PATPARGANJ resident and filmmaker Beenu Rajpoot began holding online sessions (on Zoom and Google meet) on fitness in March 2021, soon after she was chosen as a Fit India Champion by the Ministry of Youth Affairs & Sports, Government of India. She has been holding fitness sessions for residents of Delhi NCR, Chandigarh, Hyderabad, and Vizag.
