Speaking with the publication, Kartik Aaryan said he used to work out twice or thrice a day and it also included a sport that he used to play. The actor recalled he used to have a swimming session or a boxing session in a day added to the regular weight training.

"And there was a physiotherapy session because your body is like a pit stop; you need to rejuvenate again and again. I had several injuries later. I had to take physiotherapy so that my body doesn’t get tired of excessive training," he said. 

Kartik further mentioned he had to follow an extensive diet plan as well. For the actor, it was the most difficult part because he is a foodie. The actor thought he would never be able to sustain that to leave everything aside and continue the same routine for a couple of years.
