Bollywood’s leading action hero and fitness fanatic, Akshay Kumar, has been honoured with the coveted title of ‘Fittest Body’ by respected global media title, People Magazine, and graces the cover of the latest issue for the second time.
In 2008, Akshay walked away with the magazine’s ‘Sexiest Man Alive’ title, and it seems People cannot get enough of Indian cinema’s health and fitness icon, as he champions the newly awarded title and his second cover shot in three years. This month’s edition features people with fantastic bodies and our very own Khiladi is the epitome of the Body Beautiful. At the age of 44, Akshay can still give the younger pin-up stars a run for their money. Although he is known to be a fitness fanatic, he has never indulged himself in getting six packs or eights abs, unlike most of the industry’s actors.
In this issue of People magazine, the superstar talks about his fitness mantra which includes Kickboxing, Martial Arts, Swimming, Parkour, Yoga, Basketball, Volleyball, Cycling and Trekking. Akshay is at his modest best when he says, “I’m not what you call good looking. Our industry just happens to have excellent directors of photography.”
