I am a fan of every fit body: Pooja Chopra

Mumbai, Sep 12 (IANS) Model-turned-actress Pooja Chopra is a self-confessed fitness freak and says she is a fan of anyone who has a great body to flaunt.

"I am a fan of everyone who keeps himself or herself fit. So I am a fan of everyone who believes in healthy lifestyle and has a good body to flaunt," the 28-year-old said here Wednesday during a video conference at Reliance digital store here.

The 28-year-old also stated that the trend of "fit body" started by actors like Salman Khan and Sanjay Dutt and has now passed on to the younger actors, which is a good thing.

"In the industry there are guys like Sanjay Dutt and Salman Khan who started the trend of being fit. Today actors like Varun Dhawan and Siddharth (Malhotra) are doing it and (I am a fan of ) everybody who has a great body," said Pooja, who made her Bollywood debut with action-packed film "Commando".

Meanwhile, the actress is currently shooting for "Commando 2" with actor Vidyut Jamwal and says their friendship of five years makes it a lot more comfortable to work together.

"I don't think I was Vidyut's fan because he was my friend. Vidyut and I know each other for the past five years. We have done modelling together and a lot of ramp shows," she said.

"I wouldn't say I was excited to work with him but I was at ease that I am going to be working with a friend and not a stranger," she added.

"Commando" was directed by Dilip Ghosh and produced by Vipul Shah. Vidyut's real stunts impressed the audience which led the makers to make a sequel to the film.
