If a Salman Khan film is the golden ticket to the big league, Disha Patani is certainly in an enviable position. Putting an end to months of speculation, the superstar made it known yesterday that Patani had been roped in to play the female lead in his ambitious film, Radhe: Your Most Wanted Bhai as he shared a picture with her from the film's mahurat, on social media. This marks her second film with Khan this year after the Eid release, Bharat.

Naturally, the actor can't contain her joy on having bagged the big-ticket flick. "Salman sir has always been an inspiration to me. Working with him in Bharat was a dream come true. Now, it's happening again in Radhe," beams Patani. The actioner that reportedly sees Khan as an undercover cop will be helmed by the superstar's current favourite, Prabhudeva. Whether the choreographer-director will design an elaborate dance piece to tap into her unmatched dancing skills is anybody's guess. For now though, she hopes to imbibe the best of the actor-director duo. "I will learn so much more as I work with Salman sir and Prabhudeva sir. They have been supportive and helpful. I am so excited about Radhe."

While the names of many actors — including Katrina Kaif and Anushka Sharma — were doing the rounds for the coveted role, a source informs that Khan and Prabhudeva were in talks with Patani for long. "They felt she was apt for the character. She has started workshops and reading sessions."
The film will be Khan's Eid 2020 release, true to his promise that he would keep his date with fans after his magnum opus with Sanjay Leela Bhansali, In-shaa-Allah, fell through.

    Many aren't aware of the real reason behind Disha Patani's perfect hot-bod. Apart from a disciplined diet, her intense workout is also in charge of her petite figure. A choc-o-block schedule and mini-vacations don't keep the actress away from her daily workout regime. In an interview with mid-day, Disha Patani said: "I make certain that I perform some form of weight-training and cardiovascular work every day. If I am at a beach, I will swim. I also always look for a place that has a gym."

    Disha Patani enjoys exploring and discovering places on foot, which adds to the amount of physical activity she fits into her day. That's important, she says, because "I eat a lot on vacation." Once on home turf, Patani takes to a "strict diet" to burn off the holiday weight. "I may take up intermittent fasting, which shows quick results, and also train twice or three times a day."

    Talking about fitness, Disha Patani also shared, "Honestly, holidays are not supposed to be for training but I do make sure that I am doing weight training every day and I am doing some form of cardio every day and I also make sure that if I am at a beach place then I am swimming or some sort of activity because I eat a lot when I am on a vacation."

    "I always look for a place which has a gym that makes life very easy for me, I prefer weight training so I always look for a place and honestly if you are on a vacation you can always walk around or you can swim and do extracurricular stuff you can find in that particular area. I like doing weight training because it's different or I like walking around honestly just like walking a lot looking out for places," Disha Patani further added.
