Aamir Khan is so intent on acquiring a chiseled set of six-pack abs that he has taken personal instructor Satyajit Desai with him to Namibia (Africa). Aamir is currently in Namibia shooting two songs for A R Murugadoss' Hindi remake of Ghajini.
Says Satya from Namibia, "I've been here for the last eight days. He insisted that I come with him as he wanted to maintain his fitness regime. I have to monitor his weight every day and regulate his workouts. We make it a point to work out for an hour at least every day.
According to Desai, Aamir has already achieved his dream physique. He says, "Aamir is looking superb! He has achieved his dream weight of 68 kilos and now wants to maintain it." Over the last six months, Aamir has lost 11 kgs to achieve a lean physique for his role in the remake of Ghajini. "Right now, Aamir is shooting a song with Asin," informs Desai. "They're shooting in the jungles, and it's not hot at all. It's winter in Namibia, so it's actually very cold."
Desai plans to return to Mumbai on Wednesday. Currently, he is in the process of setting up a mini-gym for Aamir in his hotel room and working out a diet chart for the actor to follow till he returns home.
