Doosri Maa actor Mohit Sharma: Riding a bicycle is a therapy for me
Cycling, for many, is the preferred form of cardio workout that offers a wealth of benefits. Radio jockey turned actor Mohit Sharma, who essays the role of Manoj in &TV show Doosri Maa, who is also a professional cyclist, loves cycling and always takes time out from his busy schedule to pedal and finds it therapeutic.
Talking about his love for cycling Mohit Sharma, essaying Manojin Doosri Maa says “During my school days, I used to enjoy cycling with my friends. We all had a great time roaming the streets. However, as time passed, we all started riding bikes and driving cars. However, after the lockdown, I decided to relive my childhood memories by purchasing a bicycle. It was one of the wisest decisions I ever made. At that time, I got time to ride my cycle and explore the empty streets of Jaipur, old temples, monuments, and enjoys all the infrastructure in my neighbourhood. I would have missed these beautiful sights sitting in my car. I used to search water bodies and natural areas on Google Maps near me and reach there on my cycle. It helped me discover many things which I never knew before. It is during that time that I discovered a beautiful pond near my house. I also discovered a 300-year-old temple and met a Masterji from a nearby village who has lived there since the year of independence. Thanks to cycling, I now know many such beautiful locations where I go, sit, and relax.” Cycling is now not only his hobby but also a way of life to stay healthy. Mohit adds, “It is important to be physically fit and mentally strong. As part of my fitness routine, I start my day with cycling. I chose cycling to stay fit physically, but it has now evolved into a therapy for me. Cycling relieves my stress and anxiety and makes me happy. When I am cycling, focusing on the road or my cadence helps me develop concentration and awareness of the present moment. I can cycle for more than 50 kilometers now and compete in various cycling marathons and races.”
