From rehearsing their lines together to sharing their dabbas, Karan Jotwani and Pratibha Ranta of Zee TV’s Qurbaan Hua might often be seen having squabbles on screen, but behind the scenes the duo share an extremely close and friendly bond with each other. While Karan might have already become Pratibha’s dabba buddy, turns out that the actor has graduated to becoming her Yoga buddy too! Attempting to maintain their fitness, the actors have now begun practising Yoga on the sets together.
Pratibha who has been a regular at practising Yoga, has taken charge of Karan’s fitness schedule as she teaches him some simple asanas and breathing techniques during their breaks from shoot. While Karan duly performs the asanas as guided by Pratibha, the actor doesn’t shy away from making humorous comments on her teaching techniques too!
Sharing his thoughts, Karan said “With our hectic shoot schedules back on track, neither of us are getting much time to spare towards fitness. Pratibha is a person who swears by yoga and seeing her love and passion towards it, I decided to take lessons from her. Despite our regular spurts of friendly banter, we have had a chance to practise a few aasanas together and it immediately acts as a refresher to boost our energy. I plan to now integrate this as a part of my routine and hopefully one day be at par with Pratibha too!”
Pratibha said, “It is indeed of utmost importance to take care of one’s heath amidst such difficult times. I have been practicing Yoga since a young age and have physically and mentally benefited from this form of exercise. It really acts as an energy booster especially when we are caught shooting for hours together. With Karan by my side now, the experience is much more fun and different especially with all the jokes and comments he makes. He is a good learner and we look forward to doing as a regular thing now.”
Its so nice to see actors taking care of their health and encouraging each other to do
so during their working hours!
