Model turned actor, Arjun Rampal has turned 45 today, but age is just a number for this hottie who only seems to be getting younger with each passing year. A doting husband to former model, Mehr Jesia, and a father to two gorgeous girls, Myraa and Mahikaa, Arjun is one of those few actors who can strike a perfect balance between work and family and not let down one for the other. His last film, Daddy, based on the life of gangster turned politician, Arun Gawli, received mixed reviews from critics and audiences. However, everyone just had one thing to say—Arjun was effortlessly impeccable in his performance as Gawli. His journey as an actor may have started slow but after playing a supporting role in Don: The Chase Begins and Rock On, he sure proved his calibre as an actor. His role in Abhishek Kapoor’s Rock On alongside Farhan Akhtar, even bagged him the National Award.

The actor recently wrapped up shoot in the picturesque locales of Leh Ladakh for his next film, Paltan, helmed by JP Dutta. It’s a film `based on the 1962-Indo-China war and also stars Sonu Sood, Suniel Shetty, Jimmy Shergill and Jackie Shroff in pivotal roles. Apart from acting, Rampal is also extremely fond of sports and fitness. His Instagram profile is filled with pics of him working out. His rock solid abs, is motivation enough for us to hit the gym with vengeance. If we can look even half as good as Rampal, at 45, it would be a blessing! Don’t you think? Well, as the actor turns a year older today, here’s taking a look at some of his Instagram posts which prove why he is one of the hottest actors Bollywood will ever have.
