Kartik Aaryan’s trainer REACTS to accusations

Pandey firmly refuted these accusations in a recent interview with the Indian Express. He explained that such doubts cast a shadow not only on the actor but also on the trainer's methods. He stated, "Whoever feels this transformation is not natural, I am ready to pay from my own pocket to take the NADA (National Anti-Doping Agency) test. When you cast doubt on an actor, you also start doubting the coach, that, ‘Oh this is a result of artificial supplement, this is because of dope and injections.’ It is said by only those who themselves can’t achieve it.”

Pandey, a former national-level boxer himself, is well-versed in anti-doping regulations and their importance. He stressed the long-term health risks associated with performance-enhancing drugs and his commitment to safe, sustainable training methods. "I have been a national boxer myself and I know after every match, we are tested. We know if we take something, we might win a match, but it will affect us long term. I would never recommend anyone to take artificial supplements and build a body," Pandey stated.
