Many actors have undergone tremendous changes for the sake of their films. The newest member to join this league is actor Ali Fazal. Ali, who plays the lead in Tigmanshu Dhulia’s Milan Talkies has lost a lot of weight to suit the role.
The actor seems to have lost over 10 kilos of muscle and 2 kilos of fat as he plays a boy from a small town near Lucknow in the film. Ali had put on over 14 kilos before he began shooting for his web series, Mirzapur, but was requested to drop all the weight by director Dhulia before Milan Talkies was to hit the floor in March.
Ali was put on a keto diet which is a no carb and sugar diet. His trainer also ensured he ran over 5 kms a day to drop muscle and become lean. On asking him about it, Ali said
“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. But it takes a lot of focus and will to do it, especially the diet part. My workout really helped because the only thing I had to do was run, nothing else.”
Ali Fazal will be seen opposite Shraddha Srinath in Milan Talkies. He will also be seen in the much talked about Web Series, Mirzapur which stars Pankaj Tripathi and Shweta Tripathi.
