20 kgs of Hardwork for Ranvir.

Actor Ranvir Shorey gained almost 20 kgs for his new movie “Fatso”. Actor was trying hard to lose weight and was even practicing Kalaripayyatu, a martial art form born in Kerala. “Fatso” also features Gul Panag, Purab Kohli, Neil bhoopalam and Gunjan Bakshi in lead Roles.

When asked about the same Ranvir said,

“For Fatso I had to gain 15-20 kilos. Initially it was needed to gain the weight as we couldn’t afford prosthetics and make up around chin, neck and arms. I did wear a fat suit for the body but the face too needed to look proportionate.

Although it was a health risk, I went ahead. In fact, I’ve even got high blood pressure due to the weight I put on suddenly. If it hadn’t been Rajat Kapoor’s film, maybe I wouldn’t have done it. It’s my third film with Rajat and that’s why I have implicit faith in him,”

the 39-year-old said.

The movie has been included in various international film festivals including South Asian Film Festival in New York, Indian Film Festival of Los Angeles and Shanghai International Film Festival.

Fatso will hit theaters today, so all the best Ranvir we hope your hard work pays off.
