To be Sirat I had to learn the art of boxing. I must admit that boxing is one of the toughest sports I have come across. One wrong move and the game's over. It does require alot of precision, accuracy, power and swiftness. A special thank you to my amazing trainer @balkrishnashetty08 for making me do these rigorous training in such a short span of time. Je toh bas shuruwat hai. Keep watching Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata hai and keep spreading love and hope to all followed a couple of emojis and the hashtag #Sirat."
