Akshay Oberoi plays an air force pilot in the film starring Hrithik Roshan and Deepika Padukone

After being a part of some popular web shows, Akshay Oberoi will now be seen in the keenly-awaited Hrithik Roshan and Deepika Padukone starrer Fighter. He plays the role of an air force pilot in the movie directed by Siddharth Anand. Normally, actors take help of a trainer to get into a particular body type to play such characters. However, Akshay decided to train himself to achieve body transformation for this character. The ploy has worked as the actor has achieved the desired result after three months of training.

Speaking about the same, Akshay said in a statement, “I have been working out extensively before and during the filming of the movie. The idea was to build up muscles with intense training, which I personally trained myself for. The role required me to have my broader body frame to look right for the role of an air force pilot. I’m playing the role of an air force officer and his physical appearance has to compliment the character and hence I took it upon myself to undergo this transformation as it was a necessity. I went through rigorous training for months ahead.”

Apart from Fighter, Akshay will soon be starting working on a brand new season of the ZEE5 show Broken News 2, Laal Rang 2 and is anticipating the release of his film Varchasva.

Fighter is the next project for Siddharth Anand after the hugely successful Shah Rukh Khan and Deepika Padukone starrer Pathaan, which released earlier this year. The movie also stars Anil Kapoor in a pivotal role.
