Celebrity kids are shedding extra kilos in a bid to get that svelte and sexy look for B-town Sharon Stone’s “stick-thin” figure is a hot topic these days. The Hollywood actress offered plenty to talk about as she sported a new svelte and sexy look at an event in Beverly Hills recently.
And even though some have accused the 51-year-old of turning into a “lollipop lady” (thanks to her head looking disproportionate large in comparison to her body), celeb watchers across the globe are busy searching for the secret behind Sharon’s new look.
Back home in India, our very own star kids too are sweating it out to cut extra flab to ensure a smooth entry into the league of Bollywood A-listers. Prominent names include Sonam Kapoor, Adhyayan Suman, Jackky Bhagnani and Mimoh Chakraborty.
While Shekhar Suman’s son Adhyayan has gone from 110 kg to 85 kg for his debut film Haal-E-Dil, producer Vashu Bhagnani’s son Jackky has shed 60 kg from his 130-kg frame to flaunt a well-toned body in his upcoming debut Kal Kissne Dekha.
Anil Kapoor’s daughter Sonam and Mithun Chakraborty’s son Mimoh have similar stories. They also lost oodles of weight for their debut films Saawariya and Jimmy respectively.
“Jackky was around 130 kg when he came to me and he lost 60 kg in less than two years for his debut. He worked religiously for his body and put in efforts like a dedicated professional to achieve a lean look. Now he is absolutely fit,” celebrity trainer Satyadev ‘Satya’ Chaurasia, who also trained Ahdyayan, says. “Adhyayan was overweight when he was in his mid-teens. When he was 15, his weight reached the 110-mark.
He used to come to my gym with his father. In fact, he got a complex from his father’s chiselled body and started working out. Even now, he is still a bit on the higher side with a waistline of around 34 and a not-yet stable weight range,” says Satya, who boasts of a clientele that includes Hrithik Roshan, Rani Mukerji, Saif Ali Khan, Esha Deol, Viveik Oberoi and
industrialist Anil Ambani.
Mimoh, on the other hand, was asked by director B. Subhash, who made Mithun’s Disco Dancer, to transform from an overweight kid to being fit enough to enter Bollywood.
“Mimoh was extremely addicted to burgers and was asked to stay away from them. He had to workout and diet to keep himself fit for three years. It was difficult, but at least he managed to cut the flab for his first film,” a close friend of the newcomer says.
Sonam, who flaunted an ultra-slim figure in Delhi-6, was overweight while she was assisting Sanjay Leela Bhansali before she was offered the lead in Saawariya. She is reported to have taken it as a challenge and went for dieting and weight reduction under the supervision of celebrity trainer Sherveer Vakil.
Actor Shatrughan Sinha’s daughter Sonakshi also worked hard to lose 26 kilos last year, which helped her grab eyeballs as the only woman to model for a menswear line at the Lakme Fashion Week in Mumbai.
For Adhyayan, staying fit is more important that being muscular. “I’m not after any six or eight packs. I just want to look fit on screen,” he says. Jackky adds, “Obesity is the biggest disease plaguing mankind. Your self-confidence is low and you become mentally sick. There was a time when I used to feel conscious because of my weight. I was never at ease. It was a very bad phase in my life.”
