Actors tend to bring about extreme changes to their physical appearance to do justice to the roles they play in films.
Aamir Khan, whose last release (PK; 2014) created box-office records, will have his next Bollywood outing after a two-year gap. The actor’s wrestling-based film Dangal, which is being directed by Nitesh Tiwari, is set for a Christmas 2016 release.
The actor also reveals that while heavy weight training is part of his current regime, he is ensuring that he doesn’t lose fat. "I don’t think I need [to put on] any more weight, because I have to lose it all to play a 27-year-old man in the same film. So, the heavier I get, the tougher it will be for me to cut down later on," says Aamir, who will be seen as an ex-wrestler in Dangal.
