Bollywood star Rajkummar Rao fasts every Friday, continuing his late mother’s tradition of doing so, the actor has said.

Speaking about diet during a promotion event for his new film ‘Mr & Mrs Mahi’, Rao said, “I observe a fast on Fridays. It is something my mother would do for Santoshi Maa.”

He started the practice at 16 and it’s been a part of his life since then. Despite challenges, he sticks to the routine.


“Sometimes, I do not eat any meals, and sometimes, when I am working and I need to put in a lot of energy that day, I have one meal at night,” he explained.
