“Rajputana style of sword-fighting is an evolved one, which requires the body to be both strong and agile at the same time. Shahid has been taught bits of Gatka, a mix of Angampora and Kalaripayattu. He is also learning spear play, as the spear is a customary weapon among Rajputs. He has been training for 24 days now,” a source from the film’s unit told mid-day.
