Mumbai, Feb. 13 -- Guess who are the newest gym buddies in Bollywood? Well, they are Aamir Khan and Sanjay Dutt, who recently started bonding over their exercise regimens on the sets of their upcoming film, P.K.

Apparently, right before the project went on the floors, director Rajkumar Hirani zeroed in on a far off location - a 300-year-old haveli in Mandawa, Rajasthan - for his cast and crew.

or the first three days, everyone including Aamir stayed there but later, the actor faced a bit of a problem. "Aamir couldn't set up a gym in the haveli since it did not have the required amenities," says an insider close to the project. "And since he needs to maintain his physique for Dhoom:3, he requested Hirani if he could shift to a nearby hotel. Hirani had no problems," adds the source.

Once Aamir reached the hotel, he immediately converted a conference room into a gym where he works out every day. And soon, even Sanjay, who's known for maintaining his chiseled physique, joined Aamir.

"Since Sanjay sir is also particular about his workouts, he joined Aamir in the hotel. Except for their stay and workouts, both the actors make sure they hang out with the entire team while they shoot in and around Mandawa," adds the insider. Even after repeated attempts, Hirani and Aamir couldn't be reached for a comment.
