Be it either to get in shape for their roles or simply to be at their fittest best, Bollywood hotties are getting weight conscious and how. From actor Salman Khan to John Abraham, and Priyanka Chopra to Sushmita Sen, here’s a lowdown of some of the actors who are on a weight-loss spree.
The actor, who will play the role of legendary footballer Shibdas Bhaduri, in Shoojit Sircar’s next, 1911, is undergoing a weight loss regime to look the part of the lean footballer. “A footballer’s strength lies in his legs. John realises that and has already started working out keeping that in mind,” a source had said.
After her marriage to filmmaker Aditya Chopra in April, the actor will be seen on screen in ­filmmaker Pradeep Sarkar’s Mardaani. For her role of a cop working in Mumbai crime branch unit, Rani has lost a­ considerable amount of weight. “Rani has trained hard to make her character of a cop look convincing on screen,” says Rafiq Gangjee from the production house.
Sonakshi’s weight loss has been more than ­palpable, lately. Talking about it, she said, “I’m not doing anything strenuous or unachievable. I am just being regular about my fitness ­schedule. Earlier I used to come back from work after a long day and won’t have any time to look after myself. Today I know that I have to go to the gym even on outdoor shoots.”
