Shekhar Suman has been hitting headlines ever since the news of his popular sitcom Dekh Bhai Dekh making a rerun began doing rounds. But what has caught our attention is a rather interesting confession that the actor has made about celebrities like Hrithik Roshan and Shah Rukh Khan calling him.
The 57-year-old actor turned heads when he flaunted his well-chiselled body with toned muscles and six-pack abs. Opening up about his physical transformation, Suman has revealed, “I wanted to be fitter. I decided to look after my health and around the same time, I was coming up with a music album where I was pitted opposite Bruna Abdulha who was half of my age. She was my heroine and I needed to look fitter and match-up to her on-screen. One day I just got up and I said I needed to have my six-pack abs, triceps and biceps and I started working out. I wanted to see if I could take up fitness and maintain it. I like taking challenges and I took this up. Then I never looked back.”
He further told TOI, “I remember when I started doing it, I went with full force working out and maintaining a strict diet. I would start the gym and would lock it also. There were so many people from Bollywood who used to come there. There was Saif Ali Khan, Ajay Devgn who came in the same gym. When I suddenly made that body everyone complimented me. I got a call from Shah Rukh Khan, Hrithik Roshan, Anil Ambani and they asked who was my trainer and it became a talk of the town. They asked me who’s my trainer. I didn’t realize that it was such a big deal.”
Talking about Dekh Bhai Dekh, along with Shekhar Suman, the popular sitcom has an impressive cast of actors like Deven Bhojani, Urvashi Dholakia, Amar Upadhyay, Bhavana Balsavar and Navin Nischol among others.
