We've heard a lot about actors transforming to maintain ~*authenticity*~ for a movie role, but Randeep Hooda's latest transformation is absolutely CRAZY!
The actor has lost a whopping 18 kgs in mere 28 days (and is now almost unrecognizable) for his role as Sarabjit Singh in an upcoming biopic.
The director recently posted a picture with Randeep as Sarabjit on Twitter:
Randeep Hooda specially went on a starvation diet for the role and drastically cut down on his meals. He was closely supervised by his sister and a doctor.
"He cut down on his meals, filling up on coffee and water, even when we were shooting in Palghar and gorging on some great food. In his years in jail, Sarabjit was kept in a 4 x 4 room and had rat bites all over him. The first time I met Randeep, I told him that I wanted to see his bones. He took up the challenge and shocked even me," the director Omung admitted in an interview.
The film also stars Aishwarya Rai, Richa Chadda and Darshan Kumaar in pivotal roles.
