Time and again we have read stories about actors hitting the gym to get in shape for a role that they have bagged. When was the last time that you read about an actor who stopped going to the gym because he got selected for a role? Well, Namish Taneja who plays the role of Samar in 'Main Maayke Chali Jaaungi Tum Dekhte Rahiyo' has did the exact same thing! The fitness conscious actor quit going to the gym after taking up the lead role of Samar.

Namish Taneja has done multiple roles on television earlier wherein he has essayed roles of a macho guy who is stylish and also that of a brat! One thing that stayed common in all the roles was him being a fitness freak. All of that changed after being selected for 'Main Maayke Chali Jaaungi Tum Dekhte Rahiyo'. In order to portray the role of a boy next door, the good-looking hunk stopped working out and also put on some additional weight!

When contacted Namish aka Samar confirmed, "For the role of Samar I had to look like the ideal boy-next-door. Since most Indian married men do not have six pack abs, I too stopped going to the gym! Furthermore, I also gained a little bit of weight. I have always preferred to watch adventure shows and movies. But since the day I got selected to play this role, I have started watching family-oriented movies to get into character. I have really worked hard and am sure the audiences are going to love Samar on television."
