Arjun Kapoor, one of the newest faces in Indian film industry, has become a heartthrob ever since he made his debut with the romantic drama Ishaqzaade in 2012. The 31-year-old actor has received much acclamation for his performances in Gunday, 2 States, Tevar, and Ki & Ka. He has impressed everyone not just with his acting skills but also his flamboyant looks, six-pack abs, and a chiseled physique.
How Arjun Kapoor Lost Weight
Before entering the world of acting, Arjun Kapoor was plump and overweight. It is hard to believe, but Kapoor weighed 140 kilos when he was 22. Arjun was asthmatic, sluggish, grumpy, and could not run continuously for 10 seconds. At that time, he was content with what he was and did not want to lose weight.
To change things and achieve a remarkable makeover in his immune system and metabolism, Arjun needed a source of inspiration, which was none other than Salman Khan. It was the Sultan actor, who spotted Kapoor’s acting talent and advised him to lose weight. While they trained together, Salman observed Arjun’s diet and kept him from eating high-fat foods.
With sheer hard work, dedication, and perseverance, Arjun Kapoor made a miraculous transformation possible, shedding 53 kilos in two years. With a state-of-the-art fitness routine, the superstar has managed to torch excess calories, sculpting every muscle in the body.
