Shah Rukh Khan version 2.0

Zeenews Bureau

New Delhi: 2012 was a year of controversies for Shah Rukh Khan and it seems he’s taken the criticism on board in a bid to reinvent himself. First we heard that he’s trying to quit smoking, then he is said to have been trying out new scripts to expand his range and now we hear he’s working hard on punctuality and maintaining a good physique.

Not particularly known for his action sequences, Shah Rukh Khan has a fair few of them coming up in Rohit Shetty’s next which casts him opposite Deepika Padukone. And King Khan wants to look the part too as he tones up for the flick.

A source told Mid-Day: “With the help of his personal trainer Prashant Sawant, SRK has created his very own gym. The actor has been very health conscious for a while now and wants to be in prime shape of the film. Everyone knows it’s a Rohit Shetty film and there will be oodles of action in it, some of which SRK has never tried before.”

The source added that “the results (of SRK’s work-out regime) are quite visible on the sets of Rohit’s film”.

But that’s not all. The Baadshah of Bollywood is working on his punctuality as well. Already known for a strong work-ethic, SRK has now made an extra effort to always reach the sets on time. In fact, if reports are to be believed, the star has never been late for shooting at Wai so far.

We love this new and improved SRK and hope to see more of this come 2013. New Year’s resolution anyone?
