Kunal Kapoor whose last Bollywood venture was Gauri Shinde’s critically acclaimed Dear Zindagi has also won many rave reviews for his multilingual epic historical drama, Veeram. The 39-year-old actor is now prepping up for Tigmanshu Dhulia’s Raagdesh but has hit headlines for the amazing transformation he has gone through to get into the skin of his character in Veeram.
Taking us through his amazing journey towards fitness, Kunal took to his Instagram to post a collage chronicling the secret to his perfect muscular body. Captioned as, “6 months, 23 days, 12 hours and 232 protein shakes later! #transform,” the click shows the actor from a pot-bellied man to a hotbod charmer.
Truly an inspiration!
Kunal has sported two looks in Veeram. While for his first look the actor had to gain 12 kgs, for another he had to sweat hard to achieve this drool worthy muscular frame.
Speaking about the all the hard work that has gone behind his current look, Kunal told a news portal, “I was training like a beast for almost six months. I have always been fit but this is the fittest and most muscular I have ever been. I play a warrior in the film and I wanted to make sure I felt and looked like one.”
The fifth installment in Jayaraj’s Navarasa series, Veeram is an adaptation of William Shakespeare’s Macbeth and has also taken inspiration from the story of a Kerala warrior, Chanthu Chekavar.
Co-produced by Chandramohan D. Pillai and Pradeep Rajan, the movie also made it to the nomination list of the 89th Academy Awards.
