Arjun Kapoor is loved by fans for keeping it real, both onscreen as well as offscreen. His Instagram timeline is a collection of such raw posts and the actor has never been one to shy away from being vulnerable in front of the world. Now, Arjun Kapoor has shared a post on how his COVID-19 battle changed his outlook and approach to fitness. In fact, he chose a special day to share it. Monday, September 6, marks one year of the actor having tested positive for coronavirus. Arjun Kapoor penned a long note on the occasion and attached it to a photo of himself working out in the gym.
In the caption, Arjun Kapoor wrote, “One year anniversary. Aap soch rahe hoge kis cheez ka? Koi khushiyon wali anniversary nahin hai yeh. [You much be thinking what anniversary? It is not a happy one] It's one year since I tested positive for COVID-19 and it pushed my fitness level back by months. I had just started getting into a routine with Drew Neal on Zoom sessions in lockdown and boom, I got COVID.”
The actor confessed that finding a fitness routine that suited him has always been tricky. Arjun Kapoor wrote, “For someone like me - the struggle is continuous, every day counts, every training session counts. I remember being demoralised, distraught. I was just on the path to making a turnaround - emotionally, mentally, I was there to make it happen… I took some days to get over the fact that after taking all the precautions, it happened to me.”
But he did not allow the condition to overpower, Arjun Kapoor said. “But I told myself, I will work doubly hard to not let this throw me off the rails.” The actor explained that factors such as clean eating, resting my mind and body played a pivotal role in his recovery.
Arjun Kapoor is not one to forget his team for the contribution. He said, “I thank Akshay Arora for his brilliance in making super healthy and yet enjoyable food that made me bounce back. I restarted virtual training sessions with my trainer Drew Neal immediately after I tested negative and that boosted my morale.”
The actor added that even while he began shooting for his upcoming film Bhoot Police, he was finding his footing with regard to work and fitness routine. “A year later I'm still a work in progress... But I'm proud of the journey, I'm happy where I'm today and raring to move forward with my newfound vigour over the last 12 months.”
Reacting to Arjun Kapoor's latest upload, singer Armaan Malik said, “More power to you, bro.”
