Aamir Khan

Aamir Khan

Aamir Khan is popularly known as the 'Mr. Perfectionist' of Bollywood and he doesn't miss a single chance to prove that he owns this title. Unlike many stars he does only one film in a year but with full dedication. There are many such qualities which differ him from all the other actors in the industry.

Aamir will be next seen in Nitesh Tiwari's 'Dangal' and will essay the character of Mahavir Phogat, the wrestler father of Geeta Phogat who won the first gold medal for India. Aamir was supposed to portray two looks for the same, one a young wrestler while the other a middle aged father of two daughters.

A 5 minute 20 seconds video went viral on the internet titled as 'Fat to Fit' which showed the transformation of Aamir Khan from a heavy weighted 97 Kg man to a fit and fine Aamir flaunting his 6 pack abs. Aamir says in the video that director Nitesh Tiwari asked him to shoot for the young man's portion first but Aamir refused to do so as he said gaining weight is easier but losing it is very difficult and if they shoot for the younger portion first then he will end up putting on more weight and there will be no reason for him to lose it.

Aamir also said that he enjoyed gaining weight as he ate almost all the things he loved without keeping any doubts in the mind. He hogged on his favourite ice-creams, samosas, chocolates and more things. In a few months Aamir gained 97 kgs and was looking like an teddy bear and his son found him very soft and cuddly.

Finally the 80% portions which needed a bulky Aamir was shot and then it was the time to lose all the excess weight and return to his six-pack abs. This five months journey was so difficult for him because he faced many problems while exercising. He was trained by his fitness trainer Rahul Bhatt and Rakesh Udiyar who planned a strict diet for him with certain type of workout. They made him eat a customised diet plan by renowned dietician Dr Nikhil Dhurandhar on calorific deficit, in which the diet would oscillate from 1,800 Kcal to 2,500 Kcal. They also made him to lift a lot of weights but the actor refused to do so as he found it very heavy and suffered problems while breathing. But after few months he started to notice the change in himself and was happy with the fact that his body is returning into his initial shape.

The glow on his face after gaining his six-pack abs is just hard to miss which is inspirational in the other way as it shows the dedication of the actor towards a certain role. And the video comes to an end with a smile on Aamir's face showing him how satisfied he is with his look.
