Actor Sharad Kelkar who is known for his crazy fitness regime recently had to get into character in more ways than one. Sharad who plays the negative lead in ‘Bhoomi’, had to smoke for his character. For one of the intense scenes that required the nicotine stick in his mouth, it seems quite a few packs were used.
Next morning he ended up spitting some blood and was rushed to a doctor in Agra, who told him to stop smoking. But, being the dedicated actor that he is, he knew he couldn’t immediately. Now that the schedule is over – he has gotten on a strict detox diet.
His strict diet consist of green leafy vegetables and raw fruit juices. He has doubled his water intake which includes green tea, coconut water and vegetable juices. Cardio is also playing a major role for him as he has now turned to outdoor jogging. When asked Sharad, he says
”Smoking is very injurious to health and I had to smoke 80 cigarettes a day for the film as I always tend to give my 100% but now I am taking it out from my system”.
