Despite a hectic schedule, actor Gurmeet Chaudhary promises to get eight-pack abs soon

Actor Gurmeet Chaudhary is now working towards eight pack abs. In the past, television viewers have seen him with six pack abs but the actor is now working to achieve new heights in health. Admired for the portrayal of Ram in Ramayana as in 2008, after which he was seen in various other serials, Gurmeet will be seen soon in dance reality show Nach Baliye 6 with his wife Debina Bonnerjee. This isn’t his first association with dance. He participated in Jhalak Dikhla Ja 5, another dance reality show and went on to win it.

The actor believes that dancing and fitness go hand in hand. “Dance for actors like us is essential because despite of such hectic schedule we are not left with any time to go for any workout. If I have to practise for the show, then I end up missing my gym.” Even with his hyperactive schedule of round the clock shooting, he manages to take out some time for a workout. “This time I would come out with eight pack, previously people have seen me in six,” added the actor on a note of confidence.

But diet is an equally important element of the actor’s health regime. “But you can’t be solely dependent on the gym. I am not even looking at the appetiser kept in front of me. I do cardio every alternate day and rest of the day is weight training, and if I get time I practise action with my team at Juhu Beach,” says the actor who is a black belt in martial arts.
