An insider says, “The first film in the series became the highest-grossing Punjabi movie till date. Known for his boy-next-door looks, Diljit needed to achieve a ripped body for the sequel. He reached out to Ranbir’s trainer, Pradeep Bhatia, who then trained Diljit to achieve the look. He spent six months training Diljit to get a well-sculpted body. The transformation has been amazing, and can be in his next.”

When contacted, Diljit says it took a lot of hard work to train to get the physique that was required for the movie. “I would train for hours daily because we had a deadline to meet. It was very intense training. I trained under Pradeep, who is known to have trained some great actors in the past. I’m glad that the hard work and the gruesome hours have paid off, and that people have liked the new look.”
