Destiny knows where to take you. Starting your career as a model and then shifting to acting must have been the best thing that has happened to Paras Kalnawat. He started his career in the entertainment industry in the year 2016. The thing that makes him more special and defines his hard work would be his age. He is just 23-years-old and working in the lead role for the popular show “Anupamaa.”


Paras Kalnawat’s career started with a popular show Meri Durga on Star Plus. After his first success, he managed to get many appreciations from the audience. However,  life took a turn and his second show did not give him the hit that he expected. He had been putting in a lot of hard work to improve his craft. After facing lots of ups and downs, Paras Kalnawat has once again managed to rule every heart with his popular on-screen character of Samar. Paras believes that fitness is really important, and it doesn’t mean just to build abs. In a fitness-centric chit chat with Paayel from Sportz Business Magazine, Paras revealed his favorite exercise, his fitness motivation, and more.


Q: Can you share with us your journey in the entertainment industry?

I started my journey in the entertainment industry as a model. I won the title of the most voted model of 2016, which was called Mr. Multimedia at the Max Elite Model Look. I started my ramp walks with the leading designers like Manish Malhotra, Monisha Jaysingh, and many others. I did a ramp walk for L’Oreal as a model and also did various advertisements. Then I got the lead role in the Star Plus serial, Meri Durga and that’s where my acting career started. I am happy to play in different zones of characters. I explored myself a lot in my acting journey. After so many ups and downs, I did my second show that ended soon. I did web series for Balaji and learned subtle acting from there. Then, I got the role of Samar in the show “Anupamaa.” It has become the number one show in the country. This role has really changed my life, and I have got so many appraisals from this particular role.

Q: How do you define fitness and maintain the same in your life?

I define fitness in a different way, as it doesn’t precisely means that you need to have six or eight pack abs. I believe that fitness means to stay healthy, active, and energetic. Also, fitness never says to leave food, it’s just that you have to eat healthy, fresh, and clean food.

Q: Being an actor, how do you prioritize workout in your everyday routine?

I believe that your health and fitness are really important. You should have a proper diet and regular workout sessions. I work out every day in the morning before leaving for the shooting set. I also go for morning walks every day.

Q: What kind of fitness regime you follow in general?

I believe that I don’t need six packs abs, and I want to have a lean body. I just need to stay fit and have that kind of body that can make people idolize me.


Q: What is your favorite exercise that you love to do a lot, and how do you motivate yourself to stick to your fitness regime?

When the gyms were open, I used to love the chest exercises, dumbbell presses, and pushups. Right now, gyms are not opened. So,  I am currently doing cardio, and my morning and evening walk. I always think about how I want to portray myself in front of an audience. Hence, I always work really hard on my fitness and body. Also, I idolize Hrithik Roshan very much and also his dedication towards fitness has helped me to stay motivated always.

Q: Where do you see yourself in the next five years?

I see myself doing a Bollywood or Tollywood movie after five years. My aim is to ultimately start acting in movies made in these languages.
