Yes, I try to go often to the gym. In fact, I go to the gym atleast five days a week.
How much time do you spend in a day for workout?
One and a half to two hours. I mostly do cardio as I'm not much into body building.
Apart from this have you taken up any sport or habit that helps you maintain body?
I used to play basketball but now I don't get time to play any sport.
According to you, how important is it to follow a fitness regime?
Very important. A fitness regime not only helps you look good but also to be on top form physically and mentally.
Do you at all make excuses to go to gym?
No no, not at all. I sincerely try to go to gym at every possible opportunity.
What's your usual diet?
Morning breakfast consists of double toned milk poured over muesli. Lunch is basically chicken with chapattis. Dinner is veggies with chapattis. Sometimes I indulge in sweets but make up for it later with extra workout.
Do you look upon calories when it comes to eating?
No like I said, I do indulge myself at times but make sure I work harder for it in the gym.
What do you do to keep yourself motivated towards your workout schedule?
I want to look good, not just for vain reasons but because it's a part and parcel of my job. As an actor I want to give my 100% to the work I do, and that includes looking good!
Do you equate fitness with the shape of the body?
There is a relation to some extent. However, if you're obese or lean you can be fit. That's human nature. And even if your body is toned you could be hollow from inside.
