Exclusive! Vivek Oberoi: I had put on a lot of weight, I was really unhappy with myself

Vivek Oberoi was in news over his bike ride recently, and in the video the actor looks much fit and in shape. But that wasn’t the case with the actor, who had rather turned over-weight, last year. So when work came to a standstill in 2020, due to the pandemic, the Great Grand Masti actor utilised the time of the lockdown to get back to his healthier self.

In conversation with Bombay Times, Vivek opened up about gaining weight due to the unhealthy lifestyle he had taken to. He says, “From binge eating to binge watching video content for hours together, I just lost the track. I used to sleep at 5 am and wake up in the afternoon. I was really unhappy with myself. I was doing it all wrong. During the course I gained a lot of weight.”

He further adds, “Thanks to the lockdown, it forced me to look inward. I went down the route of rediscovering myself. Firstly, I put myself under restrictions. I followed a strict regimen and I changed my whole lifestyle. I began waking up early as good as 4.30 am and did yoga and workout sessions. I went on a juice diet and cleansed my system. I also started calling it a night at 10 pm. Through the lockdown, I read a lot of books, developed scripts and focused on work. With this disciplined lifestyle, I was able to lose 14 kilos. I am feeling super healthy now.”
