You’ve seen them light up your screens, perform death defying stunts whilst showing off a toned, chiseled physique. The actresses on the other hand prance about from one set to another, moving swiftly across their feet flawlessly.
To achieve recognition and accomplish such feats wasn’t an overnight ordeal. These celebrities went through rigorous diets and hectic workout schedules to be at size zero. Here’s a list of artists we compiled who are better off now than they were before, talking strictly in terms of body fat!
1. Arjun Kapoor
Before he swept millions of girls off their feet in Ishaqzaade, Arjun Kapoor weighed almost 140 kilograms and couldn’t fit into an airplane seat! Yes, the Gunday star sought out the help of none other than muscular Salman Khan, traveling the world with him and sticking to Salman’s guidelines on how to train and eat healthy. I guess it’s safe to say Sallu mian did a splendid job with the lad!
2. Zareen Khan
Ever since appearing on Veer, Zarine has been mostly criticized for her ‘large’ and ‘overbearing’ physique on screen. This led to the actress being written off by most of the directors however she bounced back by shedding an impressive 45 kg to go from 100kgs to 55kg (currently).
The pretty, Lollywood actress looked like she could use some exercise and that is exactly what she must have done! Since the days when she hosted a dance competition show, Nur seemed to put on some additional kilos but seems to be much lighter in comparison, now!
4. Sonakshi Sinha
Daughter of the famous Shatrugan, Sonoakshi was always destined for glory and big things. However, things weren’t handed on a silver platter to the pretty damsel who had to go through an entire lifestyle change, ranging from healthy diet to bouts of healthy exercises daily. This she did in order to become presentable for her role beside Salman Khan in Dabangg (which went on to become one of the greatest hits of all time and served as her launching pad.)
5- Bhumi Pednekar
The Dum Laga Ke Haisha actress already weighed 72 kgs, when she got an offer for this movie. And for this, she had to put even more weight!. However, soon after the film, the actress managed to drop all the extra fat and looks super-fit now!
6- Parineeti Chopra
She is the current heartthrob of almost every man. Parineeti herself admitted in media that before joining films, she was not just chubby, but very fat. Check out here.
7. Adnan Sami
The Pakistani born singer who ventured out to Bollywood and achieved immense success there, was reduced to traveling on a wheelchair at one point in time. The reason; his excess body fat! The Lift Karade singer shocked the world when he shed an astounding 100 kilos in 2007.
