Varun Dhawan is awaiting the box office verdict on Kalank, which hit the screens today. Sharing his journey of transforming into Zafar for the period saga, Varun posted a BTS video which is a compilation of the gym training he underwent for the movie. The Judwaa 2 actor is seen trying different workouts with his trainer, while he chronicles the physique he had to achieve for the character.
Varun tagged the training for Kalank as physically and mentally, the most difficult one. The actor revealed that he had to gain muscle on arms and also train his body for his action scenes in the film. "The pain you feel today is the strength you will feel tomorrow,” says Varun. To achieve the strength to play Zafar, Varun would train two to three times a day. Check out his journey below:
It was not just gym training but Varun also tried different diets to achieve the desired result. From going on a Keto diet to playing around with sushi and rice in his meals, Varun has done it all.
Kalank released in 4000 screens across the country today and we are expecting the film to rake in a phenomenal figure at the ticket windows. It'll be interesting to see if Kalank will beat Kesari, Gully Boy and Total Dhamaal to become the biggest opener of the year.
Featuring the ensemble cast of Varun Dhawan, Alia Bhatt, Aditya Roy Kapur, Sonakshi Sinha, Sanjay Dutt and Madhuri Dixit Nene in key roles, Kalank is directed by 2 States helmer Abhishek Varman and is bankrolled by Nadiadwala and Grandson, Dharma Productions and Fox Star Studios.
