I work out at a gym in London, and in Mumbai, I have a set up at home where I can work out. I work hard to maintain myself and remain fit. It is not only my body, I also focus on my overall well-being. I sleep at 9 pm and wake up at 6 am. I am very particular about my appearance because I don’t want to disappoint my fans.”
