That Aamir Khan gets into the skin of every character he plays, is well known. But doing it in Reema Kagti’s film will be a tough task for the actor.
Aamir will sport a crew cut (sans any Ghajini demarcations this time) and will have to lose at least 11-12 kilos for the cop’s role he will enact.
A source close to Aamir says, “The actor has to lose around 250 pounds for Kagti’s film.” The additional weight-loss programme makes you wonder, as Aamir is far from being fat. Says the source, “Yes, Aamir was quite lean during the making of 3 Idiots. But he put on a few kilos very recently. The cop’s role in Kagti’s film requires him to be leaner than that.”
The process of losing weight has already begun. Adds the source, “Aamir has a dietician who has advised him since Ghajini days. As of now, the actor is eating a small meal every two hours.”
When contacted, Aamir confirmed the news and said, “I have already lost 4 kilos. I have to lose 6 more. I am watching my diet.”
The final step, Aamir feels he has to take, is rest enough. According to him, no matter how hard you train, if you don’t rest your body adequately, it doesn’t respond well to exercise.
But considering Aamir’s six-pack look in Ghajini was a rage once, size zero may well become the mantra for men soon.
