Actor Sharat Saxena Makes Jaws Drop With His Fitness & Dollay At The Age Of 72

Our jaws dropped when we saw Anil Kapoor first post his fitness videos wherein he was seen giving youngsters a run for their money. The 63-year-old actor is ageing like fine wine and definitely getting fitter with every passing day.

But if you were impressed by his transformation then wait until you see how veteran actor Sharat Saxena looks now.

Even though Saxena has mostly done supporting roles, his acting skills and caliber have helped him become a household name in his career spanning over 50 years. He is 72 years old, has acted in more than 250 Bollywood films, and has two kids who are now adults. Going by those numbers, no one would think that he would be hitting the gym like a boss and making a body that could make anyone jealous.

Just look at his inspirational transformation and his hill-like dollay. Can you believe he’s the man we saw acting in movies like ‘Bhagam Bhag’, ‘Badshah’, ‘Ghulam’, ‘Pyaar Ka Punchnama 2’, and ‘Singham Returns’ among others?

People online were in awe of him being so fit at this age.

But, despite being so fit, he ends up being typecast because of his muscular body. Talking about it, Hindustan Times quoted him saying:

“In India, we have this problem that if you are well-built, you cannot be a good actor. Have you noticed that? Write down the names of all the good actors in India and see how many of them are muscular.”

He also added that his dark-coloured complexion also becomes a hurdle in him getting meatier and more significant roles.

“We are the most colour conscious country in the world. If you are dark, you cannot be a hero. If you have curly hair, you can’t be a hero.”

But he said that times are changing now because of muscular celebs like Salman Khan.

“If you are muscular, then today you can be a hero. Earlier, you had to become a fighter. Today, the world has changed thanks to Salman Khan. He made being muscular fashionable. So today, every man who wants to join the film industry goes to the gym first and then to coaching classes. I joined the film industry at a time when it was the worst time for muscular people. I continued getting that kind of work because once you work as a fighter in India, it’s stuck on your forehead. So everybody wants to take you in that role.”

He’s an inspiration to many, be it for his fitness routine or his acting skills. More power to you!
