Tusshar Kapoor collapsed due to exhaustion and a poor diet last week. Though he is on road to recovery, he's still weak. The actor says, "I have been advised bed rest but I intend to do a bit of dubbing for Run Bhola Run. This is the first time that I have fallen so ill. It's because of my low-carb diet. I was pushing my body to the limit."
Tusshar says he was on a diet to build a lean body for a photo shoot as he had to give body shots. "I was supposed to do it last month but the shoot kept getting postponed." He adds, "Though I have been on a similar diet before it has never been for so long. Moreover, I was playing squash too."
Tusshar did the photo shoot last Wednesday and went for dubbing later. The next day he collapsed. "I was down with a fever and cold and was also dehydrated. I was so weak that I couldn't get up from my bed till I was given medication. The doctor advised rest and said that this was the result of over-exertion and the loss of immunity. I was not even able to life my body or head."
Now Tusshar has changed his diet. "I have lots of bagel sandwiches, Mughlai and tandoori food. I am allowed to binge once in a week. I haven't started working out but I plan to begin next week."
