Speaking about his role as a lower middle class husband in "My Wife's Murder", Anil said he cycled his way to the shooting so that he can remain in his character.
"I played a lower middle class person in the film. So I thought 'if I go to the shooting in a luxury car, I will not be in my character'. So, I used to travel to the shooting on my bicycle," he said. The relentless actor wasn't afraid of the long cycling trip and used to bathe at the sets after his cycling workout. "The location was one and a half hours away by car but I used to reach in one hour and 15 minutes by my bicycle. I used to shower at the location and then proceed with the shooting. During the entire course of shooting for the film, I followed the same routine. "Travelling by a bicycle saves the time that you would spend in a gym to remain fit. I would also like to request Sampla sir to encourage cycling -- not only in the cities but also in small towns and villages," said Anil.
The three-day expo, which aims to promote fitness and cycling, will conclude Saturday and is being attended by 50 exhibitors from Europe, China, Japan and Taiwan.
