Ahan has opened up about his experience of maintaining his weight for the film during and post pandemic.
In a recent interview with Bollywood Hungama, talking about his character, Ahan said, “It was quite difficult because Milan sir [Milan Luthria] did want me to put a certain amount of weight on. Actually, I put on 11 kilos for the film in terms of muscle. So that took me a long time because it’s very hard for me to put on weight; so I was eating almost 9 to 10 meals a day.”
“I wouldn’t even finish my lunch and my next meal would be ready. I would just have to keep stuffing my face and keep working out. What was difficult was when we went through the pandemic, we had 10 months gap between our shoots and I actually lost 14 kilos during the pandemic and then I had only two months to get ready for the film.” He further said.
He also mentioned how there was not any gym available in Mussourie and they had to arrange the equipment. “In Mussourie, we didn’t really have a gym so we had to drive up equipment from Delhi so I could train. We kind of set it up in my room itself,” he said.
Moreover, Tara Sutaria and Ahan Shetty also talked about their film, music and intense romantic scenes. Ahaan says that the romantic aspect of this film is very intense. Tara further talked about her performance and says that Ahaan and she have emulated a lot from Payal and Kartikeya of RX 100.
