Shah Rukh Khan does it again. From making ‘six pack abs‘ fashionable after Om Shanti Om, he is now displaying eight pack abs in Happy New Year. However now that he is appearing as one of the six losers in the part of Charlie, it would be interesting to see how the eight pack abs translate into a winning game here.
Speaking of abs, let’s look at 5 other prominent actors who have hit it hard in the gym to make sure that their body beautiful makes a huge impression on the big screen.
When it comes to Aamir Khan, whatever he does, he plays it extreme. So for Ghajini, he truly punished himself with a fitness schedule that could give any regular person goosebumps. Her shaved his head and came up with what is known today as the ‘Ghajini‘ look. Soon after, he took a massive turnaround and lost it all to get into the body of a 20 something college student for 3 Idiots.
For an actress who just wears her character film after film, she got into a girly avatar for Barfi!. While that was more about the body language and mannerisms more than any overtly physical transformation, Priyanka Chopra decided to play it strong a couple of years down the line with Mary Kom. As a boxer, she was required to possess a certain muscular tonality and she has done that with aplomb here.
Three years back, Hrithik Roshan had got into a shape which in his own words was ‘ugly and repulsive‘. Then he decided to take charge of the situation. The first task in hand was to get rid of all the flab surrounding his body. This was followed by an extensive workout routine and a diet plan that made him come back to shape in time before he started work on Krrish 3. It was back to being ‘ooh la la’!
He was pretty much the boy next door when he made an impressive debut with Band Baaja Baaraat, a film where he played a quintessential Delhi boy. However, the change started coming in Ladies v/s Ricky Bahl which required him to play a casanova. Well that wasn’t enough and he started pumping iron big time for Ram Leela and Gunday, two films that showed off his action side.
If there is one actor who has constantly went through a look change ever since he faced the camera for the big screen with Aap Kaa Surroor, it is Himesh Reshammiya. He lost weight big time for his latest film The Xpose and with a new hairstyle and a moustache to add, Himesh stepped into the vintage avtar with ease. The film is also his highest grosser ever.
