Doing 120 lbs in total .. @rakeshudiyar killing me and how !!! Wait for the end of the video … and my priceless expression of pain 🤪🤣 Main Kabhi Biryani Nahin Kaaungi 🙈#train #hard #prettygirlslift#traindirtyeatclean #beastmode#strong ”
Talking about the video she added, “I train with my trainer Rakesh and nowadays he is making me do a lot physical training but I am enjoying it. In the next few weeks, the more painful ones will come out through my social media account.”
