Kunal Roy Kapur has��been preparing for his new role in his forthcoming film for which he has apparently lost over 20 kilos.
Talking about the weight loss,��New Indian Express reported the actor stating, “I have lost weight for a thriller called Exit made by first-time director Dhwanil Mehta. We just finished the shooting for this feature film.”
He revealed how he kept his weight down and about getting fit, he actor explained, “I am going to maintain this weight loss; or probably get leaner so that different roles open up for me. I have to stop eating sugar, biscuits and all. You can put on a fat suit to look fat but to look thin you have to be thin. My aim is not to get six pack abs, I just want to be healthy and stay fit and I am enjoying the process.”
Roy Kapur was also a part of Anthony D’Souza’s ‘Azhar’ (2015) where he played a lawyer. “Throughout Azhar, I am wearing a fat suit. I had already lost 7-8 kilos by the time the director Tony D Souza began shooting. By the next schedule, I had lost 10-12 kilos more so the fat suit became bigger. As the film progressed, they kept increasing the fat suit as I kept reducing,” he explained.
Roy Kapur was also asked about the vanity bug, in which he replied, “No. I think an actor has to let go of his vanity. Or he will end up staring at the mirror. Only looking beautiful is not acting; it is modeling. I am not here to look beautiful or handsome, I am here to look like the character and try to convince you that I am that person.”
