You must’ve seen Aamir Khan’s amazing physical transformation for his upcoming film Dangal. Well he’s not the only actor who has risked it big time for a role! Here are 5 times Bollywood stars changed their physique for a film.
This week the thinking man’s star unveiled a his massively fit new look for Dangal. The amazing thing is, this is not the first time he’s done it for a film or even the first time he’s done for Dangal itself! Yes last year Aamir was seen in a heavy set grey-haired avatar for playing an ageing retired Mahavir Singh Phogat in the film. But now he has lost weight and gained muscle for the early portions of Dangal where he plays the wrestler in his prime.
Vidya gained 12 kilos for her role in The Dirty Picture as a sultry South siren. In her own words, “…this girl belongs to the South film industry and the actresses were mostly wholesome out there… if I don’t do it, I wouldn’t be doing justice to the role.” Touché!
For his role as an innocent Indian languishing away in a Pakistani Prison, Randeep lost 18 kilos in a month for Sarbjit. He had to be supervised by a doctor at all times. Now that’s dedication!
Bhumi Pednekar charmed everyone with her debut performance as a chubby woman who is neglected by her husband in Dum Laga Ke Haisha. So it was a total surprise when she turned up at the film’s premiere 20 kilos lighter. Apparently she had gained all that weight just to suit the role, and she says she’s willing to do it all over again!
For his role as a paraplegic in Guzaarish, director Sanjay Leela Bhansali asked Hrithik Roshan to not so much gain weight but stop his regular workout for a more a natural and authentic look. We’re sure that must’ve proven difficult for the famously fit star!
