John Abraham: I feel like breaking down and crying

Fitness freak John Abraham is on a weight loss program for his upcoming movie, Shootout at Wadala

John Abraham is on a diet that allows him to eat nothing apart from raw fish and sushi just to get into the skin of Manya Surve, a character he will be playing in Sanjay Gupta’s Shootout at Wadala. The notorious gangster Manya was killed in one of the first police encounters of the ’80s. And to play the role John has to lose around 20kgs. “Manya Surve has to look really lean in the first 20 minutes of the film, till he gets into jail and starts working out. So my character has to go through an actual physical transformation in the film,” John said in an interview. While losing and gaining weight for movies is a trend now, the task gets much tougher for John who is suffering from acute muscle malfunction, a condition where stressing his muscles could adversely affect his brain and neurological system. “At times I feel like breaking down and crying. People always talk about losing weight but it is a very difficult process. If not supervised properly, it can go really wrong. But thankfully my trainer Vinod Channa has been religiously working with me on it,” the actor said.

What’s more, along with rigorous diets and fitness programs the actor even has to squeeze Marathi lessons into his schedule. “John has never used rough languages in his films so far. I want him to have the basic knowledge of colloquial Marathi as it will help him grasp the minute details of his character,” director Sanjay Gupta, said in an interview. It sure looks like a lot of pain and hard work for John but guess only time will tell if all that work has paid off or not. Till then we have our fingers crossed.Subscribe to me on YouTube

    罗杰.彭罗斯 谈唯物主义:“ what I am partly sainyg is that those words (materialist) are a bit out of date, because the contemporary understanding of material is very different now from the way it used to be. If we consider what matter really is, we now understand it as much more of a mathematical thing. When these categories materialist’, idealist’ etc. were first coined, people thought of matter as a much more defined thing, something which is there’, and then you combine that with mysterious mind stuff which is floating around, which would be separate from it. But I think that matter itself is now much more of a mental substance; So before we have a deeper understanding of what is really going on, to talk about things in these terms is almost certainly limiting and inappropriate.”我所部份谈到的是,这些语汇(唯物主义的)有些过时了,因为当今对物质的理解已经与过去大不一样了。 如果来考虑物质到底是什么,我们现在知道,这不过是个数学玩意。如“唯物主义的、“唯心主义的”这类词语当初被造出时,人们把物质想成是一个确定的东西,一件在那里明摆着的东西,再把它与神奇飘忽的精神连接起来。但我现在认为,物质的本质是心灵的。 所以,在我们对真相有更深的了解之前,奢谈那些语汇几乎必然是局限的、不合适的。
