Actor Feroze Khan has been all the rage for his latest drama serial, Khuda Aur Mohabbat. The actor, who will be sharing the screen with an ensemble cast in the big-budget project, has been lauded by the audience for his character, Farhad. Khan's massive fan following is testimony to his successful acting career. However, it seems like the Dilruba star is all set to challenge himself for a herculean task.

After making his mark in acting, Khan has recently shared his focus is now to train as a boxer. In a recent interview with a local channel, the actor revealed he is now training to be a boxer. For him, exercising seems to be an integral part of his day.

"I think this [gyming] is very important. This is your construction time. Whatever foundation you build of your thoughts are usually formed when you're working out," he shared, adding, "I really take this time seriously, as I'm sure many of the gym buffs do."

Speaking about taking the professional route as an athlete, Khan added, "When I told my friends about pursuing acting, they laughed it off. They said there are so many people who dream of the same, most don't end up making it big. I told them, I'll try and see. Similarly, when I told them I wish to become a boxer, I received a very similar response. That's how I know it's a win."

The actor further divulged how he found his usual fitness training very different from the training he has been getting for becoming a fighter. "The training actors, models and my other colleagues do is poles apart from this training. The former is body-building and physique build-up, this is strength training. This is 100% more difficult. You are basically training your brain. It gives you patience. That's why some of the most famous people have some form of sport incorporated into their lives," he said.

The Khaani star shared he doesn't trust steroids and surgeries. "They would give one short-term results," Khan added. "I think that's why such core exercises are necessary. One has to invest time, power and energy for long-term outcome," he concluded.
