Fans have become accustomed to see artistes in Bollywood to transform themselves into the roles for their films. Aamir Khan was recently known to have put on weight for his role in ‘Dangal’ (2016), and now Hrithik Roshan did the same, gaining weight for his role in ‘Kaabil’.
According to Mumbai Mirror, Roshan’s role was that of a chubby man and Sanjay Gupta, the director for the film, was impressed with the actor’s dedication and commitment, “The transformation is not only dramatic but also extremely significant. The way Hrithik transforms himself is immensely impressive. More importantly he is completely captivated by the inner beauty of his love interest played by Yami Gautam.”
Gupta continued to say, “Despite being a global icon of sexiness and desirability, Hrithik completely ditched his Greek God avatar for the role.”
As well as gaining weight, Roshan had to lose some muscle also. As a result, he had to have a different diet also. A source close to the actor said, “Hrithik went all out to ensure that his character could look real. Hrithik was more than willing to ditch his sex appeal and chiseled abs to portray this character with total conviction.”
‘Kaabil’ is out on 25th January 2017, so the fans await to see what the film will be like.
