The show has been entertaining audiences and often raises the question of how the cast maintains their beautiful and sharp-looking physique. In an exclusive conversation, Sheezan Khan who portrays the role of Alibaba in Sony SAB’s Alibaba Dastaan-e-Kabul spilled his secrets about his fitness regime.
Immunity and the internal well-being of the body are always desirable. When asked, Sheezan shared, “My definition of fitness is that one must be healthy from the inside, build strong immunity and always stay active and energetic.” Is his incredible fitness solely because of his diet and exercise. Of course not, Sheezan explained, “I go to the gym 6 days a week immediately after I wrap my shoot. To maintain a healthy lifestyle, I plan my entire meal plan. My mother helps me a lot with that, she also maintains a schedule for me. I watch what I eat and also make sure that I consume the right amount of calories at the right time. I make sure that I give a proper rest to my body on Sunday. It is very important for me that I keep a disciplined and focused lifestyle to help my body perform at its best.” No doubt Sheezan misses no opportunity to keep his body in shape even when put on a strenuous schedule of work.
For the demand of his role in Alibaba Dastaan-e-Kabul, Sheezan gained 14 kgs, by following a strict diet. While he has worked hard on his physique, he shares that diet is very important to achieve any fitness goal. “I completely agree with the fact that “Abs are made in the kitchen” as what we consume directly affects our fitness level. I avoid fatty processed food as much as I can and take along my home-made meals even to shoots so as to keep myself well-fed and always active.” He shares his love for homemade snacks and meals which helps him to stay energetic all day throughout his shoot.

Interestingly, Sheezan is a bigtime foodie! While he takes care of what he eats, during his shoot hours he makes sure to at least nibble on something throughout the day. He mentions ‘the thought of a good meal motivates me to give my best even while working out.’
“Fitness is a long-term and consistent process. One must always take any chance possible to at least go for a walk every day and make sure they eat healthily. Even machines start debilitating after some time if not maintained, we are but human. Working hard and eating well is the key to maintaining your fitness”, shares Sheezan as a tip to all his fans.
