Although actor Kunal Kapoor has always maintained a fit and muscular body, his next project required him to gain weight. So the 38-year-old underwent tough training sessions and gained 12 kgs.

“I have been training intensely for the last six months. I have always been fit but this is the fittest and the most muscular I have ever been. I play a warrior in the film and I hope my hard work gets noticed,” says Kapoor, who has been part of films such as Rang De Basanti (2006), Bachna Ae Haseeno (2008) and Luv Shuv Tey Chicken Khurana (2012).

The actor went through intensive ­workout ­sessions, as he was required to lose weight for a certain duration and then gain it back.
