I don't work out for six pack abs: Sunny Deol
New Delhi: His name might not feature in the six pack abs list of Bollywood but Sunny Deol says just because he never flaunts his muscles does not mean he is not a fitness freak.
The 56-year-old, who can arguably be tagged as the original action star of the 90s with films like 'Ghayal' and "Ghatak", says he does not work out for showing off.
"I have always been a fitness freak but I am not here to work for six pack and gloat about muscles around, that is not who I am. When I joined this industry, that time action was really action. There were no safeties for stunts, no cables.
"But I loved doing it. I remember when I had started off with 'Betaab' my dad (Dharmendra) had said that you will not do any stunts but when my duplicates couldn't perform it, I had to do it," Sunny said.
The actor will soon be seen doing some action sequences in his upcoming movie 'Yamla Pagla Deewana 2', a sequel to his 2011 release of the same name.
The film brings back the Deol family - Dharmendra, Sunny and Bobby - on the big screen. It will hit the theatres on June 7.
Sunny has lately picked up very few projects. Ask him what he looks for while deciding on a movie, he said, "If I like the subject I do the movie. It is instinctive otherwise I don't think much about it."
