Hrithik Roshan’s obsession with fitness is no secret. Turns out, it’s not restricted to just his own health and physique. The actor, who will soon start shooting for Ashutosh Gowariker’s period drama, has also taken co-star Pooja Hegde under his wing.

A source close to the actor reveals, “After the promotions and release of Bang Bang, Hrithik intends on taking a break, in which he will do the research for his period film. All the young actors today prioritise fitness and take care of their bodies. However, a period drama will require the leading lady to have a more curvy body as opposed to a size zero figure.”

The source says, “Post October, Hrithik will put her on a special eight-week, intense workout session. This is the first time he’s assisting a female co-star with something like this.”
