Whether you love the fact or hate it, but Bollywood had left a great impact on our nation, culture, and even our personal lives. It’s no surprise that B’ Town celebs continue to rule our heart from generations.

In today’s time physical fitness and a healthy lifestyle are key to longevity in the Indian film industry. Hence not only do the young actors maintain their physique and live life with great discipline, even the senior actors are giving us some serious fitness and lifestyle goals.

In fact, age is a number for our most favorite Bollywood stars who have already crossed the age of 60.

Here is a list of 7 such B’ Town celebs who have whipped the concept related to age:

  • Amitabh Bachchan

Amitabh Bachchan, at the age of 78, is one of the oldest and fittest B’Town actors ever seen. Big B never fails to hit the gym every morning and follows a strict vegan diet to maintain a healthy lifestyle. He often posts his selfie on social media standing besides exercise equipment like dumbbells, treadmills, and weights and encourages and inspires his fans to exercise.

His morning routine also includes consumption of Tulsi and Amla juice and breathing exercises, yoga, and pranayama. No wonder, he can be seen working for almost 16 hours a day without getting tired!

He is believed to hit the gym for a healthy lifestyle and practices yoga and swimming in his day-to-day life. The ‘Thalaiva’ of Tamil Nadu is also believed to be visiting the Himalayas almost every year.
