Shahrukh Khan is a chain smoker. He said in an interview that he smoked 100 cigarettes a day. Maybe he exaggerated the number. But undoubtedly, he smokes a lot. He was caught smoking in places where smoking is forbidden. He was fined twice for his smoking habit.
“He has still childlike energy and he is not burned out, and his energy on set is like a young boy doing his first film”, says ‘ Zero movie director Aanand L Rai.
To look energetic in movies and in real life is different. There is plenty of evidence that Shahrukh Khan travels to England from time to time for various treatment. He also undergoes surgeries. He is definitely not so energetic as appears on the silver screen
Let us find out his BMI numbers. Shahrukh Khan is 53, his height is 5 feet 8 inches and weight 73 Kg. We can calculate his BMI out of this information. His weight is normal but in borderline with overweight level.
The result suggests that Shahrukh Khan’s body weight is perfect. But internal organs may not be so perfect.
Cigarette smoking causes chronic obstructive pulmonary disease that significantly reduces physical stamina. However, smoking does not affect all people in the same way. It depends on one’s immune mechanism. Some smokers live one hundred years, while some die from smoking, related diseases in their early ages.
Apart from the smoking habit, Shahrukh lives a very healthy life. He takes physical workout like religion. He follows a strict diet plan. He eats only high protein less carbohydrate food and drinks fatless milk and a huge quantity of water.
However, we never know if he has that stamina the way it looks like. Salman Khan also looks healthy but it appeared he takes several medicines including blood pressure medicine when he was in prison.
It is doubtful if Shahrukh is so healthy as he looks like in the camera. There is also speculation if a six-pack is real or artificial.
