1. What does fitness mean to you?
To me, fitness means being happy from within and feeling healthy. No matter what activity you do, be it running or exercising, it is bound to make you fitter if it gives you a sense of satisfaction. The body must be free from diseases and any extra amount of fat or cholesterol, and I strongly believe that the person who feels healthy and is super-charged is always fit.
2. How do you keep a healthy balance between your mind and your body?
I always try to keep a tab on the portion of whatever I eat. A healthy and balanced diet is crucial as our bodies need several nutrients to stay fit,
3. Following your demanding and hectic routine, how do you manage to stay fit and maintain a healthy lifestyle?
I always keep my diet according to my workload and schedule and never try to maintain any hardcore diet for my fitness. I give my body the right amount of fuel it needs. Whenever I am shooting an action sequence, I fuel myself with a heavy breakfast and lunch and, more importantly keep my body hydrated by drinking lots of water.
4. What is your ideal workout regime?
For me, an ideal workout is something that charges me up and energizes me to the fullest, other than making me tired. I generally donâ€™t work out daily since I have a very hectic schedule at shoots. It is 3-4 days a week that I try to catch up with my workout session. I believe in an effective workout and try to efficiently follow it rather than working out for longer sessions.
5. Your roles require you to maintain a fit body, what did you incorporate in your fitness regime?
Before this show, I used to do more weightlifting and body-building workouts. In my current role in show Hero-Gayab Mode On, I am playing a stuntman and I need to look fit as an athlete. Hence, I have incorporated skipping, cardio and running, martial arts, and acrobats, which helps me cut lots of fat from my body.
6. Any quick healthy snack that you rely on during your busy days?
A quick healthy snack for me is my Protein bar and a Protein shake. Sometimes, I love Paani- Puri and I canâ€™t resist it. (laughs)
7. What kind of music do you like listening to while you work out?
I like upbeat music and adrenaline rushing music during the workouts.
8. What motivates you towards fitness?
I donâ€™t feel the need for any motivation to remain fit. Staying healthy means that a lot of medical expenses can be taken care of (laughs). Being fit for me is very necessary, and everyone should realize its importance on their own, instead of someone else motivating you.
9. Any Fitness tips for your fans?
The only tip for my fans is to everything they desire but always in control. One should always eat according to the workload and daily schedule.
