Ac­tor Ar­jun Kapoor isa huge in­spi­ra­tion for those strug­gling with weight. From be­ing a self-con­fessed ‘proud fat kid’ to now sport­ing a lean look — it’s the 32-year-old’s hard work that has paid off.

Ar­jun re­cently graced the launch of Fit by Ravis­sant in Delhi, a gym with well-trained train­ers and lat­est equip­ment. Ac­tors Chunky Pan­day, San­jay Kapoor and jewellery de­signer Rid­dhima Kapoor Sahni were spot­ted at the do. Malini Chawla Sai­gal, di­rec­tor of Fit by Ravis­sant, said: “I can’t do with­out fit­ness! We are known for per­fec­tion, thus, we have equip­ment that’s not avail­able any­where else in Delhi. Since the fit­ness sec­tor is go­ing to new heights, we thought: Why not be a part of it?”

Ar­jun, happy with the set-up and vibe of the place, said, “I am very happy to see the pi­lates ma­chine, be­cause I have been do­ing a lot of it my­self. It is pop­u­lar in Mum­bai, but it seems to have caught on with Del­hi­ites, too. But, hav­ing the best equip­ments isn’t enough — hav­ing good peo­ple around is what makes for a good gym.”

The ac­tor, who con­sid­ers ac­tors Varun Dhawan and Hrithik Roshan to be “the fittest celebs in Bol­ly­wood,” said, “When I walked in, I could sense the train­ers are go­ing to be good, too. There are also a lot of dif­fer­ent work­outs like kick­box­ing and TRX, a new ma­chine which re­quires you to use all your body strength.” What about his fit­ness rou­tine? “Some­times, I get to do two full ses­sions, but at other times, not even 45 min­utes. My trainer is cur­rently mak­ing me do pushups, pull-ups, tread­mill and squats.”
