New Delhi: Bollywood superstar Ranbir Kapoor’s bulked up physique for ‘Shamshera’ has broken the internet today. Photos of his transformation to play an out and out action hero has taken all over the social media and Ranbir revealed how he went beast mode to flaunt a six pack in ‘Shamshera’.
Ranbir said in a statement, “Karan’s brief to me was that he doesn’t want me to have a beach body. Here is Balli who has been born and brought up in the harshness of a cruel prison. He is from the 1800’s. Karan wanted me to have a bulked up workers body and I dived into it headlong.”
“This film physically was by far the most toughest for me because I am a thin guy. That's my natural build. So, to lose weight is easy for me. To build muscle is tougher for me,” he added. Ranbir’s personal trainer Kunal Gir pushed him to the hilt for his fabulous transformation in ‘Shamshera’.
Kunal said, “Ranbir had five meals a day. He was on a high protein and low carb diet and went through rigorous training five days a week! He had a cheat meal only once a week. We trained four days a week, each session was an hour long followed by a quick five minute high intensity cardio session.”
Ranbir, who is coming to the big screen four years after he delivered the blockbuster ‘Sanju’, is pitted against Sanjay Dutt who is playing an evil, merciless, cold-hearted brute force of nature, Shuddh Singh.
Directed by Karan Malhotra, this action extravaganza has been produced by Aditya Chopra and is set to release in Hindi, Tamil and Telugu on July 22. (UNI)
