Dhruva is the Telugu remake of 2015’s Tamil hit Thani Oruvan. It stars Ram Charan and Rakul Preet Singh.

Celebrity fitness trainer Rakesh Udiyar collaborated with actor Ram Charan for his forthcoming Telugu actioner Dhruva on a special request from superstar Salman Khan.

“I’ve never seen somebody so dedicated about their body, but Charan is an exception. Salman sir told me to help him. I even consulted with Aamir Khan sir before flying down to Hyderabad to train Charan,” Udiyar, who trained Salman in Sultan and Aamir in Dangal, said in a video.

In Dhruva, Udiyar worked with Charan briefly to attain a certain physique for the film’s title song Dhruva Dhruva.

The song was choreographed by Mumbai-based Bosco Martis.

Directed by Surender Reddy, the film is the official remake of last year’s Tamil hit, Thani Oruvan.

Ram Charan plays an IPS officer in the film, which also stars Rakul Preet Singh and Arvind Swami. It will release on Friday.
