Lakshya is a new-age sports drama in which Naga Shaurya plays the role of an archer who wants to compete at the Olympics. Speaking with The Times of India in July, Naga Shaurya had said, “I play an archer who’s headed to the Olympics. The lockdown gave me the time to work out more to look better for this role. I even trained with a professional archer to learn the nuances of the sport and get the body language right.”
In addition to training under a professional archer, Naga Shaurya also worked with a celebrity fitness trainer to prepare for the role. This will be Shaurya’s 20th film.
According to the filmmakers, Lakshya (which translates to ‘Target’ in English) will be India’s first feature film on archery. The first-look poster, released in July, depicted Shaurya as an archer.
