Popular fitness influencer Misha Sharma, who has over 7.8 lakh followers on Instagram, shared a clip that showed her perform a perfect double flip while being draped in a saree.
In recent years, Sharma has amassed a considerable social media following thanks to the stunning videos that show her perform aerial manoeuvres like cartwheels, somersaults and barani flips in the unlikeliest of places. She rarely uses gear like mats or padded floorings to do her stunts, making her videos stand out. Adding to the appeal of her gymnastics moves is their effortlessness.
Earlier this month, one of her videos went viral showing her do a full 360-degree flip inside the crowded Bangalore Metro, popularly known as Namma Metro.

Another athlete, Parul Arora, has also built an impressive social media following with her gymnastics skills. Several of Arora’s videos in which she effortlessly does cartwheels, backflips and more in a saree have rakeed in thousands of likes.
Arora, who is also a personal training coach, told indianexpress.com that she made her gymnastics videos in a saree to “highlight that clothes do not matter and define who we are”.
But she asks people to stay on the side of caution while performing stunts. “The only tip I would like to give is that one should try such stunts only after achieving some level of training. It should be done always under the guidance of an expert to avoid injuries,” she says.
