The 73-year-old 'Piku' star, who famously played a chef in 'Cheeni Kum', said he is a 'bad eater' whose eating habits are very dissimilar to people who follow a diet.

"I am a bad eater. I don't follow any routine... I started going to the gym about five-six years back. I never used to do any kind of exercise. Most of the times when I was working on my earlier films, I never thought about it, or I wasn't advised about it, or perhaps I didn't have the time at all," Bachchan said.

He was speaking at the launch of actress Shilpa Shetty Kundra's book 'The Great Indian Diet'.

Shilpa, who has co-authored the book along with nutritionist Luke Coutinho, said the duo took nearly three years to pen the book.

Actor Anil Kapoor, 58, who has penned the foreword of the book, said his mantra of staying fit is a healthy lifestyle despite the fact that many people say he is not aging.

'Dilwale' actor Varun Dhawan said he wants his father, filmmaker David Dhawan to shed some weight.
