Ramaiya Vastavaiya hero Girish Kumar: From fat guy to fit dude!

The new guy on the Bollywood block used to be super plump at one point of time  

Girish Kumar will be seen romancing smarty chick Shruti Haasan in PrabhuDeva’s next, Ramaiya Vastavaiya. Films were always on Kumar’s to-do list – not surprising,  since he belongs to the Taurani family, and mind you, everybody knows the Tauranis in B-town. So it shouldn’t come as a surprise that the handsome bloke decided to give films a shot.

But the real revelation is that Girish used to very fat, just like some other star kids – Jackky Bhagnani, Sonam Kapoor, Sonakshi Sinha and Arjun Kapoor...quite a long list, eh?

Kumar Taurani, Girish’s dad is extremely proud of the fact that his fat son showed great commitment to losing weight and finally attained his goal of looking like a cute hunk.  The curly hair, the puppy-like innocent eyes make him look very unconventional, not the usual Bollywood material. And, we hear, the fitness regime picked up pace when he was shooting for his first film. A trainer from South Africa was hired to help Girish lose those pounds and achieve six-pack abs in three weeks – which he did.

Now that does inspire us to get into the fitness grind? Well…a little!
