Salman Khan is a fitness enthusiast and often mentors many budding Bollywood talents, who are willing to attain a perfect body.

The latest one to be trained by the superstar is Siddharth Nigam, who plays Ashoka in Colors' popular show "Chakravartin Ashoka Samrat".

The young actor, a national-level gold medalist gymnast, met Salman in Karjat, where the superstar has been shooting for his upcoming Diwali release, "Prem Ratan Dhan Payo".

"Salman has been stationed at ND Studios in Karjat for over a month now shooting for Sooraj Barjatya's Prem Ratan Dhan Payo. He jogs around the grounds and during one such run, he met the young actor and took an immediate liking to the 15-year-old Siddharth, who's also into gymnastics, and asked him to join him in his gym. Siddharth is regularly spotted at the gym Salman has built for himself in the studio complex," a source told DNA.

Admitting the same, Siddharth told the daily: "We first met through Manoj Joshi (who plays Chanakya on the show). We have often worked out in the same gym together."

"Salman sometimes even supervises people working out and corrects them if they go wrong. His PRDP co-stars Armaan Kohli and Neil Nitin Mukesh also work out at his gym. Buzz is, he often invites people he likes to come and work out with him. Salman is of the opinion that as long as you aren't wasting time and genuinely want to look good, you're most welcome to work out with him," the source added.

Meanwhile, Siddharth surprised all with his stunning dance performance in one of the episodes of "Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa 8", where he made a guest appearance.

On the other hand, the "Bajrangi Bhaijaan" actor is gearing up for the release of his production venture "Hero", which will mark the debut of Aditya Pancholi's son Sooraj Pancholi and Suniel Shetty's daughter Athiya Shetty.
