Talking about his prep for his character, Shardul Thakur, Rajkummar Rao shares, “When our director Harshvardhan told me that I needed to gain muscle definition for the role the only thought I had was I’ll have to give up on my food. It wasn’t easy at all but the excitement for the script is what made me do it. I started with working out well before the shoot commenced, I used to hit the gym every day for at least 2 hours including shoot days that went on for 12 hours.”
“Being a vegetarian, it was tough to gain all this muscle and I was always very sure that I never wanted to take any kind of steroids. I never skipped my workout and never cheated on my diet. I would stare at the food everyone else was having and I’d often say, 'last day pe I'll eat all the mithaai'. I’m very glad that Badhaai Do gave me this opportunity to change my physique completely. I can’t wait for people to watch our beautiful film,” the actor adds.
