In an inspiring feat of undeterred commitment and sheer hard-work, Maniesh Paul has undergone a jaw-dropping transformation for his debut web series Rafuchakkar. Playing a con artist with five different looks throughout the show, Maniesh required to look the part perfectly for each avatar, including weight gain and loss.
The recently launched trailer of Rafuchakkar offered glimpses into the varied avatars of Maniesh Paul in the show, wherein, while one look required him to gain weight to resemble a pot-bellied, plump middle aged man, another drastically opposite look portrayed him as a ripped, body builder. In order to Ace each look perfectly, Maniesh followed a rigorous workout regime and diet to gain and lose weight effectively in four months.
In order to gain 10 kgs, Maniesh Paul let go of all restrictions and hogged on food for two months. Post that, it took strenuous two and a half months to not only lose weight but build muscles and a ripped body.
While the world knows and loves Maniesh Paul as the witty, spontaneous and humorous host and actor, he is gearing to blow everyone’s minds with his unseen and amazing avatar in his debut digital series Rafuchakkar, starting to stream on Jio Cinema from 15th June.
