My dad [Shekhar Suman] was at all times match, even earlier than his [dramatic] bodily transformation in 2009. And whereas I had misplaced weight earlier than that, I learnt the worth of consistency from him. When he misplaced weight, no person anticipated him to do one thing like that, particularly at that age. People thought he had taken steroids, or gone beneath the knife. But he hadn’t. That he by no means gave up on his journey is wonderful. I really feel proud to be the son of somebody who’s match and anxious about his well being. 
He taught me that consistency is vital. No matter how busy he was, he can be discovered within the fitness center, when it was time, even when he wasn’t feeling as much as it. His focus would by no means waver, and that’s one thing I learnt from him. 
I admit that I did resort to consuming steroids for a movie in 2013. There had been pressures from the business, and my trainers, so I took them. It harmed me, and I stated I’d by no means take the straightforward method to construct my physique once more. That’s one thing I focus on with him. My dad feels I exert myself manner an excessive amount of. There can be days when I would get up and apply spinning for 40 minutes, then elevate weights, play tennis, swim and do martial arts. He’d warn me stating that my physique would cease responding if I didn’t [revisit] my routine. 
I wished arms as massive as his: Karan Deol

My dad’s [Sunny Deol] coaching routine was at all times very intense. He would get up at 5.30 am and train. Often, he would attempt to wake me as much as accompany him. If he had a protracted day of capturing, he’d come dwelling and prepare earlier than hitting the mattress. He had an actual love for sports activities and would play badminton. From an early age, I was impressed by him, as a result of he did actions that made him really feel good, not simply look good. He did it as a result of it helped the physique keep energetic, and the thoughts, sharp. For a bit, I tried to [wake up] and be taught karate, however the course of would depart me exhausted at school, so I might solely maintain it for some time. However, I took to sports activities at school. 
When I was youthful, I would inform him that I wished to elevate weights which had been as heavy as he did. I wished arms as massive as his. I’d take a look at his physique and be motivated. I would arm wrestle with him, and whereas in fact I didn’t stand an opportunity to win, he’d let me win anyway. When I turned 18, I wished to hit the fitness center, and took to CrossFit. I skilled with him for some time earlier than appointing a coach. Today, if I don’t get up within the morning and train for 3 hours, I really feel like my day received’t be good.

I’m studying boxing for Apne 2 as a result of my character is a boxer. In the method, I began to take pleasure in boxing and discover the drills thrilling. 
I’ve not been seen [in this physique], so this movie will showcase my bodily and psychological transformation to seem like a heavy-weight boxer. The one factor that I’ve learnt is which you can’t get up saying you’re feeling drained. Your thoughts will attempt to persuade you to take a break, however every day that you just don’t hearken to it and head for the coaching is a day of development.
