New Delhi: Actor-anchor Purab Kohli, currently seen in a seductive shirtless avatar in a television commercial for a soap brand, tried basic techniques to look fit in the advertisement.

In the commercial for Wild Stone`s soap for men, Purab goes shirtless while playing football with children. However, the actor was surprised when he was approached to feature as a tough man with sex appeal.

"I`m glad to have worked with an esteemed brand like Wild Stone and talented director Bharat Sikka. I was surprised when they imagined me as rugged, masculine, modern and seductive," Purab, who has worked in movies like "My Brother...Nikhil", "Bas Ek Pal" and "Rock On!!", said in a statement.

"This is the first time I went shirtless for a TVC and to achieve the form one sees in the commercial I went down to basics with traditional free hand workouts and natural diet," added the actor, who has become the new face of Wild Stone`s ad campaign.

The commercial has been directed by Bharat Sikka.
