Hrithik Roshan to launch his own workout regime

Hrithik Roshan to launch his own workout regime news

Hrithik Roshan along with his fitness brand, HRX has collaborated with CureFit, a healthcare startup to launch a workout regime which is his own to be available at CureFit’s gym centers, CULT. Termed The HRX Workout, it is a specific workout which draws inspiration from the regime personally followed by Hrithik Roshan. It is designed by Hrithik in conjunction with his fitness trainer Mustafa Ahmed.

What’s interesting is that this launch would open up opportunities for all the fans of Hrithik to work towards making a body like his. Hrithik & Mustafa will be training a bunch of other trainers to impart the definite knowledge, technique and philosophy endorsed by this workout to fitness enthusiasts in CULT centers.

Mustafa shares, “Hrithik’s intent has always been to serve his fans and the people who wanted to know about his physique, fitness regime and his lifestyle to stay healthy. HRX is his higher purpose in life and through this initiative, he hopes he can share with people all his learning in the gym and living a healthy lifestyle”

Afsar Zaidi, Co-Founder of HRX said, “We are very pleased to announce our first ever fitness partnership with CULTFIT to launch the HRX workout. Our collaboration is a strategic move to grow the fitness community for our brand and use it as a launch pad to propel itself to the league of the top fitness and active lifestyle brands in the country.”

The workout seeks inspiration from animal moves, mobility, primal moves etc. It will majorly focus on improving range of motion, full body strength, and core activation. It is a three-level course which will be available for trained as well as untrained fitness lovers from the next month.

Hrithik also went on to add, "The overall idea of HRX is to inspire people of all ages to be the best version of themselves and mental and physical fitness are key factors in that context. My collaboration with CULTFIT to launch HRX workout is a very concrete step towards this objective. The idea behind this workout is to help people move better, faster and feel athletic by progressing gradually. I am asked all the time what I do for my physique, well here it is, these workouts are combinations of all that I do and all that I have learnt in the gym! I would particularly push people to try the ZMR (zero momentum reps) which is something I discovered for joint strength through all my injuries. I hope I am able to serve my fans through this."

Guess where Shraddha Kapoor is heading to on her birthday

Shraddha Kapoor

It is a known fact that Shraddha Kapoor has been busy with film promotions and shoot schedules since last year. Shooting for Half Girlfriend, followed by promotions of Rock On 2 and then Ok Jaanu and then kick starting Haseena, the actress seems to have her platter full. Amidst all of this, we hear Shraddha has decided to take a break from the hectic work schedules.

We hear that Shraddha Kapoor, who recently wrapped the first schedule of Haseena, will be taking off to Europe and visiting some picturesque cities in the continent. While she had desired to be on this trip solo, it is being said that she decided to go with her friends after her parents expressed concerns over her security.

As far as the itinerary is concerned, starting from London, the gang is said to go on a backpack trip and head to Paris, Venice, Rome by road and rail. It is supposedly a ten day trip with the actress ringing her birthday either in London or Paris.

On the Bollywood front, while we await the release of the Arjun Kapoor starrer Half Girlfriend, Shraddha Kapoor will be seen in Haseena - The Queen of Mumbai, directed by Apoorva Lakhia and it also stars her real life brother Siddhant Kapoor as her reel life brother Dawood Ibrahim.

Shah Rukh Khan’s next with Anushka Sharma is still untitled

the-ring-shah-rukh-khan

By now, we all know that Shah Rukh Khan, who was recently seen in the film Raees has been busy working on his next which is being directed by Imtiaz Ali. Well, the film which also features Anushka Sharma was said to be titled The Ring since the entire story of the film revolved around a ring. However, later there were reports that suggested that the same film have been titled Rehnuma, an Urdu word meaning guide and of course the director’s fondness for Urdu words.

Though the first look of the film was released a while back, the title of the film was copiously missing from the same. Now we hear that in fact the said project is yet to be titled. Apparently, The Ring was just a working title under which the film was being made, and the makers are yet to zero down on a name that encompasses the breath of the story.

As for the film, The Ring which was shot in locations like Prague to Amsterdam to Lisbon to Budapest, is directed by Imtiaz Ali and is scheduled to release during the Independence Day weekend in 2017.

Nawazuddin Siddiqui to do a cameo in Anurag Kashyap’s Manmarziyan

Nawazuddin Siddiqui

In the past we have seen Nawazuddin Siddiqui collaborate with filmmaker Anurag Kashyap on projects like the Gangs of Wasseypur series and Raman Raghav. Well now we hear that the director and actor are set to reunite on the big screen for Kashyap’s next.

In fact, we hear that Nawazuddin has already shot for a cameo sequence in Anurag’s film Manmarziyan that is being produced by Aanand L Rai. Apparently, Anurag wanted to feature a known face in the film that comprises of mostly new comers and approached Nawaz for the same. On his part, Nawaz after hearing of his involvement in the film readily jumped at the idea and commenced work on the same even before he commenced work on Manto.

Confirming the same Nawazuddin’s brother Shamaas added, “It is not exactly a cameo in the film. Instead it is more of a special song sequence that features Nawazuddin as the central character.”

Sonu Sood to produce and act in Marathi film

Sonu Sood

Earlier this year, we saw Sonu Sood exchanging some high octane martial arts moves with none other than the Chinese star Jackie Chan in the film Kung Fu Yoga. Well, now we hear that Sood who had launched his own production house last year is all set on venturing into regional film production. In fact, Sood we hear is keen on producing and acting in a Marathi film.

Confirming the same, the actor who has featured in Punjabi, Hindi, Tamil, Telugu and Chinese films, stated that producing and acting in a Marathi film is his way of thanking the state and people of Maharashtra for all that it has given to him since he moved to Nagpur first to study engineering. Further talking about the film, Sood added that he has already zeroed in on a concept for the film which will have a social message and has roped in two writers who are penning a script for him.

Interestingly, a couple of years ago, Sood had been offered to act in a Marathi film, but the actor had turned down the project at that time. Talking about the same now he adds that given the current trend of Marathi films that are high on content doing well, he wanted to be well prepared before venturing into this territory. Though the actor still claims that he isn’t very fluent in the language he plans to gain mastery over it before he begins the film.
