Yaaneea Bharadwaj recalls the time she did a commercial with Hrithik Roshan
'Made In Heaven' fame, Yaaneea Bharadwaj who left many impressed with her impactful performance in the show has another interesting skill that she often impresses her followers with. This is her mastery in different weapons which she has learnt all by herself.
Talking about nunchaks, the actress shares, "I grew up watching a lot of Bruce Lee films which inspired me to get myself a pair of nunchaks. Then I started training myself in the weapon with videos online. Once, a director who I had previously worked with, approached me for an advertisement and asked if there was something unique we could add to it. So I suggested we do nunchaks, which the client really liked. Infact, not many know but with this I became the first Indian female actor to use nunchaks on the screen."
She adds, "What was the extremely exciting part about this was that Hrithik Roshan is my favourite actor and I had always been inspired by him to stay fit and work hard towards your passion, so when I got to know that he was in this commercial too, I couldn't believe it. Immediately, I started practicing my nunchaks skills even more because I was so excited and nervous at the same time, thinking that Hrithik would be seeing this too and I am glad it turned out well."
Talking about sword fighting she shares, "Besides nunchaks, I also know sword fighting which again, I have trained myself in with youtube videos. In the lockdown, I watched this series called, The Witcher which is what aggravated my interest in the art. Initially I started learning with a real heavy but not a sharp sword. Later on, I started practising with my grandfather's sword which was more than 100 years old."
The movie buff has proven herself time and again owing to her dedication and talent having done a commercial with Hrithik Roshan, worked with big-ticket production house like, Excel Entertainment and now being a part of the feature film, Chhorii along with another unannounced project in her pipeline.
