Now that the need for the girls to be trained in self-defense seems more than ever, Bollywood actress Soha Ali Khan is learning the martial arts, albeit for a film.
Soha will reportedly play a police inspector in the upcoming film Joe B Karvalo, and to get into the skin of her character, the girl is learning martial arts at Recreation Club located in Shastri Nagar in Andheri (West).
Her trainer is none other than Yagnesh Shetty who has taught martial arts to Bollywood celebs for decades.
Yagnesh is apparently impressed with Soha Ali Khan’s dedication in learning the martial arts.
“Soha is very dedicated and hardworking. She is learning very fast. Every girl should learn the art for self defence so that they can defend themselves, since police appears to be having a problem reaching everywhere. It should be made mandatory in all schools and colleges,” Shetty is quoted as saying.
Meanwhile, Soha Ali Khan recently expressed her shock and anger over the brutal rape of the 23-year-old girl in Delhi.
“I can't imagine that kind of brutality, it makes one incredibly enraged when you think about it…I can't imagine what the victim and her family are going through… my heart bleeds for her and I hope that she survives and that she fights and goes on to live a wonderful life. I am just praying for her well-being at the moment,” Soha said.
