Shahid Kapoor has been working on his already perfect physique for Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Padmavati. And the photo shared by the actor on his Instagram handle earlier this morning is proof of his hard work.
The actor will be playing Maharawal Ratan Singh in the film that also stars Deepika Padukone & Ranveer Singh. Bhansali is certainly a perfectionist and looking at the way Shahid has been working to get his body just right for the film, Bhansali’s perfectionist attitude, it seems, has rubbed off on Kapoor as well. Shahid is one of the few actors who is known for his craft as well as his chiseled abs, and this combination is quite a rarity. Shahid’s last release, Rangoon, might not have set the cash registers ringing at the box-office but his performance was appreciated.
Shahid’s Instagram account can easily be described as #FitnessGoals and scrolling through these pictures makes one wonder how the actor balances a healthy lifestyle along with being a hands-on father. He frequently shares pictures of his daughter Misha and wife Mira and those adorable pictures make him look like the perfect family man.
Shahid followed a strict routine to get the perfect look for the film which included working out for two hours every day. The actor was on a diet for 40 days during which he was supposed to consume 50 gms of brown rice and steamed vegetables on a daily basis. He also went off sugar and salt for 15 days so he could look perfect while his close-ups were being filmed. The actor’s trainer, Samir Jaura, definitely deserves some credit for his perfect physique.
Even when the actor is on a holiday, he maintains his fitness routine.
The Udta Punjab actor is extremely strict about his regime and that certainly shows in these pictures.
His look for Padmavati was shared on social media a few days ago.
And the fans are waiting with bated breath for the release of this epic saga.
Padmavati releases on December 1 and Sasha fans are definitely queuing up to watch the saga unfold.
