VETERAN ACTORS ZEENAT AMAN, PREM CHOPRA, SHARMILA TAGORE SHARE THEIR FITNESS MANTRAS
GLOBAL MOVIE MAGAZINE|MARCH 2020
Three veteran actors Zeenat Aman, Prem Chopra, Sharmila Tagore on wellness measures that have helped them defy age.

PREM CHOPRA 84

At 84, and over six decades into the industry, Prem Chopra is still unwilling to hang up his acting boots.

Currently shooting for the Saif Ali Khan and Rani Mukerjistarrer Bunty Aur Babli 2, Chopra says the active lifestyle he enjoys today is thanks to the disciplined life he has led. “Like a typical Punjabi boy, I love to eat and drink. I don’t follow a diet as such, but one should always know when to stop. Everything is good in moderation. The problem arises when you go overboard.”

Chopra owes his physical wellbeing to his regular swimming sessions at a Bandra club. “It is among the best forms of exercise. It is relaxing and invigorating and helps build strength and endurance.” It was after he arrived in Mumbai in his mid-20s, that Chopra learnt to swim. “Growing up in Chandigarh and Shimla, I did not have access to a pool. Also, the freezing temperatures were not conducive to learning it. After I was [introduced] to it, I was hooked.

I have been pursuing it almost every day. “

During outdoor shoots, he always carries his swimming gear, and takes laps of hotel pools. “You never know when and where I can take the plunge.”
