While Aamir Khan’s transformation for Dangal is breaking news, not-so-popular actors like Randeep Hooda don’t quite get the media coverage that they deserve.
The actor, who will be playing the role of Sarabjit Singh, has lost more than 18 kgs of weight in less than a month.
The Omung Kumar directed film is based on the life of Indian national Sarabjit Singh, who is accused as a spy by Pakistan and sentenced to death by the court.
In April 2013, when Salman Khan’s initiative to get Sarabjit released from jail was gaining momentum, he was stabbed by Pakistani jail inmates in the prison. 6 days later, he succumbed to his injuries and passed away at the age of 49.
He spent nearly half of his life in Pakistani prison between 1990 to 2013.
The film also stars Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, who plays the role of Sarabjit’s sister and Richa Chadha, who is set to play the role of his wife.
Sarabjit releases in theatres on May 20.
