After making his Kollywood debut in Billa 2, Sudhanshu Pandey will be seen fencing with Suriya in the Tamil movie Dhruva Natchathiram. He knocked off 10-15 kilos for his role. Pandey joins the list of top Bollywood names like Sonu Sood, Vidyut Jamwal and Rahul Dev who have played villains in southern cinema with aplomb. He brings us up to speed on what worked for him:
For the chiseled look: My workout regime is simple. I do weights thrice a week, followed by cardio for the next three days. I follow this routine religiously and once a week is my day off from workouts. On this day, I binge on everything I love.
Fitness regime: On a regular day it’s either weights or cardio. I divide my weights into three parts, back bicep, chest shoulder and legs. So after a 45-minute weights workout, I jog on the treadmill for about 15-20 mins.
Lunch hour: No matter how much you work out, if your diet is wrong, it doesn’t work. I start my day with a glass of water
followed by some nuts and three egg whites with fresh juice. For lunch, it is greens and vegetables and brown rice, followed by an evening snack of dry fruit. For dinner, again its brown rice and sabzi.
Golden rule: Work out religiously and keep it different. Try exercising for at least half an hour a day, it will do wonders for your body and mental well being. Do not overdo workouts, as it might cause injury.
