New Delhi, March 11 : Disha Patani, who plays an air hostess in the adrenaline-pumping action film ‘Yodha’, recalled playing volleyball with lead actor Sidharth Malhotra during the shoot breaks.

Disha, who was in the national capital on Monday, along with Sidharth and Raashii Khanna to promote their film, directed by Sagar Ambre and Pushkar Ojha, looked resplendent in a white silk saree and a matching embellished sleeveless blouse with a sweetheart neckline.

Talking about the fun thing they did during the shoot of the movie, Disha said: “We shot the entire schedule in the plane, and anytime we used to have a break we used to play Volleyball on the set. So that was the fun thing we had.”

Sidharth went on to share how Disha did not miss out on her workouts on the sets of ‘Yodha’.

He said: “I remember I shot for 10 days, and then Disha’s sequence came. She came on set, we were standing in a studio in Mumbai. There was a vanity van, (and) a basic tent setup for food. After Disha came, some people came to meet me and said wow you have got a gym set up outside, and now you will work out on the set.”

“I said there was no gym on the set 10 days before. So then I got to know that when Disha came she also brought her gym. I found that very amazing because that is the level of her dedication towards her fitness. In this film, her costume is saree, but the way she had set up her gym so that she doesn’t miss out her workouts,” he shared.

Lauding his co-star, Sidharth added: “I think people see her dedication not only in the physical aspect but she has performed really well in the film.”

Disha added: “I think this is Sidharth’s best film ever, the way he is looking and he has performed. Raashii is unreal in the film as well.”

‘Yodha’ will be the first part of an action franchise headlined by Sidharth.

It is jointly produced by Hiroo Yash Johar, Karan Johar, Apoorva Mehta, and Shashank Khaitan.

The film is set to release on March 15.
