Saala Khadoos` in Hindi," posted Madhavan on his Twitter page.

Madhavan plays a retired boxer-turned-coach in the film, which is being directed by Sudha Kongara, former associate of filmmaker Mani Ratnam.

The 44-year-old actor, known for films such as `Rang De Basanti` and `Tanu Weds Manu`, had spent the last few months in Los Angeles preparing for his role in the film, both physically and mentally.

He had also undergone a crash course in boxing.

Madhavan was last seen in the 2012 films `Vettai` and `Jodi Breakers`.
