Farhaan Akhtar gets fat-free at 43... here’s how you can too!

Fitness is something you do for yourself and for your loved ones, says the 43-year-old actor, and shows us how age is really just a number

We meet Farhan Akhtar at his Santa Cruz office. Dressed in a casual T-shirt and jeans, the 43-year-old actor doesn’t really look like a college kid, but Farhan is in supreme physical form. He looks fitter than ever. So much so that he might give his friend and co-star, Hrithik Roshan, a tough competition for the ‘Bollywood’s Greek God’ title!

According to Farhan, his present physical form is the result of his decision to take fitness seriously a decade back (Errikos Andreou at DEU: Creative Management)

I have not been able to go back to the way I used to eat or drink before I started training for the film (Bhaag Milkha...).Working on the movie made me realise the true meaning of fitness and the value of getting enough rest.
The rigorous training and strict diet that Farhan was on while shooting Bhaag Milkha Bhaag has had some very positive and sustained side effects on him (Here Farhan wears underwear by Paul Smith) (Errikos Andreou at DEU: Creative Management)

Even when I am shooting outside Mumbai, I’m very particular about what I eat and when I have my meals. I make sure I keep myself miles away from the catering area so that the wafting aroma of the biryani doesn’t tempt me.
According to Farhan Akhtar, being healthy is not just about building a body, it is a lifestyle that manifests itself in your general outlook (Farhan wears a bracelet and ring from The Source, Bandra) (Errikos Andreou at DEU: Creative Management)

I can’t play a random rich guy called Vicky Malhotra who drives some posh car. I need to understand where the character is coming from, and also where he is going in the film
