Famous Body Makeover for Bollywood Movies
When noted film maker Imtiaz Ali signed Ranbir Kapoor for ‘ROCKSTAR’, he wanted a ‘lanky’ look for Ranbir. One look at Ranbir’s muscular well-toned body and he knew there was a task at hand. Ranbir needed to lose weight for achieving the desired look and he had to do it in one month to match the filming schedule. Pradeep Bhatia stepped in and took this challenge head-on. Through a carefully supervised weight-loss program, which included intense diet control coupled with rigorous functional training, Pradeep Bhatia brought Ranbir’s weight down from 75 to 65kgs on one month and transformed him into Rockstar Janardhan “Jordan” Jakhar.
Transforming the regular Punjabi male body of Diljeet Dosanjh into that of a super-fit muscular and athletic hockey player was probably one of the biggest challenges for Pradeep Bhatia. After a rigorous 25 days schedule which involved high-reps exercises, cardio interval and a strong diet plan, Diljeet amazed the film’s director Shaad Ali with the perfect body for playing the legendary hockey player Sandeep Singh in ‘SOORMA’.
Preparing Vineet Singh for playing the role of a boxer in ‘MUKKABAAZ’ presented a unique challenge as Vineet had a very thin body and did not look like a boxer from any angle. To transform his body into a muscle powerhouse, Pradeep Bhatia devised a combination of intense weight gain training, high-reps exercises, cardio interval and a diet largely focused on protein and carbohydrates. Within a short span of 5 months, Vineet achieved a super-fit muscular and well-toned body, which convinced the film’s director Anurag Kashyap that Vineet was the boxer he was looking for.
