Ac­tor Sonu Sood (right) loves ex­er­cis­ing and has de­vel­oped a toned body af­ter rig­or­ous work­out ses­sions. The ac­tor is very par­tic­u­lar about his fit­ness and makes sure to ex­er­cise ev­ery day.

“I have been main­tain­ing my abs for 20 years. I never get into shape for a par­tic­u­lar film or a pro­ject,” says Sood, who has flaunted his fit physique in movies such as Ra­maiya Vas­tavaiya (2013), R…Ra­jku­mar (2013) and Gab­bar Is Back (2015).

“Fit­ness is part of my life. I work­out for two-anda-half to three hours ev­ery day, and don’t be­lieve in hav­ing cheat days. I fol­low a strict diet and wor­ship my body, so I have to take care of that,” he adds.

Although the 42-yearold’s friends com­plain that he spends way too much time in the gym, Sood feels that it is not enough.

“Peo­ple say that I should work­out less, which, of course, I don’t agree with. A lot of peo­ple don’t work out for three hours, seven days a week. So they are the ones who feel I should spend less time in the gym,” says Sood, adding, “Peo­ple tell me I need to be more so­cial, but I don’t agree with them. They think I should be seen in par­ties and go out with my friends, but I can’t do that as I don’t en­joy that much.”
