Akshay Kumar fittest man in industry: John Abraham

Akshay Kumar & John Abraham
MUMBAI: Six years after "Garam Masala", Akshay Kumar and John Abraham have teamed up again to entertain people with their new action-comedy "Desi Boyz". The latter can’t stop heaping praise on his co-star and says that he is the "fittest man" in the industry.

"Akshay has always been a guiding force from ‘Garam Masala’ itself. I was very raw then. I have learnt a lot from him," said John.

John, who built a muscular body for his last release "Force", even feels Akshay is fit as a fiddle at 44.

"Even during ‘Force’ I was always asked who is the fittest man in the industry and I have always said it is Akshay Kumar and I stand by it. He is a true inspiration in a lot more ways than one. To look so fit and handsome all the time is really difficult and he does it all the time," added John.

"Desi Boyz" marks the directorial debut of Rohit Dhawan, son of filmmaker David Dhawan. Also starring Deepika Padukone, Chitrangada Singh and Omi Vaidya, the film will release Nov 25.
