Farhan Akhtar recently went through a body transformation for his upcoming film ‘Toofan’. He had to forgo his built physique and gain 15 kg in six weeks.
Akhtar opened up about how unusual the experience was for him, “Irrespective of my craft, I choose to live a healthy and disciplined lifestyle. I’ve always refrained from indulging in things that could have adverse effects on my body, so it was a challenge for me to adapt to a way of living that was completely contrary with a monitored exercise regime, less physical activity, and high consumption of fats, carbs, and starch. It was tough; I balanced consumption of fried food; the starch and fats made up for it. That’s how I gained an extra 15 kilos!” The Asian Age reported.
‘Toofan’, also starring Mrunal Thakur, will release on 18th September.
