If you’ve been hitting the gym, only then you can know that those muscles take effort, vigilance, dedication, high-intensity training, strict diets, supplements and a lot more.
Take a hectic, packed schedule and add in a job where apart from working for over 12 hours a day under harsh lights and heavy makeup, you’ve got to sneak a workout into your super busy schedule. That’s called ‘Hunger for Fitness’! And then, going that extra mile — literally — to do justice to the roles. Now that’s dedication for a role! But with such a hectic schedule, where do our stars find the time to firm up?
Well, that’s where Hassaan Mahmood comes in.
Getting ready for a film is no longer about just trimming a few pounds here and there. So when Pakistan’s hottest stars need big physical changes in a short amount of time, it is Hassaan Mahmood to the rescue.
Combating the stress and fatigue of such a hectic schedule, Pakistani stars are making sure to carve out time for regular exercise. And we’re here to pay tribute to these actors who worked their abs for their art — because it takes more effort to curl 80 pounds than it does to gain it.
See which actors had to strap on their sneakers and hit the gym to get buff for movie roles.
Already physically fit needed to step up his game. The singer-turned-actor has buffed up for his role in upcoming film Yalghaar. The journey he set out finally is to unravel. His transformation is nothing short of phenomenal and is something that has “never been done before in Pakistani films”!
