Shraddha Kapoor’s Motorcycle diaries
Learning new activities while preparing for a role is a one of the many perks of being an actor. They learn a variety of skills, such as dance, marital arts, and languages, over the course of their careers. Often, these new activities also become hobbies. Take the case of Shraddha Kapoor, who, for her 2014 film, Ek Villain, learnt to ride a motorbike. The 26-year-old took lessons, and even had a small accident while shooting for the film. However, even though it has been more than a year since the film released, the actor still gets excited about getting on a bike.
A source close to Shraddha says, “She enjoys bike rides a lot, so much so that while shooting for her movies, whenever there is a bike on the sets, she requests its owner to let her take a quick ride on it. She drives it around on the sets. Bikes have always fascinated her, and it is rare that she gets a chance to ride one. So whenever she gets the opportunity, she does not miss out on making the most of it.” The source adds that the actor finds the activity “liberating”, and that it gives her an “adrenaline rush”.
