Mumbai, March 10 -- Hrithik Roshan, who is a fitness freak, is trying to convert the unit of his next into gym junkies as well. We hear that the actor - who is in Bhuj, Gujarat, to shoot for Ashutosh Gowariker's period film - has paid the gym membership fees for 30 crew members.
"He has been in Bhuj since the end of January, and has been working out at a local gym close to the shooting location. He has got these unit members enrolled at the same gym and is taking care of their expenses personally," says an insider.
The actor and his crew are expected to be in Bhuj till the end of April. Apparently, and the starryeyed owners of the gym have put up huge posters of Hrithik there. The insider adds, "Since they will be shooting there for over a month now, he has paid the fees for 30 of them for the entire duration (January to April)."
Hrithik makes it a point to work out after pack-up so that the unit members are also free to join himm. They are mostly youngsters, including assistant directors, so he gives them fitness tips as well. "Hrithik understands the importance of good health, and he is trying to inculcate this in the crew as well. They are more than happy since he is also guiding them," adds the insider.
We tried reaching Hrithik, but he remained unavailable for a comment.
