Sonnalli Seygall is currently shooting for Vikram Bhatt's upcoming web show, ‘Anamika’, which also features Sunny Leone.  She plays a trained assassin in the series.  The show is special for her because this is the first project where she’ll be seen doing action sequences. 

Talking about the prep for the role and the new techniques she acquired, Sonnalli says, “I play Rhea, a trained assassin, who has got a killer instinct. She is extremely sharp and intelligent. There are a lot of running, fight and shooting sequences in the series. So I went through a gun training, where I learnt how to hold a gun and how to use it. I had basic fitness training for the show. Also, coincidently, I was travelling down south before the show and wanted to learn a martial arts form, so I learnt Kalaripayattu. That definitely came in handy during the shoot because any martial arts form gives you the right posture and body language.” 

The actress trained for about two hours every day, which included basic body weight training. “It helps me at the shoot. I also do a lot of cardio, as there are a lot of running and chasing sequences. On the set, I workout for 30 minutes for prep before every action sequence. It includes a lot of jumps,” says Sonnalli. 

The actress doesn’t believe in being size zero; she likes to stay fit. “*Even during the lockdown, I made sure that I worked out and stayed fit. But I’m not somebody who’s very stringent about being a certain body type, because for me, all sizes are beautiful. I had put on a bit of weight because I eat everything, but I workout. For this role, I had to look leaner because as an assassin you can’t be on the heavier side. I had to be lean and agile,” says Sonnalli.
