Calling actor Pulkit Samrat a fitness freak would be an understatement after the major physical transformation he has achieved for his latest film, Bejoy Nambiar‘s ‘Taish‘.  The actor’s outstanding physique in the film reflects the attributes of patience and dedication that went into achieving it.

Pulkit had only 30 days to prepare for his chiselled and toned look. To achieve the look visualised by the filmmaker and the writers, the actor’s personal trainer, Sameer Ansari gave him an elaborate workout and meal plan to follow.

The actor’s workout involved lower intensity workouts with a much higher volume. The workout included numerous compound exercises and compound lifts, supersets, and cardio between sets. Pulkit also had morning workout sessions where he had to do cardiovascular exercises wearing a high altitude mask, which multiples the difficulty manifold. In the last week before the shoot, Pulkit’s trainer also incorporated Electrical Muscle Stimulation (EMS) technology — a protocol that elicits a muscle contraction using electrical impulses that directly stimulate your motor neurons, resulting in strengthened, toned and firm muscles.

The actor plays two very different avatars in the film. One in which he is shredded to the point that each vein and sinew on his muscles is visible. In the latter part of Taish, we see a Pulkit that is more bloated and has let go of himself after going through a series of unfortunate events, as can be seen in his smaller muscles, and the weight around his belly and face. To achieve the bloated, tired look required a drastic change to both Pulkit’s workout regimen, as well as his diet. He had to progressively overload his muscles and push them to their limits by lifting much heavier weights to open up his muscles. This, in addition to increased simple carbs and fruit sugars along with salted food, gave him a bloated look in just 3 days!

A transformation of this proportion sounds nearly impossible, but with the help of his trainer Sameer, a strict workout regimen and stringent diet, the disciplined and determined Pulkit pulled off this fantastic feat and made it look effortless.

Apart from his commendable transformation, the actor’s impeccable performance was also the highlight of the film. I sure can’t wait to see more of Pulkit on the silver screen!
