Bollywood actor Saif Ali Khan said walking is a great form of full body exercise and urged people to adopt it as a fitness routine. The 46-year-old actor considers walking to be a great stress reliever and said he heads out of his home for a walk whenever he is pressed for time.
“Walking is a great form of full body exercise and it’s an indispensable part of my fitness routine. I feel walking is not only physically rewarding but also a great stress reliever. When I am pressed for time, plugging in some good music, putting on my walking shoes and heading out for a walk is the easiest thing to do,” Saif said in a statement.
The 46-year-old actor was in the city to flag off the 5th edition of Walk for Health event along with his ‘Rangoon’ co-star Kangana Ranaut. “It makes me happy to see thousands of Delhiites of all age groups participating in Walk for Health. Walking is a great habit we all must adopt. I urge everyone gathered here today to make walking a part of your daily routine just the way going to work or spending time with family is,” he added.
Saif Ali Khan has been leading a slightly peripatetic existence shooting for the film ‘Chef’, and after Kerala and Amritsar, he was recently seen shooting in Chandni Chowk in Delhi. The multiple locations are no surprise, given that the film is an adaptation of Jon Favreau’s popular Hollywood film, which features a road trip. The Delhi shoot schedule was a two-day one – some scenes were shot inside Mahavir Bhawan near Jama Masjid police station on the first day, and on the second day, Saif shot in the narrow galis near Kinari Bazaar.
On the first day, not many knew that the shooting of the movie was taking place at Mahavir Bhawan. The film’s crew had also deployed enough security staff and bouncers to ensure that fans of the actor do not gather around the area. A source close to the team told us, “Saif reached the shoot at 11 am on the first day and the shoot was wrapped up by 8 pm. We did not want people to know about the shoot, so we shot some scenes indoors.” The source added, “The film’s director wanted to show the area of purani Dilli, that is why this location had been chosen. Since we wanted to avoid any ruckus on the sets, we chose the interiors of Chandni Chowk for the second day as well, so that people don’t get to know about it.”
