The Delhi Belly actor who has always flaunted a thin and natural look has been asked by his director Bhardwaj to bulk up for Matru Ke Bijli Ka Mandola. Vishal Bhardwaj is known to be a demanding director who wants his leads to look the part be it Langda Tyagi (Saif Ali Khan) in Omkara or Charlie Sharma (Shahid Kapoor) in Kaminey.
This time he has asked Imran Khan to bulk up to play a rustic Haryanvi lad from the North. The young actor claims he is going to do it in a healthy manner and is steering clear of all supplements. He is gorging on all kinds of food items though and is working with his trainer to reach the target. The Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Na actor is facing some hurdles because of his metabolism which keeps him naturally thin. He is also steering clear of steroids and other artificial muscle-builders which can help increase muscle mass short term but has some serious psychiatric and physical side-effects. All we can say he doesn’t need to look too far for inspiration, considering it was his maternal uncle Aamir Khan, who took the ripped look to the next level with his Ghazni 8 pack physique. It’ll be interesting to see Imran in this new look after his chocolate boy look in Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Na and the edgy journo portrayal in Delhi Belly.
