Countdown Begins for John Abrahamhas to Tone his Body for Dostana 2

John Abraham, who is very particular about his body-shape, has been shaping his body differently for his two forthcoming flicks; Vipul Shah’s Hindi remake of South superhit Khaka Khaka and Dostana 2.

Amazingly, in both the flicks, he has to look different; as John has required to beefy in Vipul

Shah’s film, he needs to flaunt a perfectly chiselled body in the other. As per source

John is playing a tough narcotics officer in the Nishikant Kamath-directed remake of Khaka Khaka , and he needs to bulk up his body for that. But after shooting a month-long schedule, he starts filming for Dostana 2 around July 20, so he has hardly ten days to get into his Dostana look. John’s toned body had become a talking point in the first edition of Dostana and everyone expects an encore in Dostana 2. John is currently working out everyday from 9 in the morning to noon with a trainer in Bandra to achieve a beefier body. He is also following a special diet and makes it a point to sleep early so that his body gets enough rest. He has already put on around eight kilos and will have a really tough time shedding all that weight in the ten days he’ll get before the shoot of Dostana 2 starts. He has a second trainer to help him lose weight, who is already part of John’s training to ensure the actor doesn’t go overboard while bulking up for Khakha Khakha. It’s a dangerous tightrope walk for John.”

Stating about changes to be done in body, John,

“I need one kind of look for the tough cop I am playing in the Khaka Khaka remake and a very

chilled out beach body in Dostana 2. I am working towards peaking in the first look around June 20, after which I shall be working to get into the second look. It’s tough and perhaps not very healthy to make such a quick transition, but I am shooting back-to-back and I have no option.”
