Yard long bean stir fry and Vegetable salad dressed with pepper powder are taken along with this.In the evening, he won’t take much food but often drinks black tea. In the night he eats wheat or oats dosa but he won’t eat more than three dosas. Along with dosa, he takes country (nadan) chicken curry without masala but added with coconut milk.

He is consistently training and has always been good about his fitness, gym, and diet. My mom, wife, sister, and all the family members were surprised at how good he looked and we thought he should post it. But we didn't know it would create a storm and everybody, across the industry reached out to him. It was great to see him being loved so much even for a picture and it was more like a film release.”
