Zohaeb Farooqui takes to MMA after gym injury

MMA (Mixed Martial Arts) has transformed Zohaeb Farooqui physically and mentally. The Inspector Avinash actor shares how and when it all started.

He says, “Learning something new takes time, so I gradually started to pick up. I started to enjoy it and ended up learning more than I imagined. But there is still more to learn. MMA keeps me in great shape and makes me feel light.”

Talking about how he was introduced to MMA, he adds, “I was introduced to it when I got injured in a gym where the doctor recommended me physiotherapy. At that time I hired a team to guide and help me exercise. I saw my team doing some great stunts. That’s it! I got attracted to it and decided to learn it. The boys who used to train me inspired me to take my passion ahead.”

MMA can be risky, but Zohaeb says at the end of the day if there is no risk then there is no story.
