While most actors and people who love working out prefer having loud music playing while they’re in the gym, we have wrestler turned actor, Danish Akhtar who prefers a completely different tune to be played whenever he hits the gym.
The actor who is currently seen playing the role of Hanuman in STAR Plus’s mythological saga, Siya Ke Ram apparently hears the Hanuman Chalisa on his phone while sweating it out at the gym.
Being a wrestler, Danish confesses to have been an ardent follower of the mighty Hanuman. “We as wrestlers are staunch believers of the Bajrang bali. We hear the Hanuman chalisa before entering the wrestling ring before every fight as well. I believe I was destined to play the role of Hanuman.”
Further elaborating on listening to the Hanuman chalisa while working out, Danish said, “Workout for me is like worship. I have been listening to the Hanuman chalisa since the last 4 years and now that I am playing the role of Hanuman in Siya Ke Ram, it was only befitting when I decided to listen to the song during my workout sessions as well. The tune has a serene and calming effect attached to it and it makes me feel rejuvenated to another level altogether.”
Well, Danish kudos to all the peace and calmness.
Watch Danish Akhtar as Hanuman in Siya Ke Ram from Monday to Sunday at 8 PM only on STAR Plus
