He’s gearing up to show off his body beautiful in the Kya Kool Hain Hum sequel that flags off this month. “I’m on a high-protein diet that entails six to seven meals a day along with rigorous workouts,” says Tusshar Kapoor, who plays a small-time model who comes on late night tele shopping shows to sell ab machines, and so needs to be toned up not only to look the part but in readiness for the big Bollywood break that’s just around the corner.

He says, “This guy is one of those typical upcoming actors you see hanging around in the suburbs in tight jeans and tees

jisse hero banna hai

(who wants to be a hero). He’s someone who would do push-ups in public to catch the eye. And his look has been modelled on Salman Khan’s from Karan Arjun.”

The Sachin Yardi directed sex-comedy that also stars Ritesh Deshmukh, Bipasha Basu, Neha Sharma and Sarah Jane Dias, is expected to be completed by April. Meanwhile, Tusshar has been busy with Char Din Ki Chandni in Jodhpur. Like Abhay Deol’s Rock On Shaadi, Samir Karnik’s rom-com also revolves around a wedding but this one has no zombines, only royals and gypsies.

“I play the cool, modern, foreign-returned scion of a royal family in Rajasthan, who falls in love with a ‘


’ (a gypsy girl played by Kundeep Randhawa), and has just four days to fit her into his traditional, class-conscious family,” says the actor.

And what about his own marriage plans given that Tusshar will turn 35 on November 20? “That’s not at the top of the mind right now but yes, I’ve finally moved into my own place. I had a quiet, simple celebration there with a couple of close friends on Diwali before dropping in at my parents’ bungalow to say hello to their guests, like a good boy,” Tusshar chuckles, adding that many of these guests were wondering how he could be late for his own party.

While he insists that his parents’ bungalow will always be home, Tusshar’s thrilled to have his own place too. “Being on an outdoor shoot can spoil you since you get used to

having a room to yourself and being on your own,” he points out, saying that his architect was told to keep his pad simple and minimalist. “There a lot of white and steel. It’s a guy’s place.”
