Bollywood’s Mr. Perfectionist, Aamir Khan, has put his blood and sweat into the making of his upcoming movie ‘Dangal’. The trailer of this movie created a buzz all around and gathered accolades from all over the globe.
Recently, Aamir was present at the promotional event of ‘Dangal’ at a preview theater. The makers of ‘Dangal’ launched a making video of the film, primarily focusing on Aamir Khan’s body transformation for the character of ex-wrestler Mahavir Singh Phogat.
Aamir shared his experience about the two extremely distinct looks of Mahavir Singh Phogat in the movie. While a major chunk of the film requires the actor to weigh 90-95 kgs, i.e for the older version of Mahavir Phogat, for the younger version, Aamir had to weigh no more than 70 -75 kgs.
Aamir decided to start with the fat role. So in the beginning of the video you see a very fat and bulky Aamir, weighing 97 kgs with 38% body fat!
Though the weight gaining process was not very difficult, it was extremely unhealthy and taxing for his health. The actor even suffered from breathing issues and had multiple injuries while wrestling in that gigantic body structure.
But the challenging part was yet to come. After filming for the older bit, it was time for Aamir to lose 25 kgs in 25 weeks for the younger part.
Aamir started shooting with the fat part of his role as he wanted to end up getting fit by the end of shooting for ‘Dangal’.
The initial phase was very strenuous, but with a lot of hard work and dedication, the ‘Dangal’ actor made it to the desired look. He followed a rigorous fitness regimen along with long hours of workout to get into shape. In less than 6 months Aamir made it to weighing 70 kgs with 9% body fat.
Aamir has done a phenomenal job by putting every possible effort to make ‘Dangal’ a success. Check out the wonderful video of his shocking body transformation.
