Madhavan, who is playing a boxing coach in Saala Khadoos, talks about his efforts to keep fit.

Fitness to me is: Being healthy, both mentally and physically.

My Saala Khadoos look: It’s an entirely different world - in Saala Khadoos, I am stocky, snarling and bearded. Since I am essaying the role of a boxing coach I have to be rugged. When I saw myself in Saala Khadoos, I couldn’t recognise myself!

My idea of a perfect body: You should happily be able to do all the activities that you desire to do.

My diet consists of: Eating normal vegetarian food.

My workout routine: I have no routine; it all depends on my lifestyle. I either do yoga or Pilates. Sometimes, I do weights or cardio but just enough to ensure that the strain doesn’t show on my face.

The body part I love training: I love training the upper body.

The body part I hate training: My legs.

In my opinion, the relationship between fitness and health is: Integral. Sadly, people don’t understand the relationship between both. Fitness is at the core of good health.

My best body feature: My smile.

The best compliment that I have received for my fitness: Are you 45! Really!

My fitness tip: Be happy mentally.

In my opinion the Bollywood actor with the fittest body is: Akshay Kumar … he is one guy who looks fit even at his age.

In my opinion the Bollywood actress with the fittest body is: I love the grace of Deepika Padukone. She is not into looking muscular; she is the epitome of femininity.
