Richa has been a fitness enthusiast since an early age and keeps herself engaged with various types of fitness activities. For the film and linked to her personal fitness goals, she has also taken to strength training, Yoga and Agility training and with the new addition of Kabaddi training she is going to be more fit and agile. This has helped her create a new discipline for herself.
Speaking about it, Richa said, “I have recently recovered from an injury and it’s been a perfect time for me to be doing this film. I wanted to collaborate with my personal fitness goals with that of the film. So the training of Kabbadi extended me to collaborate with people like Mustafa who has curated a fantastic strength and movement-based fitness module for me. I have always loved doing new things for fitness and I’m glad I’m getting to experiment. I also went back to the roots of my school practice of doing Iyengar yoga, as that’s imperative too. Also, I found myself on a personal front attracted towards fusion belly dance and that’s what I have personally taken up too. So all these new fitness things have been instrumental for my overall fitness and for the training of the film”.
