Fat to Fit – Amir Khan’s Dramatic Body Transformation

If you’re an Amir Khan fan, you  must have seen his body transformation video. The video about his weight gain and weight loss has been going viral since its release. Facebook and every other social media site are having recordings where the actor is flaunting his pot belly. The most interesting thing in the videos is you’ll see Amir binging on foods like samosas and vada pav to gain weight. While the first half is this, the second half of the video shows the star involved in a rigorous exercise and weight training to return to his six-pack body figure.

So, why did Amir Khan go through such a dramatic body transformation? The answer is – for his upcoming movie Dangal. A film where he plays the role of Mahavir Singh Phogat, father of wrestler Geeta Phogat. Geeta is the India’s first ever gold medalist in wrestling at the Commonwealth Games in 2010.

Amir dismissed using bodysuit for his character and accepted the challenge of going into the skin of his character.

“When you put on weight, it affects your breathing and body language. That naturally reflects on your performance. You cannot get that from a bodysuit,” he said.

The actor admits he’d a gala time while putting on weight as he could eat all of his favorite foods. “I ate everything that I was not supposed to eat otherwise. I had samosa, vada pav, chocolate, cakes, brownies… I indulged in everything. Then when I had to lose the weight, I had a very different diet of 25 gm of upma and papaya. After gym, a glass of protein shake,” said the actor.

However the superstar found the weight loss program very difficult to follow. Amir in his own words described his strict weigh loss regime highly unhealthy and strictly advises everyone not to try that at home.

PS: Dangal will hit the screens on December 21.
