Mani Ratnam's Guru was a career defining film for Abhishek Bachchan. Though his first hit was Dhoom, it was Guru which brought him universal accolades as an accomplished actor and was also his first solo hit. It was for his character in Guru that Abhishek had to put on a lot of weight and then he had to keep some of it for Ram Gopal Varma's Sarkar Raj, where he had to look slightly heavier set. But that was the past and now Abhishek is looking trim and fit. People seeing Abhishek on the sets of Mani Ratnam's Raavan were pleasantly surprised to him back in shipshape.
Abhishek says jokingly that while everyone was working on a six–pack ab, he was working on one pack! On a serious note, he adds that he has worked hard to get back in shape as it was really very difficult to shed 14 kgs., which he had acquired during the shooting of Guru and had to stick to till Sarkar Raj. And is very happy to be back to his original weight from Bunty Aur Babli days.
Well, that is certainly good news for the fans of Abhishek Bachchan, and for that they have to thank John Abraham and his trainer who were instrumental in inspiring Abhishek to follow the fitness program devised to get the Dostana hot bod for John. Here's a cheer to their friendship!
