Akshay Kumar, Shah Rukh Khan, Aamir Khan, Hrithik Roshan, Anil Kapoor, Suniel Shetty, and Saif Ali Khan have something in common. They look remarkable for their age (or is that an understatement?). Given their commitment to working out and adherence to a strict diet regimen — they’ve continued to sparkle year after year, movie after movie, appearance after appearance. Stylist Divyak D’Souza shares, “They have carved their own niche. They’ve continued to stay relevant and of-the-moment, no matter what.”

Most of them have followed the principle of — early to bed and early to rise — throughout their careers. In an interview with this newspaper, stylist Rhea Kapoor had shared about her dad Anil’s commitment to working out and eating right. “My mom and dad have no social lives at all. They don’t drink, eat very little and they make us feel guilty about eating and drinking. My mom enjoys a little salad and soup while my dad has a grilled fish. They go to sleep by 10.15 pm. God! So boring,” she had said. Stylist Akshay Tyagi observes that all these actors are aware that fit is the new style trend. “As long as you’re fit, everything works out,” he says.

He’s always a striking figure — whether he’s taking his boys — Hrehaan and Hridaan to the movies or chilling with them on a holiday. Hrithik’s tracksuits, leather jackets, baseball caps and sneakers bring out his sporty side and his untiring dedication to working out. When he is on the red carpet, the actor doesn’t shy away from going all out — recently he was seen in a velvet evening jacket worn with a pair of white denims and a bow tie. Towering, athletic and polished — the Roshan gene is all about turning heads and doing the balancing act — juggling work and personal life, film events and family movie outings, shoot schedules and holidays like a pro.
