Aamir Khan to Lose 12 kilos for His Next

After a gap of a year, Aamir Khan finally signed suspense drama of Reema Kagti, in which he is playing a cop. Apparently, Aamir has already started following the steps of Salman Khan and growing his moustache. The actor, who is also known as Mr. Perfectionist, will also shed some weight to get into the skin of the character.

Aamir will now loose at least 11-12 kilos for the cop’s role he will enact. A source says,

“The actor has to lose around 250 pounds for Kagti’s film.” The additional weight-loss programme makes you wonder, as Aamir is far from being fat. Says the source, “Yes, Aamir was quite lean during the making of 3 Idiots. But he put on a few kilos very recently. The cop’s role in Kagti’s film requires him to be leaner than that.”

The process of losing weight has already begun. Adds the source,

“Aamir has a dietician who has advised him since Ghajini days. As of now, the actor is eating a small meal every two hours.”

When contacted, Aamir confirmed the news and said,

“I have already lost 4 kilos. I have to lose 6 more. I am watching my diet.”

The final step, Aamir feels he has to take, is rest enough. According to him, no matter how hard you train, if you don’t rest your body adequately, it doesn’t respond well to exercise.
