While most actors and people who love working out prefer having loud music playing while theyâ€™re in the gym, we have wrestler turned actor, Danish Akhtar who prefers a completely different tune to be played whenever he hits the gym.
The actor who is currently seen playing the role of Hanuman in STAR Plusâ€™s mythological saga, Siya Ke Ram apparently hears the Hanuman Chalisa on his phone while sweating it out at the gym.
Being a wrestler, Danish confesses to have been an ardent follower of the mighty Hanuman. â€œWe as wrestlers are staunch believers of the Bajrang bali. We hear the Hanuman chalisa before entering the wrestling ring before every fight as well. I believe I was destined to play the role of Hanuman.â€
Further elaborating on listening to the Hanuman chalisa while working out, Danish said, â€œWorkout for me is like worship. I have been listening to the Hanuman chalisa since the last 4 years and now that I am playing the role of Hanuman in Siya Ke Ram, it was only befitting when I decided to listen to the song during my workout sessions as well. The tune has a serene and calming effect attached to it and it makes me feel rejuvenated to another level altogether.â€
