Veteran actor Anupam Kher has Akshay Kumar to thank for his fitter frame. Kher will be seen in a slimmer avatar in Naam Shabana.

"Akshay Kumar is extremely humble and doesn't let people know how much he does things for others. He has a lot to do with my looking fitter and better today. He has prodded me to take up a better lifestyle," Kher said here during a promotional event for the movie.

Kher and Kumar have worked together in as many as 20 films. 

Naam Shabana is touted as India's first spin-off based on Taapsee Pannu's character in Baby (2015), in which Kher had essayed Shukla ji.

The forthcoming movie is grabbing eyeballs for its action-packed promos and the audience is gearing up for a thrilling film based on an undercover agent. 

Directed by Shivam Nair, the film will be released on 31 March.
