Ac­tor Mo­ham­mad Nazim (right), who shot to in­stant fame with his role of Ahem in the re­cent­ly­con­cluded TV show, Saath Nib­hana Saathiya, is en­joy­ing a break from tele­vi­sion. And, guess how is he mak­ing the most of his time off ? By fo­cus­ing on fit­ness.

“I’ve been work­ing con­tin­u­ously for seven years for my show. It’s time to work on my­self now... I’m plan­ning to open a gym and start dance classes. This way, I will aim to make more peo­ple aware of how im­por­tant it is to main­tain one’s health,” says the 33-year-old ac­tor.

On the pro­fes­sional front, Nazim is hope­ful of shift­ing from tele­vi­sion to films. In talks to star in Pun­jabi films, he says, “My first choice would be to do an ac­tion flick in which I get to do a lot of stunts.”

The ac­tor adds that he’s of­ten told that show­biz is an easy pro­fes­sion, but he doesn’t agree. Nazim, in fact, thinks it’s quite tough to get into this line.

“You can have a lot of ex­pe­ri­ence, and even have a the­atre back­ground, but when act­ing on­screen, the tech­ni­cal as­pects come into play. Your face has to be cam­era-friendly. Per­son­ally, I had a lot of prob­lem with Hindi dic­tion, since my speech had heavy Pun­jabi in­flu­ence. I would in­vari­ably end up shoot­ing my scenes again be­cause of that,” he says.
