Actor-producer Anil Kapoor, 58, maintains a very strict exercise regimen, so he can stay young and fit enough to romance Bollywood heroines, such as Katrina Kaif. In his upcoming movie “Dil Dhadakne Do,” Kapoor plays a young and stylish dad.

MUMBAI: Anil Kapoor is known to be very strict when it comes to his exercise regimen, which explains how he looks young and fit enough to serenade heroines like Katrina Kaif, who started out over two decades after him.

When Zoya Akhtar and the entire cast of his 'Dil Dhadakne Do' were shooting extensively on a cruise, there were a lot of late-night parties. But Anil Kapoor never stayed up late at the cost of losing sleep despite being teased by his co-stars and unit.

Kapoor is more of a morning person like Akshay Kumar and Suniel Shetty, and this is one of the prime reasons for his fitness, a maxim followed now even by older stars like Dharmendra and Rishi Kapoor.

He plays the father of two current stars for the first time in this movie and comes across as one of the youngest and most stylish dads ever seen in our movies. The actor’s unusually young (for his age) looks were first seen in films like 'Welcome,' 'Black-And-White' and 'Yuvraaj' seven years ago. In his lead career, which began in 1982 with the small film 'Rachna,' not only has he romanced older heroines like Rekha and Smita Patil but also young ones, such as Kareena Kapoor Khan, Lara Dutta, Mallika Sherawat and Bipasha Basu. 

Way to go, 'dad!'
