The video featured the Mimi actor donning a grey sports bralette top, teamed with a pair of grey camouflage tights, a pair of white sneakers and a pair of red boxing gloves to ace the athleisure look.
Pulling back her sleek tresses into a high ponytail hairstyle to keep them off her face during the intense exercise session, Kriti sweat it out as she took her position and packed in a few neat punches.
Polishing her pad work ahead of the kickboxing session, Kriti stood in position opposite Karan and trained with him as his opponent. The video showed her doing a few reps of kickboxing routine as her trainer held the pad in front of her.
