Hrithik Roshan was used to being supremely fit - until he signed Sanjay Leela Bhansali's Guzaarish. He was under strict orders to look less muscular and sport some weight around his midriff. Now that the shoot is complete, Hrithik is dying to get back to his fit, muscular self. 

His next film, too, demands that put on five kilos, but he has to accumulate the weight in terms of muscle mass. So Hrithik is determined to look fit and his sheer willpower will see him through punishing workouts and diet. A thorough professional, he wants to look the part for Zoya Akhtar's Running with the Bulls.

The actor is going through hardcore gym training for three hours every day in his new gym on the terrace of his Juhu residence (Palazzio, Road No 12) under the guidance of his fitness trainer Satyajit Chourasia. Until recently, he was training for about an hour every day. “We have two sessions every day. Hrithik is increasing his muscle mass,” says Satyajit.

Naturally, Hrithik has to adhere to a lot of dos and don'ts as far as his diet is concerned. The star may enjoy his drink, but now he has gone off alcohol. “Yes, no alcohol for Hrithik now. However, I don't mind if he has an occasional drink. He eats chicken and fish every day. And, the carbohydrate intake post-evening ranges from low to nil. “

Hrithik is eating about 12 eggs every day. “Four eggs in the morning, four in the afternoon and four in the evening/night. It's not easy, but this man is a very committed actor,” says the trainer.

“Results are expected in two months,” concluded Satya. Well, we won't be surprised if Hrithik meets the deadline. We remember how he put himself through a strict regime and decreased his waistline from 32 inches to 28 for an ad in April 2009.

Meanwhile. Karan Johar had a tough day today as he got a number of annoying calls, courtesy Hrithik Roshan. Apparently, yesterday, Hrithik revealed on Twitter that he calls Karan “Pappu”.

This is Hrithik's affectionate nickname for Karan. However, after this revelation, everyone who called or texted the director, addressed him as Pappu.

Karan has been getting calls since morning and is irritated with Hrithik talking about his pet name in public.

Hrithik has been calling him Pappu for ages as Karan was fat and round. However the nickname was a well kept secret till Thursday night.  Obviously Karan is far from amused.
