Whenever Arjun Kapoor is snapped out and about in the city, one can visibly tell that this Ki & Ka actor has lost oodles of kilos and to say that this is the fittest that Arjun has ever looked is to state the obvious. From going bald to growing a moustache to flexing his muscles, Arjun Kapoor is undergoing major body transformation for his upcoming period drama titled Panipat. And in a recent interview, Arjun Kapoor was quizzed about his body transformation and the actor had said that since the audiences are paying money to watch him on the silver screen, they expect him to look a certain way. “I'm capable of looking better. I have to be honest with myself and the audience. They are paying 500 rupees to watch me. They expect me to look the way I looked when I started out.”

Although Ashutosh Gowarikar required him to look a certain way in Panipat, Arjun also revealed that for the longest time, he has been battling health issues due to his weight but now that the actor is back to his fit self, we are sure all of Arjun fans are overjoyed to see their favorite actor all fit and flaunting the chiseled body. Arjun said, “I've had health issues, I don't talk about. I come from a slightly obese childhood. Slight is an understatement. That comes with its own ailments. I battle with them constantly. Today, I'm back to feeling my best.”

Since Panipat is a war drama, and Arjun is playing the role of a warrior, Ashutosh is happy with the way Arjun has worked on his body and Arjun too believes that he now looks like a warrior. “I've lost all the excess weight. I'm shooting a film where I'm bald and my director is happy with the way I'm looking. I believe I look like a warrior. There's a certain physicality that the role needed. I was able to achieve that.” While Arjun had jetted off to New York to ring in his birthday with ladylove Malaika Arora, during his vacay too, Arjun was seen working out since he posted videos on social media and we must say, that is some dedication. Panipat, which also stars Kriti Sanon and Sanjay Dutt, is set to hit the screens on December 6, 2019.



It’s been a tough journey for me ever since I was a kid when it comes to my battle with obesity. Everyone has their own struggles I have had and continue to have mine. But the whole point of life is that we fall, we get back up and try again... efforts will pay off eventually if not today then in a week month or even a year... I started training with @shivohamofficial this January and slow and steady we have managed to At least lay a foundation during our prep for Panipat. I vowed never to give up in the 3 years it took me to lose 50kgs when I was 20 years old & I sure as hell won’t be giving up and letting go now... keeping the belief is key, u gotta keep at it and one day you will reap the benefits... we all gotta keep the faith and keep at it cause what we do today will echo in time and reflect within us eventually...
