Anil Kapoor is called the most handsome hunk of Bollywood. He is very conscious about his fitness and this is clearly visible on his body as well. Anil Kapoor is all set to host 'Bigg Boss OTT 3' and you will see him hosting soon. Earlier on Yoga Day, the actor had a special conversation with Presswire 18 Times and revealed interesting things about his health.How do you celebrate World Yoga Day?
I have been practicing yoga for many years and I believe that there is nothing better than yoga for health. It not only activates all the joints of your body, but also activates every part of your body physically and mentally. There is nothing better than Indian yoga in the whole world. We have given yoga to the whole world.

, Recently, megastar Amitabh Bachchan wrote on social media that once you start using it, many hours pass by. Do you also spend many hours on social media?
I was once listening to Denzel Washington (Hollywood filmmaker) saying that there should be some days when you should keep a digital fast. Like sometimes you decide that you will keep a fast or you will not eat after a certain time in the day. So now we will have to do all these things from our phones too. Mobile fast should now become a part of life. This is my suggestion to people. I myself also follow this rule.

Have reels and social media made entertainment difficult on TV and OTT?
Hey, all this keeps happening throughout life. I have been working for so many years, sometimes it happens that things go wrong, sometimes they say what will happen now that TV has come, what will happen now that video has come, what will happen now that satellite has come, what will happen now that OTT has come, so all this keeps happening. Content keeps getting created. You just have to do your work well. You make such a film that people forget the reel and watch it. A time will come when even reel will get competition. Then that thing will be better than reel. Then the reel makers will get tensed. So all this will keep going on. You just keep doing your work and try to do such work that reels and memes are created.

, You are going to host 'Bigg Boss OTT Season 3'. What will be your strategy while hosting the show. And did you think about comparison with Salman Khan?
Now the show will tell what my strategy will be. I will try to bring out some things in me which people do not know till now. People must have seen some of my things in films. I will try to show people some things that I am in real life. Every person's way of thinking, way of seeing, way of talking is different. So it can be said that some things that the audience has seen in my characters and some things that the audience has not seen till now, both will be seen in this show. As far as my comparison with Salman is concerned, he is like my brother. I have also talked to him. We keep talking often. So as much as I am happy for him, he is more happy for me than that.

, What is your favourite show on OTT?
My favourite show is The Night Manager. Not because it is my show, but because I like both the international and Indian versions. The show is entertaining and has a huge scope. Wherever I go, people still talk about it. Many times it happens that if you don't go to award shows, you don't get an award. But for this show, an award has been sent to my home because whatever I do, I do it from the heart.

– Due to adult content and abusive language, there is often talk of censorship on OTT. But then some people also talk about freedom of expression. What is your stand on this?
I think you should know about the country you live in. If you live here, you cannot think that you are living in some other world where things are different. There should be freedom but we should also follow civilisation, culture and moral values. The knowledge that our parents and elders have given us is also very important. So all this should move forward together. It should be progressive, but it should not be so progressive that it hurts anyone. According to me, there should be self-regulation.
