Mithun Chakraborty's son Mimoh is quite happy after losing 15 kg in one month thanks to Suniel Shetty, who has cast him in Loot.
"Suniel sir is one of the best human beings I've met in my life. He's become like a second father specially in Bangkok where he completely took charge of me, forced me to go on a strict, oil-free diet and I've come back 15 kg lighter," Mimoh, whose debut film is Jimmy.
It all started when Mimoh did his first shot for Loot.
"Suniel sir saw me walking towards the camera and exclaimed, 'You're looking like a 70 mm frame'. He didn't mean that in any bad sense. But, you see, I've very broad shoulders. I've inherited these big bones and the muscular look from my beautiful mother (ex-actress Yogeeta Bali). And I thought there wasn't much I could do about it.
"But Suniel sir changed my entire appearance. Now I feel so much lighter. Of course, he says he's going to cut my salary for Loot by half because of what he has done to my bulk. I don't mind if he doesn't pay me."
Having inherited his father's incredible dancing shoes, does Mimoh feel the difference in his dancing as well?
"No, as a dancer I never felt the weight. My father has taught me to enjoy my dancing regardless of everything. But after having lost so much weight, I feel I'm ready to rock. My first film Jimmy has me in that over-muscular look, but from now on I intend to continue with the look prescribed by Suniel sir.
"In fact, we're soon shooting a music video for Loot. You've to see how lean Suniel sir, Govinda and I look. Suniel sir has lost more weight although he already had a superb physique."
Mimoh says that a beefy, muscular look doesn't suit the leading man.
"I feel the lean look that Suniel sir or Akshay Kumar has is the best. That's how I intend to look."
Added Suniel: "Mimoh is a wonderful child. When he came to Bangkok, I immediately saw he needed to lose weight. I cut down on his food and put him on a strict diet along with Govinda. They were given specially cooked food. With his new look in Loot, Mimoh is going to emerge as a potential star."
