Dino Morea, who is known for having a chiseled physique ever since his modeling days, rates Tiger Shroff and Akshay Kumar as the fittest actors in the Hindi film industry.
“According to me, today I definitely would think among the younger lot, it�۪s Tiger because I have played a lot of sports with him. When he was in school we used to play a lot of basketball together and I know his level of fitness. And I think he is one of the fittest kids today,” Morea told Mumbai Mirror.
He added, “In the older age bracket, Akshay Kumar is very fit. He takes his training very seriously.”
Morea has always been in talks for his physique even before the six-pack and eight-pack culture prevailed in the industry. He had gone shirtless in most of his films in early 2000s which didn’t use to be a frequest site in that era except from in case of Salman Khan. Few years later, Shah Rukh Khan also joined the league of six-pack holders with his film ‘Om Shanti Om’ (2007).
When asked about the two superstar’s fitness, he responded, “I am sure they work out, go to the gym and all. Salman right now is looking huge for his new film as a wrestler. They are fit but if you talk about extreme fitness, I’d put Tiger and Akshay first. The levels of fitness that I’m talking about, which Tiger and Akshay possess, if they (Khans) work really harder they could achieve that.”
He added, “There is a huge misconception in our industry that fitness is only a six-pack and fitness is being bulky. That’s not fitness, you need to be able to play a sport. Fitness is overall, your nutrition, your diet, your lifestyle, everything revolves around fitness.”
Leading his interest in fitness to the next level, Morea has opened free-for-all fitness stations in 15 locations in Mumbai where one can get the basic training of exercising. Shiv Sena chief Uddhav Thackeray’s son Aditya has supported Morea in the project.
