Hey! Dude


You might have missed actor Shereveer Vakil in the dozen films he's appeared in. It's not your fault. For they were merely blink-and-you-miss roles. But the celebrity fitness trainer is hopeful post-"Welcome." Says the actor with a well-toned physique, "The film got me substantial recognition. Now, I want to concentrate on acting. My favourite director is Ram Gopal Varma. I've played negative shades in many of his films. Acting happened by chance - by sheer association with film stars for whom I've been fitness trainer for so many years." Incidentally, Shereveer started out as a fitness trainer to Telugu star Venkatesh. Soon followed Anil Kapoor ("he's like family"), Ajay Devgan, Kajol, Tabu, Sonam Kapoor, Kareena Kapoor and Esha Deol. He continues to prescribe diet charts for celebs such as Mallika Sherawat and Madhuri Dixit (I helped her reduce 15 kg for "Aaja Naachle"). "Now, I'm keen on pursuing films. I want to act in big entertainers. I don't mind roles like the one I played in the Malayalam hit `Big B' starring Mammootty. You'll soon see me in `Golmal Returns.' Though it's only a brief role, I enjoyed the shooting schedule with Ajay Devgan, Kareena and Tushaar. It was like one `healthy' vacation for the cast, with me giving them enough fitness training and diet tips. We ate right, worked hard, worked out harder and slept well!" says Shereveer, who is also doing Raj Kumar Santoshi's next film.
