Gautam Gulati loves to flaunt his physique and is often seen shirtless. That’s understandable when you have a sculpted body with six-pack abs. The actor, who will soon make his Bollywood debut with Ekta Kapoor’s Azhar insists is a result of an all vegetarian diet and not artificial proteins.

That’s when I discovered Yoga.” Yoga helped the actor regain not just strength and flexibility but also self confidence.
