Randeep Hooda has shed the kilos while shooting for ‘Sarbjit’ and it seems the lady behind it is his sister Anjali who has stood by him through his weight loss.
Talking to Asian Age, Anjali said, “Randeep is a very motivated actor, he was determined to lose weight and look like a prisoner who wasn�۪t fed well. I couldn�۪t imagine what Sarabjit and his family have gone through and Randeep wanted to experience at least a part of that to bring out the right emotions. He always gets into the character of the part he has to play”.
“He was put on a low calories diet (LCD) followed by very low calorie diet (VLCD). He didn�۪t have much fat to lose, so we had to lose lean muscle as well as weight. Exercise was not allowed on such low calories since he had to conserve all the energy,” she continued, about Randeep’s diet.
She went on to talk in even more detail about what helped his shed the weight apart form his dietary changes, “First training was to cut off socially ��� no parties, no functions and no temptations with regards to food or alcohol. Chewing food was another part of training. Eating slowly was very important, as there was not much to eat. Vitamin supplements and small amount of protein was a part of diet. Frequent blood testing of electrolytes and blood pressure and ECG were also a part of his regimen”.
‘Sarbjit’ will have Randeep as protagonist and it is slated for release in May.
