Mumbai, Aug. 28 -- Hrithik Roshan's obsession with fitness is no secret. Turns out, it's not restricted to just his own health and physique.
The actor, who will soon start shooting for Ashutosh Gowariker's period drama, has also taken co-star Pooja Hegde under his wing.
A source close to the actor reveals, "Post the promotions and release of Bang Bang, Hrithik intends on taking a break, in which he will do the research for his period film. All the young actresses today prioritise fitness and take care of their bodies. However, a period drama will require the leading lady to have a more curvaceous body as opposed to a size zero figure."
Pooja, who is making her Bollywood debut with this film, will have a personal trainer, but Hrithik will be overlooking her entire regime. The source says, "Post October, Hrithik will put her on a special eightweek, intense workout session. This is the first time he's assisting a female co-star with something like this."
In the past, Hrithik has helped his mother and sister lose weight and tone up. When contacted, Hrithik's spokesperson confirms the story.
