Most actors spend their time in the gym to get into shapes and tone their bodies before starting a film. However, Aditya Roy Kapur underwent a body transformation of a different kind for Karan Johar’s Kalank. The magnum opus is one of the highly anticipated projects of the year.
Aditya, who is undoubtedly one of the fittest actors in the industry, had to lose muscle and sport a leaner physique for the film. He, along with the makers, wanted to keep it as real as it could get. Since the young star had bulked up for his previous film, he stopped working out entirely and resumed his regular diet to achieve his naturally lean frame.

Says a source, “Aditya enjoys going to the gym and most of his films in the past required him to sport a muscular physique. However, he had to lose all the muscle weight for Kalank, given that the film is a period drama and his look had to be natural and real typical to that particular era. Aditya stopped training in the gym and let go of his diet, eating just about anything to achieve the look.”
Aditya Roy Kapur is currently shooting for the next schedule of Kalank with Alia Bhatt. Post wrapping up the schedule of the period flick the Aashiqui 2 actor will start prepping for Mahesh Bhatt’s Sadak 2. He will reunite with his Kalank co-star Alia Bhatt for the same. The film also stars Varun Dhawan, Madhuri Dixit, Sanjay Dutt and Sonakshi Sinha in the primary roles and is directed by Abhishek Verman.
