Bipasha Basu opines that Akshay Kumar is the fittest actor in Bollywood, while Salman Khan is a fitness icon. Looking drop dead gorgeous in a black colour, full sleave t-shirt on which the title 'Unleash' is printed, Bipasha was launching the third DVD in her fitness series, 'Fit & Fabulous You and Break Free'.
Praising the action icons of Bollywood, she said, "I feel Akshay Kumar is the fittest actor because right from my first film I have seen.. he is super energetic, looks after his health and eats right. Salman Khan is a fitness icon... he has got the body into the business. Every single boy aspires to have a body like Salman. They are the iconic stalwarts in the fitness world of our country."
She also praised Deepika Padukone for maintaining a very fit body. "In the current lot of actress, Deepika Padukone looks fit. She has a fitness background because of her father; I think its imbibed," the 35-year-old dusky beauty said.
Bipasha feels that it is very important for an actor to maintain their good looks because film is a visual medium. She also criticised people who says they are too busy to spend some time for a work-out. She said, "It is a shame if you can't take out 25 minutes for your health. Dedicate at least 25 minutes to workout. The pressure of becoming fit is on everyone, because it is a visual medium and everyone needs to look good."
She also emphasised that looking good is just secondary when being fit is most important. " I always believe that looking good is a bonus. I do it for health," she clarified.
Two DVDs Bipasha released earlier as a part of the same series were highly successful. She also thanked Twitter for it is a fabulous way to connect to her fans and get feedback back from them.
