Suniel Shetty has always been someone who has lived a life of discipline and fitness. So it would be super cool to get to hear from the man himself about what it takes to stay fit and adopt a holistic and healthy lifestyle, no?

We exclusively told you about how the actor is set to host a radio show, and it’s called ’21 Din Wellness In’ on BIG FM, where he is going to be talking about exactly that — about the various aspects of holistic and healthy living and busting myths and offering tips on fitness, dieting, mental health and more. I got a chance to have a quick chat with the man himself, where he stated that this is a show that is made for the masses, for people from all walks of life and is all about simple living.

His idea is that anything you start to practice, takes 21 days to become a habit, and his goal is to have people make wellness a habit. He says, “In 7 days you’ll feel it, in 14 days you’ll see it and in 21 days you’ll hear it from everyone around you, and that is the aim of his show”.

Given he is addressing mental health on the show, in today’s time has become something that is not only a topic for the millennial generation to engage in, but something people from older generations are also trying to grasp and understand — especially after the pandemic. He reasons out that it is a different struggle for each generation, and that people of our parents’ and grandparents’ generations are facing loneliness more than anything else right now, which could potentially affect their mental health.

He adds:

We give our parents “gyaan” about all this from what we read on social media. We might not follow it ourselves, We tell them to not go out right now, and how it is not safe. But we also don’t give them our time, given we are always busy. This show is thus, designed to address this concern from a children’s perspective as well as from a senior citizen’s perspective in order to bring about a change.

Speaking about diet fads that people adopt, mostly influenced by celebrities, he says that he has always been one to eat simple, organic foods that are grown in his backyard and kitchen and that is what the show is going to talk about too — simple nutrition that is accessible and easy.

Ask him about one lifestyle change he made in his life that changed the game for him, and he replies very simply — “discipline”. He says that it is super important to start something and follow through with it and to dedicate one hour in a day for yourself as “ME time“.

Well, these already are such insightful and helpful points, and I am super excited to listen to more such conversations on ’21 Din Wellness In’, which is playing now on BIG FM.
