Some actors are dissatisfied with the pursuit of playing a driver and prefer real life adventure. These actors go on to use their fame to score a few sponsors and get behind the wheel of a genuine race car to compete against career pros. Smita Gondkar is one of them.
Smita Gondkar a prominent actress who works primarily in Marathi and Hindi films is one of the very few actresses to enjoy sports as much as acting. Even in the past the actress has shared her love for racing and bikes by participating in many shows and races. In fact, she is also a part of Ahura Racing which is an all-girls team.
Taking this passion, a step further, she recently participated in JK Tyre Festival Of Speed 2019. She says “I got a call from the JK tyre team and Ahura racing to participate in JK Tyre racing championship round 4 #FestivalOfSpeed 2019, I was more than happy to be a part of it. I had to manage my shooting schedule though. I would have anyways done that for the love of racing”
Elaborating more about the sport, Pappi De Parula actress said “Luckily, I pick up technical things pretty quickly. I won’t say this is an easy sport, but yes, my passion for motorsports did prove to be an advantage. Seat Time is a major factor in these sports”
Talking about the track experience, she shares that racing is an expensive sport and it doesn’t really give back anything except thrill and adventure. “It is an extremely calculative sport and you cannot mess around. Plus, the rules are very strict and safety measures are advanced.”
