Aamir Khan who is playing Mahavir Singh Phogat gained 28 kilos for his character in Dangal which is based on Mahavir Phogat’s daughters. But his journey to 98 kilos and back will surely inspire you in many ways!
Superstar Aamir Khan, who went through a body transformation for his forthcoming film Dangal, says it was one of the most dramatic ones in his career.
At an event he said, “I would like to mention that putting on weight and losing it so fast is very unhealthy. I did it for my film under the supervision of experts, but it is very unhealthy for any regular person.”
However, he said that his doctor suggested not trying such drastic weight and body transformation in future. But being a creative person, he tends to get excited to do everything if he gets a good script.
In the video, which also features nephew Imran Khan and wife Kiran Rao with son Azad, Aamir is emphasising that when you put on weight, it affects your breathing and body language. That naturally reflects on your performance. You cannot get that from a bodysuit.
But he had a gala time while putting on weight. “I ate everything that I was not supposed to eat otherwise. I had samosa, vada pav, chocolate, cakes, brownies… I indulged in everything. Then when I had to lose the weight, I had a very different diet of 25 gms of upma and papaya. After gym, a glass of protein shake,” says Aamir.
Aamir will be seen as Mahavir Singh Phogat, father of wrestler Geeta Phogat, who won India’s first ever gold medal in wrestling at the Commonwealth Games in 2010.
The biopic, directed by Nitesh Tiwari, is set to release on .
