Mumbai: Actor Prateik came in as a lanky boy in ‘Jaane Tu...Ya Jaane Na’, but he is now well pumped up thanks to his love for working out.

"I like being fit, I like doing weights. I like looking and feeling good. It`s a stress-buster, it de-stresses me completely. After a hard days` work, there is nothing like a good workout," the 25-year-old actor said here at the launch of Gold`s Gym.

The actor, who will soon be seen in Gautham Menon`s ‘Ek Tha Deewana’, believes girls motivate boys to be conscious about looks.

"Girls are the ones who inspire boys to look good. If a nice girl comes and you are looking like a dud, it won`t look good. They inspire you...if a beautiful woman walks by, you would want to impress her," said Prateik.

Prateik`s forthcoming film ‘Ek Deewana Tha’ features British model Amy Jackson opposite him. It will hit theatres Feb 17.
