But first know about Asola Fatehpur
Asola-Fatehpur Beri is India's strongest village. For ages, male teenagers and men, even in their 50s, have been working out for two hours twice daily. They climb ropes, wrestle in mud, and do some hundred sit-ups and push-ups, all while balancing their hands on bricks.

While announcing the wrap, Bhatia wrote, "Time flies when you're having the best time everrr!" "I can't believe that it's already a wrap on the first schedule of #bablibouncer @imbhandarkar sir you are the reason the set reverberates with such a childlike, happy and peaceful energy, we have worked non stop but never even at one point felt like we were at work (sic)."
