From Aamir Khan to Hrithik Roshan, these are 5 Bollywood actors who went from normal to insane for their movie roles.
To be in news or to be in the movie business, an actor needs to be in good shape but sometimes for a specific role they need to either gain weight or loss it. In the last decade, we have seen fair amount of body transformation from some popular movie actors. Everyone showed us, what true dedication means. Here are 5 actors who did exceptional body transformation.
*The list is in no particular order
1. RANDEEP HOODA
I don’t know, how many of you are really familiar with Randeep before Extraction but the man is an amazing Actor from the start. In 2016, Randeep played the role of Sarbjit Singh in his biopic ‘Sarbjit‘. The character was put into jail for years and was tortured like an animal. He was not given food and water for days. So to look like a true prisoner, Randeep put his heart and soul into his transformation.
He went onto loose 18 Kgs in 28 days. He was almost unrecognisable after the transformation. The weight loss was so dangerous that the crew and the doctors were concerned for Randeep. It was definitely an unhealthy weight loss that no one should try. But all the work was worth it, when you see the man on screen portraying the role with great versatility.
2. Aamir Khan
Aamir has surprised his fans with his pure perfection on screen many times. Not just once but twice, Aamir made the impossible task look easy. His first transformation for Ghajni was impressive but the transformation for Dangal was something else.
Aamir put up a lot of weight in the process of getting the perfect look for Mahavir Singh Phogat. He refused to use prosthetics as it doesn’t gave him proper satisfaction. He weighs 96 Kg after the weight gain and was ready to play the role. Soon after completing his part in that look, he then had to loose a lot of unwanted fat. In just five months, he went from Fat To Fit and comes down to a weight of 68 Kgs.
3. Rajkummar Rao
One more such actor who will go to any heights to do justice to his roles is Rajkummar Rao. To play his character in 2016 movie ‘Trapped‘ Rajkummar had to go through a difficult lifestyle. His transformation is something different than others, here’s why.

His previous film Behan Hogi Teri demanded a good looking guy, so he trained himself and gets a beautiful six pack abs. Then for his movie Trapped, he has to look like a man stuck in an empty apartment for 4 days without proper food and water. He also killed it with his dedication. And after that he needs to gain 11 Kgs to portray the role of Subhash Chandra Bose in Bose: Dead/Alive. It was so difficult to pull out everything in one year but the man did it.
4. Ranveer Singh
One of the most energetic performer on the screen of current time is undoubtedly Ranveer Singh. This man is a complete package of entertainment. In his 2018 film Padmavat, he played the role of a cruel king, Khilji. For the character he needs to gain a lot of muscles so he did it. But soon after that, he has another film lined up for him that was Gully Boy. For this one, he needs a lean body so again Ranveer went from muscular to normal.
5. Hrithik Roshan
The most current body transformation that don’t know inspired how many people around the globe was Hrithik Roshan’s transformation from Super 30 to War. This guy has proven time to time that he has the most beautiful looking body in the world. But after you see Super 30, you won’t say so. Hrithik gained a lot of fats during the film but has a challenge waiting for him after it. His next movie, War which is an action film demands him to look like the Greek God once again.
Just like everybody, when you gain a good amount of weight it becomes difficult to loose it. Same has happened with Hrithik. His body was going through so much pain during the training process. But back in his mind he knew that he is an inspiration for many so he can’t stop there. With weeks of intense training, he finally gets to where he wanted himself to be.
Bollywood has seen so many insane body transformation in the past that not mentioning not a single one of them is hard. But to make a list you need to shortlist some of them. Tell us about more such body transformation stories you know. Share the knowledge.
