I’ve got a  family pack, no six-pack: Armaan Jain

Legendary actor Raj Kapoor’s grandson Armaan Jain, who would be making his Bollywood today with ‘Lekar Hum Deewana Dil’ along with co-actor Deeksha Seth, says that though he doesn’t have the perfect six-pack abs as required by the industry, he follows a regular workout regimen. What’s more, the new kid on the block says that he has got a “family pack” in return!

“I’ve got a family pack! There is no six-pack. If (in a film) my character demands, I will work on my body. But I am into sports. I work out daily for two hours besides playing football, cricket and tennis,” said Armaan Jain in a recent interview.

Before facing the camera, Armaan Jain had a small stint behind the camera when he assisted filmmaker Karan Johar. Talking about what he likes more, Armaan said, “I assisted Karan Johar for three years – during ‘My Name Is Khan’, ‘Ek Main Aur Ekk Tu’ and ‘Student Of The Year’. I got very influenced by his direction. I am fascinated with the art of filmmaking. I didn’t go to Karan with the idea that he would launch me…but I went to learn direction.”

The actor further said that while working with Karan he got interested in direction too, though acting has been his first love. “I wish I could go back on the set. I was purely into acting (initially), but when I started learning direction, I got interested in it. I made short films as well, and now I have developed a new passion for direction,” he revealed.
