The recently launched trailer of Rafuchakkar offered glimpses into the varied avatars of Maniesh Paul in the show, wherein, while one look required him to gain weight to resemble a pot-bellied, plump middle-aged man, another one was a drastically opposite look which portrayed him as a ripped, body builder. In order to ace each look perfectly, Maniesh followed a rigorous workout regime and diet to gain and lose weight effectively in four months.

In order to gain 10 kgs, Maniesh Paul let go of all restrictions and hogged on food for two months. Post that, it took strenuous two and a half months to not only lose weight but build muscles and a ripped body. The actor opened up about his fitness journey for his digital debut series, saying, “I have always been a fitness enthusiast, although not a gym freak but I have been working for a healthy body. However, Rafuchakkar put me on a roller coaster ride of physical transformation. As I play a con-artist, I have five different looks and avatars. Shedding my fit-healthy body for one of the looks as Pawan Kumar Bawariya, I had to resemble an ordinary middle class and middle aged guy with a paunch, for which I gained 10 Kgs. For another look, I had to lose weight as well as gain muscles to play a gym trainer. As I had just finished Jugjugg Jeeyo, I had hardly four months to do these drastic changes.”

Maniesh Paul is gearing up to show his unseen and amazing avatar in Rafuchakkar, which will kick off on Jio Cinema from June 15.
