If people are still waiting to watch the film, they hold it there, cause there is a huge line and it stars from Mike Tyson.
You heard it right! Mike Tyson wants to watch Saala Khadoos, the American former professional boxer shared on his Facebook profile a photo from Irudhi Suttru (Saala Khadoos) and a review by National Award- winning Tamil cinema critic Baradwaj Rangan and captioned it, "I'd like to see this boxing film."
