It’s very important to be physically fit to sustain in Bollywood. The lifestyle of people working in the movie industry does not have a fixed schedule to work like other office jobs and actors need to work odd hours for long times while shooting a movie. So it’s very important to be fit and fine to sustain in Bollywood. Today we will discuss about seven actors who are quite fit physically even after crossing the age of fifty.
Salman Khan without an iota of doubt is the biggest superstar of India at present who is known more for his looks and body than his acting skills. In fact, Salman Khan is the actor who made bodybuilding famous in Bollywood by showing off his body in many movies like Veergati and Pyaar Kia toh Darna kya. He was the first actor in Bollywood who did a full song being topless and showed his chiseled body to the audience. Not only Bollywood, but he inspired a whole generation to hit the gym and at the age of 56, he is still one of the fittest actors in Bollywood.
Akshay Kumar known as the khiladi of Bollywood has always been a fit actor from his earliest days. He does not necessarily carry a 6 pack abs but a fit body does not mean it either. Being a martial art instructor and a black belt himself, he always has been a disciplined man who follows a strict schedule. He does not work for more than eight hours a day and takes an off on Sundays. He does not have any vices like drinking and smoking and he sleeps at ten at the night and wakes up at five in the morning and hit the gym.
You might have seen many memes and jokes about Anil Kapoor that he is ageing backward and looks the same as he was twenty years ago. Anil Kapoor is never known for having a chiseled, Greek God type body but he has always been a fit actor and maintains a strict training schedule to maintain his body. Recently in an interview, he said that he follows a strict diet routine and works out for at least 1-2 hours to remain fit and fine.
Sanjay Dutt along with Salman Khan brought the gym culture to Bollywood. Before them barring a few, actors were not known to be physically fit or go to the gym. Sanjay Dutt has gone through a drug period and after getting out of his addiction, he decided to work on his body. He was quite famous for his body in the early 90s but there came a major setback in his where he was jailed for keeping unlicensed weapons with him. He spent around one and a half years in the gym but there also he did regular exercise manually. Today he is sixty plus but still he is quite fit and maintained his body quite well.
Aamir Khan is an actor who physically transforms his looks and physique according to the character he is playing and except for the character of old Mahavir Phogat in Dangal, he had to maintain a fit body for the roles he was doing like Ghajini and Dhoom 3. Even for Dangal, he had to work hard to get the physique of a national-level wrestling player while playing the younger Mahavir Phogat. He used to work out for around nine hours a day to get a well-shaped body. He made a six-pack abs body for Ghajini, a first of its kind in Bollywood. He remains one of the fittest actors in Bollywood.
Sunny Deol is the son of the original He-Man of Bollywood; superstar Dharmendra and Sunny had to carry on the legacy of his father. He made his debut in the 80s when most of the actors had normal bodies and no one is known for their physique. Then comes Sunny Deol who was one of the earliest actors to show his body on screen. He always carried a very desi body and not someone who made his body by sweating it out in gyms. His body is quite natural and even today when he is sixty plus, has a fit and fine body.
The interesting thing about Suniel Shetty is that many find his looks and body sexier than when he was young in the 90s and early 2000s. He works out regularly and doesn’t have any bad habits. He debuted with the movie Balwan when he first time shows his well-maintained body. He did many action movies that required him to keep a physique that will be believable when he is beating five bad guys alone. With age, he grew like a fine wine and still carries a fit and fine body.
