Not just in the sense that she’s a dreamer, but that she actually speaks to the clouds (laughs). You’ll get a clearer idea when you watch the film.

Sia is also a very strong girl; she will stand up for herself, even in a physically threatening situation. It is this quality that makes her a rebel. There are a few action scenes, which I really enjoyed doing, but of course, I don’t have as many as Tiger (Shroff) does. I learnt some basic punches, kicks and blocking techniques, and also got into a little bit of Kalaripayattu. I didn’t train for very long, only a few days. But those few days were intense.Well, in ABCD 2, I injured my left leg and in this film I injured my right leg (laughs). Seriously, though, both experiences were quite different, but there were also many similarities. For instance, the sense of rhythm and timing that you require for dance, is also important in martial arts.

Training for Baaghi was really challenging, and at the end of every rehearsal, I would get aches in muscles that I didn’t know existed. At the same time, it was gratifying to know that I could do all this physically strenuous stuff, that I could kick and punch. It’s good to feel strong and empowered, and I was happy that I was able to pick up some of the techniques really fast. I must give credit to my training in ABCD 2, because muscle memory kicked in when I began training for Baaghi. It’s incredible how quickly your body starts remembering how to move in a certain way.
