Actors encourage well-being through sports!


In the present era, active living and prioritising and sustaining fitness are crucial. Engaging in sports is a compelling path to achieve this objective, providing physical activity, enjoyment, and social connection. &TV artists talk about the vital role of sports in a balanced lifestyle, revealing their favourite sports and their physical and mental benefits for overall well-being. These include Rahul Jethwa (Avadh Bihari Vajpayee, Atal), Aryan Prajapati (Hritik Singh, Happu Ki Ultan Paltan), and Charrul Malik (Rusa, Bhabiji Ghar Par Hain). Rahul Jethwa, essaying Awadh Bihari Vajpayee in &TV’s show Atal, says, “Football isn’t just a game but a way of life that grounds and energises me. The benefits are tremendous, whether it’s a casual kickabout on the beach or the field with friends. It makes keeps me active, enhances flexibility, and builds stamina. In a world dominated by screens and sedentary habits, the thrill of chasing a ball surpasses all. It’s not solely about winning matches; it’s about triumphing in life by prioritising health and camaraderie. Football injects joy and excitement into my routine, fostering teamwork and unity with friends. I feel invigorated with every kick and sprint, knowing I’m investing in my physical and mental well-being. It’s a reminder that life’s greatest victories come from staying active, relishing the outdoors, and cherishing moments of laughter and friendship.”


Aaryan Prajapati, essaying Hritik Singh in &TV’s show Happu Ki Ultan Paltan, says, “Cycling keeps me active, as it rejuvenates my body and mind. Every weekend, I ensure I take to the road, covering distances ranging from 5 to 10 kilometres. This not only maintains the health of my heart and strengthens my legs but also improves my balance, coordination, and overall stamina. The sense of accomplishment I experience after each ride is unparalleled, as a tangible reminder of my dedication to personal well-being. Beyond the physical advantages, cycling is a haven for my mental health, providing clarity and rejuvenation. It’s not just a form of exercise; it’s a delightful sport that keeps me active, engaged, and fulfilled.” Charrul Malik, essaying Rusa in &TV’s show Bhabiji Ghar Par Hain, said, “Badminton and rope jumping transcend mere activities; they are integral facets of my lifestyle. The badminton court is my haven in my current residence, providing a space for sport, community, and connection. Whenever time allows, I am irresistibly drawn to the court, relishing the physical and mental benefits it brings. Regarding rope jumping, it’s a routine I diligently follow three times a week, completing sets of 500 jumps each time. The exhilaration of achieving 1500 jumps is unparalleled—a sense of accomplishment that fuels my motivation. The convenience is noteworthy; with a skipping rope always in my bag, there’s no excuse not to engage. The advantages extend beyond physical fitness; from enhancing heart health to alleviating anxiety, these activities offer a holistic approach to well-being. Providing a full-body workout, improving coordination, and even increasing running speed. They’re not just sports but essential elements of a balanced and fulfilling life.”
