#The journey was very scary. I reached 97 kilos and I had only five months to lose weight. I was worried that I will not lose, but I had too. It was the most difficult time.
#My mom and Kiran were worried about my weight gain. But I was not, as I had to focus into getting in shape and complete the shooting. I first shot for older Mahavir coz to lose weight I wanted the motivation, otherwise I wouldn’t have.
#I had lot of injuries, on my ankle, back, shoulders and elbows. None of them was so serious which stopped my shooting except for once when I had injured my back. The doctors asked me to take two months bed rest. But I assured Nitesh to give me two weeks rest and I came back on sets. To shoot one sequence, we had to travel to Ludhiana again from Mumbai. I took pain killer injections to shoot the scene. It was actually very very painful.
#I used to feel horrible to see myself in the mirror when I was getting fat. However I enjoyed getting fat coz I ate everything I wanted. But when I had to lose weight, I panicked. But I convinced myself, I used to get depressed.
#I have started smoking right now as I am so stressed to see the final copy of the film.
Indeed Aamir Khan has raised the bar for all the actors. Do you agree BollywoodLifers?
