In an exclusive interview with Bollywood Hungama, Bobby Deol revealed that ever since Race 3, which was released in 2018, he has maintained a healthy lifestyle. He said, “I started working out, like really working out seriously, when I was offered Race 3. From then on it has been six years and I have been on it. I always told myself that ‘you have to be prepared, you have to be fit because anybody can come knocking on your door.’”
He added, “It is a really big sacrifice to make because I love food and I don’t think right and wrong when I am eating. But I had to control my diet. For maintaining a good physique, 70 percent is your diet and 30 percent is your workout. I really trained hard and two months before shooting Animal, I went off-carbs completely. I only had a protein and veggies-rich diet. I would do cardio both morning and evening and would also work out in between that. I would spend three hours in the gym in a day because I had to train for that period. I was always exhausted but I kept pushing myself.”
Bobby further said, “I am not a foodie. I like simple food. I love ghar ka makhan [homemade butter]. I don’t get up and think about aloo parathas and lassi. I grew up on a vegetarian diet because in my house only vegetarian food was made. But I indulge sometimes, who wouldn’t love an aloo ka paratha? I prefer aloo ka paratha over pizza but you shouldn’t eat carbs I feel. I have to maintain this physique because every other person wants me to remove my shirt.”
Meanwhile, Bobby Deol will next star in Red Chillies Productions’ web series which is being co-written by Aryan Khan.
