For Kartik Aaryan, Freddy is a special film. The actor even gained 14 kg to do justice to his role in Shashanka Ghosh’s directorial venture. Also starring Alaya F, Freddy is produced by Ekta Kapoor. The film is a romantic thriller which promises unpredictable twists.
Many actors go through body transformation for the characters they have to play. Akshay Kumar had gained 5 kg for Aanand L Rai’s Raksha Bandhan. Kartik Aaryan also put on weight for his upcoming film, Freddy.
Fitness trainer Samir Jaura, who helped Kartik achieve the physique required for his role in Freddy, talked about the actor’s 14 kg weight gain. He said, “Transformations aren’t just limited to shedding or getting ripped, sometimes it also involves putting on kilos and fat but doing it in a very supervised and safe manner. Kartik was able to gain 14 kilos to achieve this look with disciplined, tailor-made workouts and the right diet.”
He further added, “His dedication is incredible because he is genetically lean so to gain the weight in that particular time frame for his role is truly commendable. In fact he has already started losing weight from his Freddy look to get ready for his next film.”
Kartik Aaryan and Alaya F recently wrapped up Freddy shoot. The actor shared some pictures from the film’s sets from the last day of shoot on Twitter and wrote, “Its a Wrap!! A character that will always stay like a shadow with me #Freddy will see you at the theatres (sic).”
Besides Freddy, Kartik Aaryan will be seen in Ram Madhvani’s action thriller Dhamaka. He also has Anees Bazmee’s Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 and Hansal Mehta’s Captain India in the pipeline.
