As the espionage world is taking over Bollywood, all eyes are on Fighter, one of the most awaited movies. Hrithik Roshan and Deepika Padukone starrer, Fighter, also stars Akshay Oberoi, who will be playing the role of an air force pilot. Along with mental preparation to get into the persona, Akshay is also working out vigorously to have that muscular figure suitable for the part. Instead of going the normal manner of training with a trainer, Akshay chose to do it by himself. And within three months, the actor has gone through a surprising transformation.
Referring to this, Akshay said, “I have been working out extensively before and during the filming of the movie. The goal was to build up muscles with a hard workout which I trained myself for. The role needed me to have a bigger body frame. I’m playing the role of an air force officer and his physical traits have to fit the character so I took it upon myself to endure this transformation as it was a demand. I went through rigorous workouts for months ahead. I conducted strength training with intervals of cardio and acquired 10kg of muscle.”
The film is directed by Siddharth Anand who just delivered Bollywood one of the biggest blockbusters ever, Pathaan with Shah Rukh Khan, Deepika Padukone, and John Abraham.
Apart from this, Akshay will soon be starting to work on a fresh new season of Broken News 2, Laal Rang 2, and is anticipating the release of his film Varchasva.
