Guess what actor Bharath's new obsession is? Well, you guessed it right, it is body building. We at had first reported that the actor was preparing his six pack look for director Sasi’s 555 and has been hitting the gym for six hours a day. Bharat is also on a special diet and has succeeded in getting a completely muscled and toned, lean new look for the film.

Now, looks like this news has reached the ears of  the  second edition of the prestigious Sheru  Classic 2012 which is a professional Body Building Championship to be held in New Delhi this weekend. Impressed by his efforts, the organizers approached Bharath to do the honours along with several Bollywood celebs and give away trophies during the competition.

Says an elated Bharath before leaving for New Delhi, “The Sheru Classic organizers were pretty impressed that a South Indian actor had taken this kind of effort for his movie and invited me to give away prizes. In fact they even created a poster featuring me, specially for the event!”

The event is supposedly to be attended by Salman Khan, Neha Dhupia and others. Last year, Amitabh Bachchan and Sanjay Dutt were the  chief guests. Bharath adds, “I am really excited. The current Mr Olympia, Phil Heath is expected to be at the event along with ex Mr Olympia Jay Cutler. It will be a huge opportunity to share notes and meet both national and international bodybuilding champions.”

The Mr Olympia title is a professional championship held under the aegis of the International Federation of Fitness and Body Building, since 1965.
