Actor Anas Rashid, best known for his role as Sooraj Rathi in popular soap opera “Diya Aur Baati Hum”, will be seen showing off his kabaddi skills in the upcoming sequence of the show. The 34-year-old says he has “fond memories” of the indigenous sport.
Anas has hired a personal trainer and is giving extra hours in gym to look his part in the Kabaddi sequence.
“I have fond memories of playing Kabaddi with my friends. My love for the sport made me follow the Kabaddi tournament last year and I’m glad that I can show off my skills on TV now,” Anas said in a statement.
“My trainer overlooks my workout and has designed this nutritious diet for me which I have to follow to build up my stamina,” he added.
Also, Anas has cut down on his night outs to get his eight hours of sleep.
He said: “My friends have been calling me up every night, badgering me to go out with them but I really can’t. This Kabaddi match is one of the biggest tracks on the show and I want it to turn out right.”
“Diya Aur Baati Hum” is aired on Star Plus.
