The male actors on Ekta’s Kahaani Hamaaray Mahaabhaarat Ki reveal their workout routines


The actors in Ekta Kapoor’s epic soap Kahaani Hamaaray Mahaabhaarat Ki on 9X say they had to hit the gym regularly and work out hard to suit their macho roles in the period drama. Actor Ronit Roy, who plays Bhishma Pitamah in the new technologically enhanced version of the epic Mahabharat, has a strict fitness regime and claims no actor has been working harder than him to get into shape.

“I started with training for three hours a day and now I work out for about two hours every day,” Ronit says. “I have worked extremely hard on my physique, in fact nobody has worked harder than me.” Chetan Hansraj, known for his welltoned, tall and broad body frame, plays the role of Bheem, considered the most powerful of the Pandavas. Even he vouches for the fact that Ronit worked really hard on his body.

Chetan also follows a strict training and diet routine. “It took me almost four months of training and nutritional control to get into shape for the role. I have also been on a high protein, low carbohydrate diet. I had to stop my intake of cheese and rice and my diet mainly constituted of chicken with other supplements,” reveals the actor. Although he isn’t much of a workout person, Chetan, who played the negative role of Sasha in Kahaanii Ghar Ghar Kii, had to drag himself to the gym. “It has been very difficult for me because I’m a very lazy person,” he confesses.

Compared to other members of the team, model-turned-actor Aryan Vaid, who essays the role of Duryodhan, says he didn’t have to work too hard. “I haven’t put in any special efforts in terms of physique, neither did I change my diet. I think I was already in good shape and I guess that’s the reason why the producers cast me,” says he and adds that working out has become a habit for him now. “I generally workout for one-and a-half hours in a day and I have been working out for the past 16 years,” he says.

Actor Harshad Chopra, who is also a fitness freak like Aryan, plays Arjun in the mega serial. “I have always been a fitness freak. My workouts have been more or less the same,” he maintains. Harshad said bagging the role of Arjun just motivated him to continue his workouts. “When I was offered the role, I knew that I would have to wear period costumes and appear semi-nude on screen for the role, so I had to look good and couldn’t have compromised on the physique. It was almost like a new motivation for me to keep fit, ” he said. Kahaani Hamaare Mahaabhaarat Ki is one of Ekta’s most expensive and lavishly produced shows on television with spectacular sets and designer costumes. It has an array of popular TV stars including actresses Sakshi Tanwar and Anita Hanssanandani.
