Exclusive: Tamanna heartthrob Vishal Gandhi talks all things fitness!

You may know him as the cool dude Kabir of Pyaar Kii Yeh Ek Kahanii or the adorable Aniket of Ek Dusre Se Karte Hai Pyaar Hum but the present day Vishal Gandhi is a new man entirely.

Now back as Mihir on Star Plus’ novelty show Tamanna, Vishal is ready to flaunt his new and improved macho man avatar. When we ask him what his secret to a healthy lifestyle is the actor stated,

“There is no secret, it’s sheer dedication. Today, people are so bogged down with their busy schedules, family life and work that they forget to manage their own health and the only way to tackle the issue is discipline. It is important to remain healthy and the best way of doing so is taking a set 45 minutes or an hour for oneself and simply work out.”

So is it just exercise alone?

“Well exercise is part of a healthy lifestyle but one also needs proper rest and a proper diet.”

Speaking on the drastic change between his previous characters and Mihir, Vishal stated,

“Yeah, romantic hero, chocolate boy, teenager or a boy next door image that I have in the industry has been well liked by audiences. The roles have grown on me but what happens is when you’re trying to do something different, people still recognize you in the form of your previous characters. In a way it is good to be recognized as your character but the reality is as an actor you need to be versatile and challenge oneself. With Mihir, I want to break my chocolate boy image and hopefully Tamanna will help me do so.”

Tune into Tamanna to watch what Mihir is truly all about!
