Aamir’s Preparation for His Role
However, some changes are bound to happen when you put on some extra weight. The '3 Idiots' star mentions feeling the changes in his body after gaining weight. Breathing problems is one of the biggest issues that take place when you put on such a weight and that is something Amir himself has experienced firsthand.
One of the things that Amir Khan had to do for his role in this film is to gain a ton of weight. And for that, he had to eat a lot. The 51 year old himself admitted to enjoying this a great deal. After all, he had the freedom to eat pretty much anything he wished to. In his own words, it was a ball the whole time.
The Procedure of Body Transformation
After the weight gaining process comes the hard work i.e. the training regime. This is the most difficult section of it all because after Amir gained weight, he stood at 97kilos with 38% body fat. Becoming lean from that position is a hard enough task for even the best of athletes, let alone an actor. It is a hard process but he managed to pull through.
Health Issues in Body Transformation
Care must be taken to make sure that the extra weight is gained in a surgical fashion. Failure to do so will result in health issues. After all, cholesterol levels tend to reach massive heights after such eating routines. But despite all challenges, Amir was still able to overcome all problems and make his way into proper shape for the film.
