She is hailed as the numero uno actress of Bollywood and while it has been quite some time since we saw Deepika Padukone work her magic in Hindi films, we will soon get to see her in a rather royal avatar. However, this year, despite no Bollywood release, it was very special for the actress who decided to make a debut in Hollywood and that too opposite Vin Diesel.
Deepika Padukone’s action packed role in her debut film XXX: The Return of Xander Cage grabbed eyeballs but it was no cakewalk. The actress underwent rigorous training to get the nuances right and besides learning combat and other skills; she also had to follow a regular fitness schedule. Giving a glimpse of one such schedule of hers from the archive was her trainer Farhan Dhalla.
In fact, he shared a video of this short regime and also posted a long and motivating note on the same saying, “#ThrowbackThursday A sample of the training I did with Deepika Padukone to help prepare for her role in #XXXTheReturnOfXanderCage. Every moment is an opportunity for us to grow and transform. We are all unique and have a unique path. No two paths and no two bodies are the same. You are the star of your own life. It’s important we strive to be the best version of ourselves always. Let this video inspire you to reflect and take inspired action. Who are you today? Who do you wish to become? How can you grow? Set an intention. Have a vision and ask yourself What can I do even if it’s a small step today to grow and evolve honouring my uniqueness? Then pay attention and the guidance you seek will come. I’m sending you all lots of love and Angel blessings #bollywoodtrainer #deepikapadukone.”
