New Delhi: Fitness mode is definitely on for the Roshans. We were not yet over with Hrithik Roshan's sister Sunaina's extreme 'transformation' when Hrithik's father filmmaker Rakesh Roshan shared his fitness regime with mid-day and inspired us with his healthy diet plans. Sharing his fitness mantra, Rakesh Roshan told mid-day: "It's not been an easy process." The 68-year-old filmmaker added, "It took me a lot of time to arrive at where I am today. I work out for one-and-a-half to two hours every day. First, I walk for one hour and then lift weights with my trainer. I lost the weight very slowly, taking about eight to nine months to reach here," reports mid-day.

Rakesh Roshan also said that health has always been his first priority. "I have been exercising for many years. I stayed in a boarding school, where I was into horse riding, hockey, swimming and basketball. I was always an athletic. Today, my entire family focusses on being physically fit. In fact, all of us including my granddaughter Suranika (Sunaina's daughter), work out every day. Based on our schedule, we either train together or separately with our individual trainers. We have a mini gym in the house and have a lot of fun working out together," mid-day quoted Rakesh Roshan as saying.
Rakesh Roshan also revealed that his 75-year-old actor-friend Jeetendra inspired him to be fit. He told mid-day: "If he (Jeetendra) can do it, so can I."
Rakesh Roshan also thanked Hrithik for guiding him throughout the weight loss process. Of Hrithik, he said, "He is always around while I'm working out, and is quick to correct my trainer if he doesn't agree with what is being done. I've also learnt the importance of eating the right food. I have my dinner by 7 pm, sleep by 11 pm, and wake up early. I don't take protein supplements, but I am also careful to avoid carbs like sugar, rice and chapatis. I consume food rich in protein, apart from eating a lot of vegetables," reports mid-day.
Recently, Hrithik shared Sunaina's extreme 'transformation' picture on Twitter and wrote: "Now that's what I call a transformation !! So so proud of you didi."
Rakesh Roshan, who was last seen as an actor in 1989's Bahurani, also told mid-day: "If I return to films, it will be with a Hollywood outing, because in the West I can be signed on as a young hero and get paired opposite a pretty girl, but in Bollywood, that won't happen."
Rakesh Roshan, who made his Bollywood debut as an actor with 1970's Ghar Ghar Ki Kahani in a supporting role, has acted in films like Aankhon Aankhon Mein,Khoobsurat , Khatta Meetha and Kaamchor. Later, he directed the blockbuster hit Karan Arjun. He has also directed Koi... Mil Gaya and Krrish, which featured Hrithik Roshan in the lead role.
