Bollywood is a visual medium, and so to look good is imperative. Our Bollywood celebrities work hard to look their best on the big screen. A combination of a super-tough workout regime and a disciplined diet is what gives them those envious looks. Some celebrities were not always blessed with gorgeous curves and cuts. They had to work hard to look screen ready.
Here are some celebrities who lost weight and the diets they followed to achieve that curvaceous and fit body.
The Dabangg Sonakshi Sinha was a chubby girl before she stole our hearts as Rajjo. She used to be 90 kgs before she made her debut opposite Salman Khan. For her, losing 30 kgs wasn’t easy but she did it by working out regularly and eating healthy. For Sonakshi, not eating was a big challenge thus, dieting wasn’t an option. Therefore, her trainer asked her to eat healthy food. She left all the junk and artificial sweets and replaced them with food rich in protein. This high protein diet supported her rigorous workouts as well.
Sonam Kapoor is a true diva. With all the Louis Vuitton, Channel and Gucci, she can give any Hollywood A-lister tough competition. Before she was dazzled by the flowy lehengas in Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Saawariya, she was a plump kid with lots of piercings. However, with dedication and willpower, she lost 30 kgs.
She took a break and learned Kalaripayattu which is a martial arts form from Kerala. She replaced all her white food items with their brown substitutes. Other than this, she signed up for a detox programme in Austria where a special diet chart was prepared just for her. This was a rather tough one that was to be followed diligently. This helped her tremendously.
Like his cousin Sonam Kapoor, Arjun was also overweight. He weighed a whopping 140 kgs before he signed up for Ishaqzaade. He does CrossFit for 20 minutes every day and consumes lots of proteins for those killer abs.
The critics were very harsh toward Salman Khan’s new findings. When Zareen made her debut with the movie Veer, she was a little on the heavy side. Despite her talent, she was written off by the critics due to her ‘larger than frame’ presence. Zareen followed a high protein diet which includes a lot of fruits and vegetables. Other than this, she is obsessed with drinking a lot of water for a good detox. She prefers ghee over olive oil as it is good for the skin, hair, and bones.
Bhumi Pednakar broke the stereotypes and entered Bollywood with a movie like Dum Laga Ke Haisha where she had to be overweight. She made us her fan with her commendable performance. For this role, she had to gain a lot of weight which she successfully lost later on.
Tanmay Bhatt has made us laugh harder than we could handle. With his stints with AIB, he never fails to amaze us. Tanmay Bhatt has always been on the obese side and there is no hiding it. He lost 109 kgs by following the Keto diet.
