Who would have known that there will be a time when the entire nation will be under lockdown, in fact, the entire world will be on a halt? We guess none of us! For all our life, we learned to stay busy, to keep doing one thing or other or basically we all were hustling in our lives and strived to keep work and life balance. Now, that we all have that much-awaited break, we all wished for, we are not happy. We all had wished for a day when we will be free and learn new things, and now that we have all the time in the world, we are basically bored. While we laze around and create a fuss, Bollywood actor, Anil Kapoor has made a huge deal out of the lockdown. Scroll down to know more!

Anil Kapoor seems to be ageing backwards and is indeed one of the fittest actors of the Bollywood industry. One look at his picture and you sure cannot guess his age. And damn! Who would say that the 63-year-old actor is a father of three kids? Anil makes sure that he follows a disciplined diet, avoiding sugar, junk food and adding lots of dairy products in his diet. He also goes to bed by 11 p.m. which also adds to a disciplined life. Now, the actor has shared his fitness mantra with his fans, who desperately wanted to know the reason for his ageing backwards.
On April 25, 2020, Anil Kapoor took to his Instagram handle to share a series of photos flaunting his biceps and good looks, wearing a black Nike t-shirt with black joggers. Along with the pictures, he shared his fitness regime and wrote, “I made this post not to show off or talk myself up, but to pass on some simple advice on. When it comes to body building, nothing is beyond us. At different ages we can work differently to achieve great results. If you're asking if you need to spend a lot of money on supplements to achieve this, the answer is no. I have not taken any kind of supplements in this process.”
Anil also shared how he and his trainer, Marc has been planning to build this body for the past 6 years and how he used the lockdown phase to do the things he always wished for. He added, “My trainer Marc and I have been talking about doing this kind of rebuild of my body for as many years as we have been together, which is 6 years! Time was always a stumbling block, or filming requirements, endorsements, social obligations or family time. Every year we would say we - this year for sure. Now in these very difficult circumstances, time is something we all seem to have a great deal of, so why not use this time to do the things you always promised yourself you would do. Strengthen your body, build muscle, build immunity, build flexibility. Respect your body. We might never have this much time available to us ever again.”
It was not just Anil Kapoor’s fitness regime and motivation to make the right use of the lockdown that grabbed everyone’s attention, but also his son-in-law and Sonam Kapoor’s darling husband, Anand Ahuja’s comment that got some limelight. Like a perfect son-in-law, Anand agreed with his father-in-law, Anil Kapoor’s fitness regime and commented, “Truthhhh. Control what you can and never stop giving your absolute best!” Take a look.

Anil Kapoor’s daughter Rhea Kapoor, who is a known producer and fashion stylist in Bollywood, also shared her father’s similar pictures stating how proud she is of him and how she is maintaining a balance in their family. Along with the pictures, she wrote, “Ugh. Parents. Always throwing their biceps in your face, am I right? Meanwhile, I am googling biryani recipes. And that, my friends, is what we call balance. #hes63 #proudofhim #stillgonnanaptho.” Take a look.
