Regarded as one of the most versatile actors of today, Arjun Kapoor didn't have it very easy! In his teens he weighed 140 Kgs, couldn't Run For More Than 10 Secs, had Asthma At 22: Here's How He Changed It all!
Before becoming an actor, Arjun even assisted filmmaker Nikhil Advani on films like Kal Ho Naa Ho and Salaam-e-Ishq. Well, it was during that time, when he found it very difficult to move around or work long hours, he realised that he was not satisfied with just being behind the scenes.
Arjun Kapoor wanted to become an actor and those around him, also saw a spark of talent and curiousity in him. But, what was standing between him and his dream? It was of course those 50 extra kgs. And, all he needed was a source of inspiration to change things for good.
Thus began his journey of losing weight. He turned to Salman Khan for advice. “Salman bhai never promised the world to me. All he told me was that I could be an actor if I shed weight.” “I travelled with Salman Khan. We worked out together, and he kept a strict vigil on what I was eating. That man knows no pain. He psyched me into becoming a machine that didn't do anything but lose weight. His dedication, discipline in life rubbed on me, and whatever I am today, I am like this only because of him.”
