Armaan Jain, Bollywood's new kid on the block, says he doesn't have the perfect six-pack abs but he follows a regular workout regimen.
Most newcomers in tinsel town come with a perfect physique complete with the six-pack. Does Armaan aim for it too?
"I've got a family pack! There is no six-pack. If (in a film) my character demands, I will work on my body. But I am into sports. I work out daily for two hours besides playing football, cricket and tennis," Armaan said.

He is making his debut with Arif Ali-directed Lekar Hum Deewana Dil, which also features Deeksha Seth.
Before facing the camera, Armaan has had a taste of filmmaking when he assisted filmmaker Karan Johar.
"I assisted Karan Johar for three years - during My Name is Khan, Ek Main Aur Ekk Tu and Student Of The Year. I got very influenced by his direction. I am fascinated with the art of filmmaking. I didn't go to Karan with the idea that he would launch me...but I went to learn direction," he said.
Armaan also misses working as an assistant.
"I wish I could go back on the set. I was purely into acting (initially), but when I started learning direction, I got interested in it. I made short films as well, and now I have developed a new passion for direction," added the youngster, who happens to be the cousin of actor Ranbir Kapoor.
