Actor Ashish Chowdhry perhaps had an over-ambitious session at the gym as he ended up with a torn ligament following some lightweight squats.

"Torn a ligament in my back. Gotta be tucked in bed for a few days. All thanks to my over excited gymming and the 400 pounds 'lightweight' squats. Messed up for the first time by indulging in impractical heavy weights," Ashish shared on Twitter.

He also had a word of advice for those who work out.

"Weights don't matter, correct form works," added the actor, who has featured in films like "Dhamaal", "Paying Guests" and "Double Dhamaal".

The bed-ridden actor is making the most of this time to catch up on "lots of TV shows".

Sushant gets taste of female fan following!

Young and dashing actor Sushant Singh Rajput got a taste of his growing female fan base when he was almost mobbed on a recent visit to Chandigarh.

Sushant was on his way to a family function in Chandigarh, when he was mobbed by fans. His driver had a tough time parking the car, as several people engulfed the vehicle, said a source.

The actor had to wade through the crowd, guarded by security men, and he had to ultimately take refuge in the security personnel's office. The ruckus continued and it took almost an hour to escort Sushant safely back to his car, the source added.

Blame his charming looks in the trailer of "Shuddh Desi Romance"!
