Actor Varun Dhawan has always worked very hard to get into the skin of the character he plays on screen. After his sweet next door boy movies like ‘Student of The Year’, ‘Dilwale’ and serious picture ‘Badlapur’, the actor is yet again hitting the gym to get a chiseled body.
Varun has to shoot for an action sequence bare bodied for which he is undergoing rigorous training. The film which also stars John Abraham and Jacqueline Fernandez is being directed by his brother Rohit Dhawan.
The unit will begin shooting for the next 35-days sequence in Abu Dhabi. (Read: Dishoom first look: Varun Dhawan, John Abraham are the new action boys)
Varun’s trainer Prashant Sawant said, “He’s a hardworking boy and began working on his physique immediately after wrapping up Dilwale. We’ve been training for an hour-and-a-half everyday to achieve his wishful target.”
Varun’s current routine involves more cardio and stretching, which will make him more muscular yet keep him flexible. He is also following a high protein-low carbs diet of chicken, fish and salads. (Also read: Varun Dhawan hung upside down for seven hours for ‘Dishoom’)
“He’s always been in great shape. Often, he visits the gym twice a day, sometimes, even after his dance rehearsals. He even exercises between award shows and while traveling. I know he will achieve the desired physique by next week, just before he flies off,” added Prashant.
