Actor Surya is gearing up for the release of his next venture Vaaranam Aayiram directed by Gautham Menon. One of the requirements of the script where his screen age spans 17 to 65 years, was a well toned physique. Stickler for perfection that he is, Surya got into the act and began working out for 8 months under the strict supervision of a skilled trainer. The result is a Surya with lean, muscular body and a six pack.
The first hero in Tamil Cinema to train hard and achieve the elusive six pack abs, Surya reveals, "It was the character and the script, which inspired me to work towards achieving this lean, muscular look and a six pack. I felt it would lend more credibility to the character I am playing."
Surya cautions," It requires a careful monitoring of diet and exercise by a skilled, professional trainer."
Surya plays dual role in this film and Simran, Sameera Reddy and Ramya (Divya) share the screen for lead role. Even as we wait to see the new Surya on screen, let us hope his achievement serves as an inspiration to his fans to eat healthy and stay fit!
