LAHORE would be the first film which is bringing out the sports of Kickboxing as the central theme of its content, and has juxtaposed it against the Indo-Pakistan passions. However it indeed is a fact worth mentioning that art of kickboxing has been a part of the Hindi cinematic oeuvre for quite a long time, though it may not have been classified as such. Incidentally, films of Big B have been big proponents of the art of kick boxing for quite a long time. Some of the directors who have unknowingly given the flavor of kickboxing to the Indian audience and have whetted their appetite, so that they would indeed salivate in anticipation for LAHORE include:



MANMOHAN DESAI: If the entertainment had to be provided in diverse quotients nobody could stand anyway near to this master of entertainment and when he introduced the sports of kickboxing in NASEEB positioning as a part of Mumbai street culture, though it had a surreal reality, it was the underlining feature of NASEEB. Big B and Rishi Kapoor entering the ring and doing kickboxing in their own way against Manik Irani became the USP of NASEEB; however the sports did not get a wider representation in successive films.
