Television and film actor Ram Kapoor has stunned his fans by his massive weight loss. The actor, who looks almost recognisable in his new pictures as he went from 130 kgs to a much slimmer look, has now spoken about his journey from fat to fit.

Talking about his weight loss journey, the actor told Mumbai Mirror in an interview, “I was 130 kgs when I started and I want to lose another 25-30 kgs.” The actor revealed that his journey started two years ago at the age of 43 and added, “I decided that if I wanted to do achieve my weight goals, I will have to take time off from work. It would need to be a substantial length of time — six months to a year.”
