Jiiva is on a fitness regime. Guess why? He is playing the role of a college student in ‘Nanban’, the Tamil remake of Bollywood’s ‘Three Idiots’ directed by Shankar, a filmmaker known for extracting nothing but the best from actors he is working with.
To get his act right, Jiiva is not just strict on his diet, but also sweating it hard with rigorous workouts. One among them is to walk five kilometers a day without any break.
“Yes, I am walking from the sets of Vandhan Vendran to the hotel where I am staying. The distance between both the places is five kilometers. All this for Nanban,” confirms the actor.
Recently, Jiiva completed the first schedule of ‘Nanban’ in Ooty and is busy shooting for ‘Vandhan Vendran’ and ‘Rowthiram’. In the meantime, his other film ‘Singam Puli’ is ready for release.
