A Peek Into The Fitness Regimen Of The Man Who Played Khilji's Slave, Aka, Jim Sarbh
Jim Sarbh feels that feeling good is more important than pushing yourself to exercise rigorously for that 1 inch that no one cares about!
Jim Sarbh believes in focusing on the quality of workout he does
- Jim Sarbh loves beer and pizza, and is a vegetarian
- Sarbh is also a football enthusiast
- Frequency of his workouts in a week depends on his schedules
Those who have watched "Padmaavat" cannot help but be in awe of actor Jim Sarbh, who plays the role of a slave bought for fulfilling Khilji's desire in the film. The actor, while still underpraised, delivers a performance which is surprisingly strong and promising in the movie's recently released song "Binte Dil" as well. Sarbh, who is so far only 4 movies old in Bollywood, has a unique personality and fitness quotient that makes him stand out in the crowd with quite perfection.
Ask him the secret behind his fitness and the actor jokingly responds, "Haha... my health and fitness? Beer and pizza..."
Keeping it straight and simple, he adds, "I exercise. I stretch. I play football. I have protein shakes to supplement. I drink beer and I eat pizza. I'm a vegetarian. That's about the whole story!"
Sarbh feels that control of breath, flexibility and stamina are the 3 most important things to keep in mind for an actor. Playing some kind of sports is also an important part of his fitness regime. Some time ago, he even took to Instagram to share a video of him working out with a Kettlebell.
Training under the assistance of trainer Varoon Vesuna, who Sarbh feels "is the best", the actor follows a fitness regimen in a way that his body is able to listen to him with ease.
Speaking about how many times he works out in a week, he mentions that it depends on that particular week and his work schedule in that week. "If I'm free and feeling healthy, I might workout 5 times in a week (this does not include football). On times when I'm unwell or too busy, I don't workout more than 3 times in a week," he says.
His workout regimen also depends on the role that he is playing. This means that physically demanding roles will need more frequent workouts and vice versa.
But whatever the case maybe, it is feeling good that matters, according to Sarbh. "Feeling good is more important than some 1 inch that nobody truly cares about," explains the "Raabta" actor.
Along with drinking lots of water, he includes lots of fruits, coconut water, and date smoothie in his diet. He also combines his workouts with a few supplements of vitamins like Vitamin C, multivitamins and Spirulina.
