Actor-filmmaker Satish Kaushik had been battling weight issues for years now and finally having shed 25 kg is fit to play with his six-year-old daughter Vanshika. He’s also signed half-a-dozen big films as an actor, including Shaad Ali’s Soorma, Ashu Trikha’s Veeray Ki Wedding, Yamla Pagla Deewana 3 with the Deols — Dharmendra, Sunny and Bobby, and Vipul Shah’s upcoming Namastey England. He admits he hasn’t felt this energetic in a long time.
Prod him on how the miracle happened and Kaushik informs that he discovered a doctor in Los Angeles, Christian Middelthon, whose prescribed diet helped him lose all the flab. Industry colleagues also inspired him. “I didn’t have a medical problem but even long walks at airports had become a problem and that would upset me. My energy levels had dipped after working without a break for 40 years. But today with the kind of films being made, you have to be fit to be seen in the same frame as GenX actors,” he points out.

Producer Guneet Monga who has lost a lot of weight too put him on to Christian while buddy Anil Kapoor would keep urging him to eat healthy. “Sonam would also keep nagging me and finally I decided it was time to fall in love with myself,” Kaushik smiles, adding that his biggest reward was when he went to Dubai recently and could run around with his young daughter in the park. “Now, if I feel tempted to eat something unhealthy, she stops me, saying, ‘Papa mat khao, dobara mote ho jaoge.’
