Though he’s always been on the leaner yet fit side, for his new flick Boss, the actor modified his tried-and-tested regime to bulk up and acquire a rugged look. Playing a Haryanvi lad, the film required him to look a certain way especially for the elaborate action sequences. In order to get the look right, Akki reserved about three hours every day to his body’s fitness. Since he does not believe in steroids, he got this look too in an organic way. His routine consisted of swimming, free-fall exercises, skipping, hopping, running and climbing the stairs of a 50-storey building two times in a day, in addition to his martial arts practice.
