This Is How Long It Took Shah Rukh Khan To Gain His Physique For ‘Pathaan’
New Delhi: Shah Rukh Khan’s ‘Pathaan’ look has been the talk of the town ever since the photos came out on social media. Shah Rukh’s well-toned look, coupled with his long absence from the silver screen, has only heightened the excitement around the release of ‘Pathaan.’
However, getting in the skin of his character wasn’t an easy job for King Khan. The actor’s trainer Prashant Subhash Sawant, in a recent interaction with the Indian Express, detailed all the hardships that the Badshah of Bollywoodunderwent to completely transform himself for the role.
The celebrity trainer revealed that in the last four years, SRK completely immersed himself in attaining the toned physique that the script demanded. Reportedly, he had been consistent with weight-lifting and circuit training which has made him look better and bigger.
The trainer said, “Since his look in Pathaan is very different, Shah Rukh started doing a lot of lifting heavy. Previously, we used to do a lot of circuit training and cardio workouts, but now we have incorporated more strength training — which helped him look better and bigger. It took us two years to build the toned physique you see on screen. His frame and look have completely changed.”
