Sonam Kapoor was overweight, Adhyayan Suman - 110 kg, Jackky Bhagnani 130-kg and Mimoh Chakraborty was a burger chap - yes they were the overweight celebrity kids who had cut the fat for their tinsel town debut.
On his way from "fat-to-fit” under trainer Chaurasia Shekhar Suman's son Adhyayan had an overweight body at his mid-teens reaching 110 kg. Adhyayan started working out Inspired and getting a complex from his father's chiselled body. Starting with his father he frequented the gym and reached around 85 kg with a waistline of around 38 at the time of his debut film Hal-e-Dil in 2008. Adhyayan still sweat it out in the gym still being a bit on the higher side with a waistline of 34 and unstable weight range.
130-kg and 44-inch Jackky, Bhagnani's son shed 60 kg to flaunt a well-toned body with a wonderful waistline in his upcoming debut Kal Kissne Dekha. Jackky was around 130 kg when he started to frequent the gym under trainer Satyadev 'Satya' Chaurasia and in less than two years time he reduced around 60 kg. Putting in efforts like a dedicated professional, he was very religious towards his body to achieve a lean look for his debut.
Mithun Chakraborty's son Mimoh's stories are similar shedding more than a few kilos for his debut Jimmy in 2008. Mimoh started the task of reducing when his director B. Subhash, who made Mithun's Disco Dancer, asked him to go for a transformation from a roly-poly kid to a fit Bollywood actor.
An extreme McDonald burger addict, Mimoh was strictly asked to stay away from them and for asked to do proper workouts and to follow a healthy diet to keep him fit for three years. Finding it the difficult phase of his life but Mimoh managed to shave off the flab for his first film.
Anil Kapoor's daughter the fashion trend setter Sonam lost oodles of weight for Saawariya in 2000. Sonam who flaunts an ultra-slim figure now was asked to cut her overweight during her assistant director phase with Sanjay Leela Bhansali before she was offered the lead in "Saawariya". Taking it as a challenge Sonam went for dieting and weight reduction under the supervision of celebrity trainer Sherveer Vakil.
Sonakshi daughter of actor Shatrughan Sinha's too worked hard to get over her "tubby" looks and lost 26 kilos last year to grab eyeballs as the only woman to model for a menswear line at the Lakme Fashion Week in Mumbai.
Now all are aware of being fit and for Adhyayan he is not crazy about any packs but rather wants to look fit on screen. Jacky ," said who already have six packs is not ready to try for eight packs since he feels he perhaps don't have that much muscle and is concerned about staying fit and being toned."
Meanwhile Jackky’s vote is all for anti-obesity now. "Obesity is the biggest disease of mankind - bigger than even cancer. Your self-confidence is low and you become mentally sick. There was a time when I used to feel conscious because of my weight. I was never at ease. It was a very bad phase of my life," recalls the actor Jackky
Hope the overweight young generation would atleast try to be in shape if not ready to struggle to have a muscular body like theirs eniors Shah Rukh Khan and Aamir Khan despite being above 40 has scorched screens with their six and eight pack abs.
