Actor Ali Fazal has lost more than 10kg for his role in the upcoming film Milan Talkies.
“It felt so good to know I could look both buff and lean if I put my heart to it. But I am a lean guy and I am most comfortable in this avatar. It takes a lot of focus and will to do it, especially the diet part,” Fazal said in a statement.
“My workout really helped because the only thing I had to do was run, nothing else,” he added.
In the Tigmanshu Dhulia film, Fazal plays a character from a small town near Lucknow.
The actor had put on more than 14kg before he began shooting for his web series Mirzapur. Dhulia required him to drop all the weight before the film went into production in March.
He was put on a keto diet, which is a no carbohydrate and sugar diet. His trainer also ensured he ran more than 5km a day to drop muscle and become lean.
