In a statement, Yami Gautam revealed why she opted for pole dancing as a fitness exercise - she said enthusiasm for fitness and love for dance culminated into the idea. "The whole idea came because of my love for fitness and dance and that is something I enjoy doing now. Pole dancing is a great way to work on your fitness ability and your dance. It challenges the fitness level a lot more," IANS quoted her as saying. However, she added that pole dancing is something she never really imagined herself to enroll for: "So I thought this could be something additional which until now I could not have imagined myself doing."
Other than Yami Gautam, Jacqueline Fernandez also practises pole dancing as part of her fitness routine. She also featured in a pole dancing sequence on screen in the song Chandralekha from the movie A Gentleman.
