Chinmay Mandlekar is known for his skills as a methodical actor who gets into every character and plays each role with a fine-tuned sense of art. Being such a dedicated artist has its pros and cons. One major con is the possibility of accidents or injuries while doing real-life stunts.
Chinmay Mandlekar has been in the news several times before as well for such injuries. One of the most possibly lethal accidents happened on the sets of the popular TV show Tu Majha Sangati. He fell down from an uncontrollable horse during the shoot. Last year on May 24th, 2019, Chinmay sustained one such shoulder injury during a shoot.
Unable to lift the left hand at all, Chinmay was not able to do basic tasks like wearing clothes or switching on lights. An actor’s workouts are based on their hands, ability to lift or do push-ups. In the absence of workouts, Chinmay couldn’t keep his fitness levels stable.
The actor turned to friends for help, his fitness coach Sanjit Chandorkar helped him train and Neha Joshi helped him stay motivated. An actor who is so dedicated to his art of performing took a lot of effort but did not let the injury stand in the way of delivering hits after hits in 2019 in the Marathi film and theatre world!
While Fatteshikast, Hirkani, Nimma Shimma Rakshas, and much more successful acting and directing projects were in the pipeline, Madlekar was also struggling with his injury. Still, in the recovery phase, Mandlekar hits the gym for a rigorous workout. Catch a glimpse of his workout here:
