Actor Hrithik Roshan gave up his usual diet of salads and veggies and binged on bhajiyas and vada paav for six months to prepare for his role as a paraplegic in Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s new film Guzaarish.
The actor put on 8 kilos to go from 70 to 78 kilos, and his waist size went from 30 to 34 inches after gorging on snacks and fast food from Mumbai streets.
Hrithik is being trained by celebrity trainer Satyajit Chaurasiya, who gave actor Aamir Khan his famous eight pack abs for Ghajini. Chaurasiya says Hrithik’s diet was drastically altered: “I asked him to have the meal provided on the set, which is very oily. If he felt hungry, he was asked to eat vada paav.”
Bhansali contributed by ordering greasy samosas and buttered popcorn on the sets. Chaurasiya says, “He ate what he found tasty.” Now Hrithik is back to losing weight for the last schedule of the film, which will last two weeks.
“He is training for 45 minutes every day, doing weight training and cardio,” says Chaurasiya. The actor is back to eating egg whites and salads.
