Actor Vikram Mastal is currently seen playing the role of Farhan in the web series Assi Nabbe Pure Sau. The Story of the show is inspired by a real life incident which took place in Pakistan. The character Farhan is an angry young cop who is very relatable to the audience.
Talking about the character, Vikram says, "I was lean while I did a crackdown but for Assi Nabbe Pure Sau, I was skeptical while taking up the character as I had to gain weight for the project and that I had to look lean for the other after that shoot. But then the weight gaining experience of Salman Khan in Sultan inspired me to take up the project. I made sure that I will work on it and get the look. Then I finally said yes to the project."

Sharing how he gained 8 kgs for the project to get into the shape of the character, he shared, "I had to have a little heavy body like a policeman so that people can relate to it. So, I stopped doing martial arts and all cardio exercises, swimming, cycling. I started eating more rice, butter, cheese, which I usually avoid as per diet plan. I got to eat everything- pastries, sweets, everything that I usually avoid. So it was just like a cheat day period for me. But I additionally supported thus working out a habit with a little workout to make it look well shaped and not look disfigured. So, this is how I went from 85 kgs to 93 kgs."
Further he says, "I really enjoyed the process as it will benefit me and the makers as the character will become more relatable for the audience. And this period was also a delight as I got to eat as many delicacies that I can't eat because of a strict diet plan. But now, I have started cutting it down for my next project which will come soon."
