Bollywood actor Sidharth Malhotra feels playing sports is one of the best ways to stay fit as it brings out a range of emotions in a person, a sign of a healthy body and mind.
The 30-year-old actor, who played a street fighter in his last release “Brothers”, said he loves playing football and thinks involvements in sports charges one not only physically but also emotionally.
“I played football yesterday with Abhishek Bachchan’s team and enjoyed a lot. I’ve been dying to play sports, I love it. In sports, you get all the emotions. Sometimes you are angry, sad, fearful, excited and that’s a good way (to stay fit).
“Incorporate sports, or gym fitness if you want. You can play with a ball for even half an hour at your home and that’ll help in burning calories too,” Sidharth told reporters.

The “Student of the Year” actor was speaking on the sidelines of a panel discussion on the occasion of ‘World Diabetes Week’, organised by All India Ophthalmological Society and Indian Medical Association.
Bollywood actress Karishma Kapoor was also present at the event and stressed on the need of getting proper check-up to prevent diabetes.
“I have family members, who have diabetes. I urge you all to get your eyes tested and please take care of your diabetes,” he said, adding one of the ways to combat the lifestyle disease is to stop taking the body for granted.
“Don’t sit idle, do any activity. This body is all you have, so you need to take good care of it and keep working on fitness.”
