Kriti Sanon has posted a behind the scene video from her upcoming film Ganapath narrating her grueling training session. The actress plays the role of Jassi in the film.
Showcasing various scenes of her training to be in tip-top condition for the sci-fi-action film, Sanon had to learn many things. This included using nunchucks, martial arts, riding a dirt bike, kickboxing, as well as grueling fitness exercises such as iron body, full-out stretching, cardio and more.
The actress said, “I’ve been dying to do action on-screen and I was supposed to use nunchucks as my main weapon. Her trainer, addressing this situation, said: “Her wrist was very slim so we had to open it up. So before I handed her the nunchucks, I trained her with a Shaolin staff.”
She added, “This is the first time I’ve done action ever, (laughs) but I knew I had a very long way to go. With every weapon you use, you first have to master the art of using it. As such it has to come to you very naturally.”
Then showing other videos of her training, Sanon was shown doing kickboxing, mixed martial arts, punching, and running.
Elaborating on other parts of her training, she said, “Apart from nunchucks there was also kickboxing training which I did. There was also, you know, a dirt bike, I was supposed to ride a dirt bike and I didn’t even know how to ride a bike before this.”
Describing her bike training, she said: “Riding a normal bike, or a heavy bike, or even a bullet is fine, but a dirt bike is very tall, and you know I’m saying that.”
Directed by Vikas Bahl, the movie stars Tiger Shroff, Sanon, and Amitabh Bachchan in lead roles. It will hit the big screen on October 20.
