His recent transformation for his upcoming movie ‘Badhaai Do’ which is a sequel to ‘Badhaai Ho’ was a long journey. Sharing his transformation on Instagram, he wrote, “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.”
3. Farhan Akhtar
Farhan Akhtar left no stone unturned in order to do justice to his character for his movie ‘Toofan’ which was released on July 16th, 2021. Farhan gave the audience his best.

The stars behind the scenes – @samir_jaura @drewnealpt @anand.physio (sic).” Farhan was 100% dedicated throughout”.
4. Ranveer Singh
Over a few years, Ranveer Singh has transformed several times for his blockbuster movies. The transformation from a muscular person in his movie ‘Simmba’ to a fit sports person in ‘83’ required intense hard work. ‘83’ is a biopic of Kapil Dev, an Indian cricket player. The challenging part was that Ranveer was 86kg in ‘Simmba’ and had to lose 12-14 kg. It was a difficult, slow, and emotional process to shed the muscle that he so painstakingly built. With the help of Rajiv (Jifit) and PodSupply (celebrity tiffin service provider), Ranveer said the journey was made easy and he achieved the target which he was happy and satisfied with.
5. Vicky Kaushal
‘Sardar Udham Singh’ starring Vicky Kaushal was much awaited and anticipated film of 2021. The movie is based on the life of an Indian revolutionary who later assassinated the then former Punjab governor Michael O’Dwyer in London.

The actor said that he was required to play a 20-year-old Udham Singh along with a 30 and 40-year-old version of him. He said: “I lost 15 kilos in 2 months and then I had around 22 days to gain all of that back so that I could play a 40-year-old.” Vicky showed a lot of courage and dedication and his performance was outstanding.
