kollywood south indian stars bharath catherine tresa arya

Today’s younger crop of film stars are quite style-conscious keeping in mind their personal comfort levels and image projections in public. For many of them, fitness is second nature and while doing so, their indulgence in leisure activities are also met.

We spoke to four young guns in the South film industry to find out what makes them tick.

Gautham Karthik – Biker dude

Ever since his debut in Kadal in 2013, Gautham Karthik’s career has slowly started accelerating with as many as five films in different stages of production for 2017. But, that doesn’t deter the outgoing youngster from jumping astride his favourite Harley Davidson Super Glide, on weekends and along with a few like-minded buddies, hit the high road to freedom from the arc lights.

Gautham loves to record every journey that he undertakes on his HD. His preference for a camera on the move is Sena. “Sena 10C Evo Motorcycle Bluetooth camera and communications systems can be easily fixed on a helmet or handlebar without bulky rigs and these have communication systems built into it which will help keeping in touch among a group of riders. When my friends and I undertake these road trips, it is always good to be in touch with each other,” says Gautham.

While on weekend rides Gautham ensures that he wears the right kind of gear, both for safety and protection as well as to generally feel good. “I have a range of Dainese riding jackets which are ideally suited for our weather conditions. For knee protection, I prefer Thor Force XP Knee Guards, while Knox Armor goes well with Dainese jackets for body protection in case of a fall or mishap. I have a few Shark full face and half face helmets and depending on the kind of rides I undertake, I use either of them. Using the right kind of footwear is also essential and my favourites are Spartan boots and gloves,” says Gautham.

Arya – Fit as a fiddle

Chocolate hero turned macho man, actor Arya has transformed into an action hero over the years. Many of his recent movies have prompted Arya to follow strict fitness regime closely. Have these kind of roles spurred on his penchant for fitness?

“Not really. I have always kept a strict fitness regime even during my initial days in the film industry. But, the kind of roles I did earlier did not warrant my beefing up,” says Arya who has had to look rough and tough for Kadamban.

“But all through my life I have been an outdoors man and love three specific activities – running, swimming and cycling,” says Arya who owns ten high-end sports cycles, ranging from Bianchi Infinito CV to Canyon cycles. He is a part of twenty active cycling enthusiasts who hit the East Coast Road whenever possible for a few hours of rigorous cycling. “Keeping track of one’s cardio is essential in such physical activities. Currently I am using a Garmin Fenix 3 watch which has several special features like setting distance and speed targets. I have just ordered a Fenix 5 which is a compact multi sport GPS watch with wrist-based heart rate monitor and other advances fitness features. I use Garmin even during my workouts and swimming,” informs Arya.

Swimming is another activity Arya resorts to for keeping his well-toned body in top shape. “Swimming for fitness and for competitive sports are two different activities. I swim more for fitness, but wearing the right kind of swim gear is essential and I find Speedo is an ideal swim wear brand.”

Besides all these activities, Arya is a regular at Monster Gym for developing his muscles and generally keeping fit, with workouts. “Shoes are an essential part of any physical, indoor or outdoor activity. I love shopping for a wide range of footwear ideally designed for my different activities. My favourites are Asics Gel Cumulus 16, Adidas Boost and Nike Air Zoom; these brands have specific products for cycling, running and working out. Wearing the right footwear ensures that you don’t get hurt; it reduces fatigue, too,” says Arya.

Bharath – Smart and stylish

Bharath loves to keep fit and fashionable in a casually smart way, not projecting himself as an ultra-sophisticated dude. Even in his films, most of the characters he has played are close to his real self, he says. “Fashionable clothes and watches – these are the two areas I indulge in. My favourite clothes brand is Pull & Bear, a Spanish label currently unavailable in India, and Zara. Whenever I travel abroad, I zero in on a P & B outlet to pick my selection. They give me an amazing fit for my muscular frame. These brands are not very, very expensive, but classy, nevertheless,” says Bharath. He loves his jeans and clear favourites are Salsa, a very innovative designer label from Portugal, and Diesel. “Depending on the occasion I wear shirts and casual trousers or jeans and tees. Yet another favourite label of mine is Topman of UK,” informs Bharath.
