Actor Karan Tacker likes to keep fit through yoga and swimming

“Healthy mind is the source of a healthy physique,” says Karan Tacker, a television actor known for his role in Ek Hazaaron Mein Meri Behna Hai.

The actor says he is not choosy when it comes to food, and does not observe a strict diet. He eats whatever he likes. “Light food is the best thing to keep body active,” he says with a content smile, adding that though he likes both vegetarian and non-vegetarian fare, he leans towards home made food.

“I am a gym lover and regularly spend my time in gym, and this is my basic mantra — to be active all day long,” Tacker says, adding yoga keeps him energetic and active. “It keeps you mentally peaceful too.”

Emphasising the virtues of swimming, he says, “It is also a good option for exercise…Whenever I get time, I just do swimming.” Asked about his fitness mantra, he says “Be happy and smile”.

Tacker is now hosting Halla Bol, which airs on Bindass every Friday. The 13-episode-long serial is a youth oriented show about women who have fought against eve-teasing and sexual harassment. Based on real life incidents, it features a youth icon in every episode based on real life incidents. “It creates awareness not only among women but also makes men more responsible towards women and society. It’s also my way of contributing to the society,” says Karan.
