While Sushant became a popular household name with his characterisation of Manav Deshmukh in the hit TV series Pavitra Rishta, his Bollywood fame could definitely be credited to his incredible performance in his debut feature Kai Po Che, which was an adaptation of Chetan Bhagat's novel The 3 Mistakes of My Life. Other hits under his belt include Detective Byomkesh Bakshy!, PK and Shudh Desi Romance.
The good looking actor and dance reality show star has indeed come a long way. And what keeps him looking fit and fab is all the hard work he puts into his fitness regime. Yes, his well-toned body is a result of serious working out and staying active, which doesn't only include gym time but also other activities like dancing, martial arts, horse riding, tennis, etc.
Sushant's Favourite Exercises
Sushant's fitness philosophy could be best described by one of his favourite quotes, "A ship in the harbour is safe, but that is not what ships are built for." He believes in pushing himself beyond his boundaries, taking up difficult challenges. His 30-day training schedule, as posted on his Instagram handle, where he is seen preparing from his upcoming movie Raabta, shows him performing some really tough workouts "an inch at a time".
No matter how gruelling the workout, he believes in sticking it out. As he says, "'I failed' is 10 times better than 'what if'".
And that "He who thinks he can and he who thinks he can't are both usually right". We say that's some real inspiration there!
And there's no stopping him. "He has 100 reasons why I won't and I just have one why I will."
Whether he is performing crucifix pushups or triple clap pushups, the count only seems to be going up and steadily. The road to fitness is never easy and Sushant feels "it always seems impossible until it's done."
Well, now we know the hard work that's gone into Sushant Singh Rajput's chiselled look. Or is it just the beginning?
Here's Sushant Singh Rajput getting all geared up for his upcoming movie Raabta.
