Pritha Bakshi REVEALS how her fitness regime helped her in shooting for Virodh in MX Player
Pritha Bakshi has captured the hearts of many with her remarkable performance as Kajri in the recently released crime thriller Virodh on MX Player. Pritha’s passion for fitness proved to be a valuable asset during the shooting of Virodh. She received additional training in Delhi for the series, which helped her execute the action sequences effortlessly.
As a fitness enthusiast, Pritha regularly participates in various activities such as tennis, badminton, running, and yoga, maintaining a healthy lifestyle. A trained yoga instructor, she practices solely for herself. Her fitness routine and healthy lifestyle ensured she was physically and mentally prepared for the demanding shoot schedule, adding authenticity to her portrayal of Kajri who is a young sportswoman facing numerous challenges in the series.
Sharing how her fitness journey helped during the intense shooting sequences in Virodh, Pritha said, “Fitness is a significant part of my life, and it brings me a lot of happiness. Even though shooting as a sport might not be as physically demanding as some other sports, it requires patience and mental balance, much like high-intensity workouts. This connection between shooting and fitness is what helped me prepare for my role. If you are not calm and focused, you cannot aim correctly in shooting, which is similar to how you must maintain composure and mental balance during a challenging workout.”

In a desperate attempt to save Gogi’s life, Kajri offers to marry Vishesh, but their wedding night turns into a bloodbath as a violent shootout erupts. On the run from Brijbhan and his henchmen, can Kajri and Gogi survive the dangerous world they find themselves in?
