Ajay Devgn’s beefed-up look for Reliance Entertainment’s Singham seems to be the talk of the town lately.
In the film Ajay plays a tough cop from a village on the Maharastra-Goa border, who will be seen doing a lot of hand to hand combat scenes, something one rarely gets to see in movies in this day and age of high gadgetry. Director Rohit Shetty therefore did not just want Ajay to develop a six pack but instead wanted him to get a more realistic, brawny physique.
Ajay’s trainer Prashant Sawant had a major role to play in ensuring this. He trained with the actor for three months; helping him losing weight and making him more lean and muscular. He got him to do a rigorous combination of weights and circuit super sets that incorporated all techniques including push-ups and pull-ups. Prashant also monitored Ajay’s diet and made sure he maintained a high-protein low-carb diet to get that desired look.
Luckily, it didn’t seem like a tough task given Ajay’s penchant for fitness and the fact that he already had a great physique!
Fans of the actor can look forward to seeing him in a completely raw and desi action hero avatar in Singham which releases in July this year.
