This is just unbelievable! Randeep Hooda has lost 18 kg in just
28 days for his upcoming film Sarbjit in which he is
starring alongside Aishwarya Rai Bachchan.
Randeep posted images from his movie Do Lafzon Ki
Kahani where he was 94 kgs, but now he weighs just 66 kgs for
his role of farmer in Sarbjit.
Director Omung Kumar has revealed, "When I had approached
Randeep for this role, I was very clear in my mind that I need
someone who is open about going through a rigorous weight loss, as
the role demanded lot of different looks."
Sarbjit is a biopic on Sarabjit Singh, an Indian farmer
who was convicted for terrorism and spying in Pakistan and was
sentenced to death. He was attacked by inmates at a prison in
Lahore in April 2013 and died a few days later.
Omung spoke about the actor's dedication, "Randeep took that as
a challenge and agreed upon giving 100 percent dedication not to
prove that he can do it as an actor but to do justice to the
character and the film."

"The role needed Randeep to look very fragile with his bones
being visible. He shed around 18 kgs of weight in 28 days, went
through a strict diet and in fact in the last few days he was
living completely on water," added Kumar, who is mighty impressed
Kumar also shared a photograph of the transformed "Kick" star on
