The pictures of actor Tovino Thomas with chiseled abs during the shooting of his forthcoming movie Minnal Murali had gone viral.
In his latest interview with The Hindu, the young hero says a certain level of awareness about fitness is essential for every human being, on being asked how important physical fitness is for an actor.
According to him the need of fitness and the shape you have to be in depends on the characters of the movies. He says that he adjust his work out sessions accordingly.
“If I am focusing on hypertrophy (putting on muscles) now, it was for the need to bulk up for Kalki. Earlier, I had to lose weight considerably for Theevandi as my character was of a man in his 20's. I used to run a lot and was on a crash diet during that period. I am someone who remains in the character that I am playing during the entire shoot,” says Tovino.
