From the time an actor receives the script to the final frame which releases on the big screen, there is a lot of prep that goes through in an actor’s mind and body. They go through endless work hours and body changes to suit the role, which can get emotionally, mentally and physically exhaustive. As they say, Bollywood films are not all songs and dances. Stepping into a character’s shoes is definitely not easy!
If the action-packed sequences and the heavy punches in the latest film, ‘War’ impressed you, we are sure you might be thinking about how Hrithik Roshan, at 45, looks just as young as Tiger Shroff.
While it is no secret that Hrithik Roshan has been setting the standard for sculpted body on the big screen and off it, the actor, in a new video posted on Instagram talked about the transformation he had to go through, waging a war inside his body. As he admitted, it wasn’t easy one bit.
Captioned as, “The other side of K.A.B.I.R,”, the video takes fans through the entire fitness journey, which took all of two months. The chronicle traces the journey and it is anything but extraordinary.
In the video, the father of two can be heard saying that he needs to work through fast to get rid of the extra fat he had to gain for his role in Super 30. From home workouts, diet and intense hours spent with his trainer, Hrithik Roshan transformed into a mean machine, overcoming all challenges.
The gruesome efforts took to him and the actor can be heard saying, “never tell anyone that it takes so much hard work to build a body, otherwise nobody will come to build it.”
The efforts he put in can be seen on the camera. Even at times that the actor did feel like quitting, he kept going to set an example that nothing is impossible for his two kids. How brave!
Even while promoting the film, Hrithik, who also suffered from a bad slip disc injury a year back, talked about the recovery and healing, adding that working on War was physically tiring and exhaustive, making him almost quit at times. “The biggest war of life has clearly been completing the film ‘War’. After ‘Super 30’, the fat content of my body was too much. My body had become lazy and I was given only 2 months to get in shape and it wasn’t enough. I started this film on a bit of a backfoot because my body was not ready.”
“My work in this film was 24 hours. I was either visualizing, or I was doing clothes, or I was doing my dialogues, or I was icing my knee, or I had to go see my doctor, or I was working out in the gym or physio, so I was doing everything for the film throughout the day.”
Needless to say, the comment section on Instagram was filled with comments from celebs and fans alike:
Tiger Shroff, who considers him an idol added this, Sir bade hoke aap k tarah banna hai 😍😍😍🙌🙌🙌🔥🔥🔥
Fellow fitness inspiration, Katrina Kaif said, “Hrithikkkkkkkk 🌟outstanding”
Some also said that watching Hrithik workout set new goals for them:
“I was planning to hit the gym before this video. And now 🤔 🧐 dayumm”
Well, need anymore excuses to skip working out?
