Mumbai, Feb. 8 -- Supermodel Kate Moss has made many a fitness freak turn green with her new $2 million (R9 crore) home gym, but she isn't the only one spending big on her workout. Indian stars, too, have been investing in hi-tech home gyms of late, even if theirs don't amount to Moss' fairytale fitness haven.

Another actor in this business is Hrithik Roshan. He too, has a fancy personal gym. "He is very particular about his fitness regime. He has machines from the best brands. His gym is worth over a crore," says celeb fitness expert Satyajit Chaurasia. Aamir Khan's home gym is worth an estimated R55 lakh, while Ajay Devgn's cost him around R50 lakh.
Actor Tusshar Kapoor's trainer Pramod Dadlani, says, "He has got an advanced local-made treadmill and a multi-functional bench installed at his home gym, worth around R20 lakh. Importing equipment costs a lot." Zayed Khan is another guy who "has a multi-jungle gym with compact equipment," according to a source.
It's not just the men who have a swanky gym at their place. Rani Mukerji's home gym is worth around R30 lakh, Esha Deol's cost her close to R25 lakh. Shilpa Shetty Kundra also has a stylish one at home. Not to forget, the industrial big guns, too, have expensive home gyms to boast of.
