A combination of Home-cooked food and basic workout is the secret behind the actor’s transformation. Prior to joining the shooting schedule of Jawaani Jaaneman, Saif Ali Khan underwent an amazing makeover. Apart from doing away with his long mane and losing approximately 11 kilos, he sported a crew cut with a stubble.
What is more interesting in all this is that the Nawab Of Pataudi did it all on his own without the help of any trainer or a nutritionist. There were rumors that he followed a no-sugar and no-carbs diet, but a source close to the actor denies it.
“He is not trying to follow any no-sugar, no-salt and no carb diet. He is eating home-cooked meals, which includes dal, roti, chawal, subzi in proportion and a basic workout routine.”
This source added that Saif is habitual of playing characters that require him to undergo various physical transformations. The first season of his debut web series and his upcoming film, Tanhaji: The Unsung Warrior both needed him to bulk up to do justice to the characters.
Saif also sported a beard for a long time for his roles of a warrior and a naga sadhu for Tanhaji and Laal Kaptaan respectively.
“After wrapping up these projects, Saif had to slip into his character for Jawaani Jaanemann, which is a coming-of-age film, for which he lost weight and changed his hairstyle. The actor underwent this transformation all by himself with healthy ghar ka khana.”
“His cheat meals have only been on days he’d travel or special occasions like his birthday or the wrap-up of Jawaani Jaanemann. Since he prefers spending time at home, eating out has always been limited. He currently does weights and cardio without an instructor.”
Talking about Saif’s new looks and his fans, latter gushed over him with words that he looked years younger. Talking about Saif’s personal life, he and wifey: Kareena celebrated latter’s B’day at Pataudi Palace with a big bash.
