Delhi smog forces Richa to workout indoors

Mumbai– The Delhi smog is keeping actress Richa Chadha, who is in the capital city to shoot “Fukrey Returns”, away from her morning exercise routine outdoors. But she has found indoor alternatives for her fitness.

Richa loves outdoor fitness routines, but because of weather conditions, she has opted for yoga and other indoor fitness options that can keep her healthy and happy at the same time.

Talking about it, Richa said in a statement: “It’s winter and the smog just gets a whole lot worse at this time. I had to find a cardio substitute, so I joined a regular gym near my hotel. It’s funny because suddenly people realize that the girl lifting weights next to them is in the movies.

“But mostly people politely come and say ‘Hello’. I am sad that the city I grew up in doesn’t look like what it used to with parks and greenery.”

Akshay Kumar keen to play Dara Singh in biopic

Mumbai–Bollywood star Akshay Kumar on Saturday expressed his desire to play legendary wrestler and actor Dara Singh onscreen if a biopic is ever made on the late icon.

At the launch of “Deedara Aka Dara Singh”, a book based on Dara Singh’s life, written by Seema Sonik Alimchand, Akshay said: “If Bindu (Dara Singh’s son) requests me, I would like to play the role of Dara Singh in his biopic.”

Akshay, who is fit as a fiddle at 49, also spoke about the kind of preparation he might have to go through to portray the role.

“Dara Singh was a huge man and I have to justify his appearance. I need at least two years to put on that kind of bulk and look like a wrestler,” he said.

On the professional front, Akshay will be seen next in a science fiction film “2.0”, written and directed by Shankar. The film, which features megastar Rajinikanth and actress Amy Jackson, is slated to release next year.
