Mirzapur actor Ali Fazal says he is keen on learning kickboxing from MMA fighter Rohit Nair

After playing the role of Guddu Bhaiya in Mirzapur Season 1 and Season 2, actor Ali Fazal has undoubtedly proved his merit as an action star as well. The actor put on a lot of muscles before Mirzapur to fit right into the role. Now it seems like Ali Fazal will return once again in a new action role in a future film project. Recently the actor revealed that he is currently learning kickboxing from MMA fighter Rohit Nair.

 
He revealed saying, “It’s too early to talk about what and when. But there is a larger goal in sight too. Aagey ka aagey. I am learning this to fight the depression that comes along when you gain unhealthy weight -be it because of a pandemic, or a film or any other reason. For now, I am enjoying training each day, learning a new skill.”
 
“ During the lockdown, I got spoilt, because I shot a film that required me to be hefty and heavy. So I have been through a very unhealthy phase in my life. In the last few months, I have started alternating between Rohit’s usual training and boxing, taking one step at a time. He is teaching me everything about the sport from the scratch. His immense patience with me in understanding my strengths and weaknesses and that’s been such a major factor for me to keep at it. Collaborating with the right attitudes is a crucial factor in remaining focussed,” he added.
