My fitness journey began after meeting Vivian Richards: Suniel

Thursday, April 27, 2017

Actor Suniel Shetty says he was so inspired by the physique of former West Indian cricketer Vivian Richards that he himself started working on his fitness. "My fitness journey began when I met Sir Vivian Richards. He said he got fit so that he could hit the ball harder. I was an obsessive cricketer and I wanted to play for the country. So, I started building my body. Unfortunately, I was not talented enough to play for the country," said Suniel.

The actor will be hosting upcoming reality show 'India's Asli Champion..Hai Dum!' and is currently in Goa for its shooting.

The show will be a test of physical and mental endurance where contestants from different walks of life will come together and compete for the title of 'India's Asli Champion'.

The actor says he was keen on hosting a show that promotes fitness.

"A lot of shows came to me but it required me to be a judge. I believe I am not a master to be able to judge, give an opinion or criticise anyone just because I have to. So, I have stayed away from it. I was always open about doing a show that revolves around health, fitness and travel."

The 55-year-old actor says the makers thought of roping him for the show primarily due to his deep knowledge about fitness.

"I am not just a gym guy but I understand nutritional value. Also, I am a people's person. My job is to encourage the contestants," the actor said.
