Bollywood actor Aamir Khan became active on cinema in the 1980s. His first significant role was in the movie Qayamat Se Qayamat Tak. Subsequently he was praised for his role in Raakh. By the 1990s, he’s already established himself as an actor. During this time he starred in the films Dil and Raja Hindustani. For the latter, he was awarded his first Filmfare Award for Best Actor. In the 2000s, he headlined several films. This includes Lagaan, produced by his production company, Fanaa and Rang De Basanti. He even ventured into directing with the movie Taare Zameen Par. For his work here, he won both the Best Director and Best Film awards at the Filmfare. His greatest box office hits were the movies Ghajini, 3 Idiots, Dhoom 3, and PK. His performance in 2016’s Dangal also won him another Filmfare for Best Actor.
The actor remains lean and toned even when he’s already in his 50s. It is also notable that he’s undergone physical transformation lately with this body more ripped than ever for his role in the movie Dangal. In his blog post, the actor believes in the importance of healthy and balanced diet, exercise, and rest. In an interview, the actor reveals that weight training is important when the goal is to build muscle and sculpt the body. He also doesn’t push himself to the extreme and allows his body to get enough rest.
He said in an interview: “The importance of rest is often underestimated. During Ghajini, as a rule, I slept for at least 8 hours every night.” As mentioned, he underwent a transformation for his role in the sports drama Dangal. To prepare for his role here, he said: “Putting on the weight was fun as I could eat and drink whatever I wanted. I had a ball, I have to say but it was uncomfortable. My wrestling training was affected because I was carrying so much weight and I couldn’t move fast. You know, your breathing changes when you put on weight. Your whole body language changes, the way you walk, the way you sit, the way you try to stand up.”
