So the Ishaqzaade (2012) actor decided to build his stamina. “Arjun started training extensively. Initially, he just began to run for a longer duration,” says the source. That’s not all. The young star also needed to act while running, which was easier said than done. “In addition to that, he underwent strenuous training to be able to match Ranveer’s stamina,” says the source.
When contacted, Arjun confirms the development. “Running in a film is an art that needs to be learnt and mastered. On the last day of the shoot, when I was able to run neck to neck with Ranveer, I was happy that I had finally achieved something,” says Arjun. The film, directed by Ali Abbas Zafar, also features actor Priyanka Chopra.
