Ranbir Kapoor’s fit body has been the topic of discussion on social media with fans drooling over his washboard abs and chiselled pectorals. Yash Raj Films, the production house behind Ranbir’s upcoming project, Shamshera, has definitely been capitalizing on the actor’s good looks and chiselled physique with their shoots. In the shoots, Ranbir and Vaani Kapoor (his co-star in Shamshera) ooze chemistry with a couple of pictures showing Ranbir’s toned midriff and bulging biceps.
Director Karan Malhotra reveals that the Kapoor scion has worked insanely hard on his role and the body he had to attain for it. “Ranbir has worked very hard to own up to the roles of Shamshera and Balli. The idea behind him building a particular physique for the film came from the fact that I wanted the audiences to feel his internal strength and resolve every time they saw him on screen. So, keeping that core idea in mind, I manoeuvred Ranbir towards building up a body which added more strength to his character in the film,” he says.
Get a glimpse of Ranbir Kapoor’s fit body in the Fitoor song from Shamshera:
He adds: “The intention was never for his physique to be a distraction but an asset to his characters. And I can say this very confidently that Ranbir worked hard on making his mental and physical presence felt in both the characters which is why he looks stunning in every frame of Shamshera and owns it with great strength.”
The secret to Ranbir Kapoor’s hot body in Shamshera:
Ranbir’s trainer Kunal Gir reveals the secret behind Ranbir’s fab body in Shamshera. He says, “The target was to make RK look athletic, not too bulky as his character was like Robin Hood. We had to keep the rustic, raw appeal that came along with that character. Hence, he is athletic and strong looking. Ranbir had five meals a day. He was on a high protein and low carb diet and went through rigorous training five days a week! He had a cheat meal only once a week.”
He adds, “We trained 5 days a week, each session was an hour-long followed by a quick 5-minute high-intensity cardio session we called ‘truck’. It’s where the treadmill was turned off and RK was to hold the handles of the machine and drive the belt with his legs. The shooting was mostly outdoors and RK had to deal with a lot of heat and dust. So, we worked on some breathing exercises that helped him stay calm and endure long and strenuous shooting conditions.”
