Bhumi Pednekar and Taapsee Pannu are all set up for their upcoming biographical film Saand Ki Aankh based on the lives of sharpshooters Chandro and Prakashi Tomar. It is slated to hit the cinemas on October 25 after all the buzz that the film has been giving rise to, for the unconventional avatars played by the two leading ladies. The two have spent a month learning air pistol shooting as a part of their preparation to play the octogenarian shooters.

Bhumi, playing the part of Chandro Tomar in the Tushar Hiranandani directorial, has drawn her inspiration from the film such that the actress has decided to continue air pistol shooting as a sport for lifelong. After having been associated with the sport for a month, Bhumi feels that air pistol shooting gives her happiness. She sees the split second before pulling the trigger as a form of meditation and feels a sense of achievement when the bullet hits the bullseye. 

The Dum Laga Ke Haisha actress compares air pistol shooting with running and playing badminton. She says that it has become a part of her life like any other sport which she enjoys because it keeps her healthy and happy. She draws another comparison saying that when one goes to the gym, it relaxes the mind as you sweat it out. Similarly, when one takes up a sport, it keeps them on their toes, which is a lesson that can be learned at any point in life.
