Bollywood superstar Aamir Khan goes to any length to fit the character for his films and his upcoming film Dangal is no exception. According to India Today, the actor was required to gain 95kgs for his role as a wrestler, which has his mother and wife extremely concerned.
His constant weight fluctuation worries his family because it could cause some serious health issues for the actor.
“I am 95 kg right now and that’s enough for the character,” said Aamir in an interview with India Today.
The actor delved further into his health problems by explaining his current condition. ”My breathing has changed… when I tie my laces, my stomach comes in between. After 20 seconds, I have to (take a long) breath,” he added.
Aamir talked about the concern shown by his mother and wife about his excessive weight gain. “My mom and my wife are very worried about me, they feel I am playing with my health. Even I feel the same,” he said.
However, it will not be long till we see the Ghajini actor spring back into shape after completing the biopic.
He already has plans to shed off the weight gain. “By December (2015), we will finish the shooting, and in the next five months I will lose weight. When the film will come to an end, I will be back to the PKlook,” said the Mr. Perfectionist.
His new movie Dangal features the life story of wrestler Mahavir Singh and the relationship he shares with his talented daughters. Directed by Nitesh Tiwari the film is set to release date in September 2015.
