Action time for Anushka Ranjan!
- Planet Bollywood Special Correspondant           Let us know what you think about this story

Anushka Ranjan, who made a striking debut with Wedding Pullav released last year, is a fitness enthusiast and besides following a rigorous fitness regime, she has been learning mixed martial arts (MMA), which is like a full-contact combat sport that allows the use of both striking and grappling techniques.

Anushka says, "I've just started MMA two months ago. I feel it's an added advantage as not every actress in Hindi cinema gets to do action on screen."

Considering Anushka's tall frame and fierce look, there are several offers for action-oriented roles but the actress refused to divulge any details by just saying, "An actor should always be prepared to play variety of roles and learning MMA will always benefit, also for my personal growth and I've already started seeing results."

"MMA is helpful not only as a talent but also keeps you fit and flexible and makes you more disciplined," adds Anushka, who seems to be inspired by the young heartthrob and fitness icon, Tiger Shroff.

"I like the action that Tiger does. I know to be able to do that I'll need a lot of practice and time but I'd like to be able to do stunts like that," says Anushka.
