Fit to Fat to Fit: Aamir Khan’s incredible transformation

Bollywood superstar Aamir Khan is one actor who willingly puts his health and life at risk for his films. Aamir went through an extreme transformation for ‘Dangal’.

“This one was one of the most dramatic body transformations so far. The film has two phases. For one part, I had to put on weight. So, I weighed 96 kgs with 38 per cent body fat and that I had to reduce to 9 per cent body fat within five months. That was a huge task”

“I would like to mention that putting on weight and losing it so fast is very unhealthy. I did it for my film under the supervision of experts, but it is very unhealthy for any regular person.”

When asked why he didn’t opt for a ‘bodysuit’ instead of putting his health at risk, the actor said “When you put on weight, it affects your breathing and body language. That naturally reflects on your performance. You cannot get that from a bodysuit.”

Talking about his extreme transformation and the diet that he followed, Aamir said “I ate everything that I was not supposed to eat otherwise. I had samosa, vada pav, chocolate, cakes, brownies… I indulged in everything. Then when I had to lose the weight, I had a very different diet of 25 grams of upma and papaya. After gym, a glass of protein shake”

The makers of the film have also released a video highlighting his transformation. Check it out:

  • But the picture which is on your article wasn’t seen in Trailer…. that mean he photoshoped in the film too… “Remember the young man coming into the Ring” that scene is photoshoped (by using VFX) from this pic which is on ur article.

  • There is no match of him when it comes to dedication and efforts he pours into his movies.
    One of the most versatile and finest actor of all time.
    Eagerly waiting for his next masterpiece called ‘Dangal’ which will set the new standards for movies based on ‘wrestling’ unlike the trash which we witnessed earlier this year.

  • “Kiran wanted to move out of India, she fears for her child” – Aamir Khan
    This was stated on 23th November, 2015, exactly a year back. Mr. Amir how your beloved second wife feels about an alien country called “India”? Is she comfortable or demonetisation has broken her heart and wealth more?

  • He always gives his best to fit and walk in the shoes of new role and a new character. Perhaps that’s the reason why he has managed to win millions of hearts with his acting skills.

  • What’s great in this. If someone can take 2 yrs to complete a film and also his next film is not coming in a near future. Then anyone can do this body transformation

    Who thinks till that extent?
    For many, films are just a source of churning huge money by acting into the craps produced/directed by their brothers/relatives and then we have this man, who has transformed the entire mechanism of conventional movie making process.
    No body goes into this depth to make his body suitable according to the demand of the role. But this guy does and that is what differentiates him from others.
    Respect!!!
