Akshay Kumar gained weight to play a character from Delhi in Aanand L Rai’s Raksha Bandhan; take a look
Bollywood actor Akshay Kumar has maintained strong standards of fitness throughout his career.
However, recently Akshay got that a chance to let himself go and feast to his heart’s content. Akshay, a character from Delhi in Aanand L Rai’s Raksha Bandhan, had to bulk up for the movie.
It is said that Akshay had to lose six kg to look slimmer as a cop for Sooryavanshi.
However, Akshay is not at all complaining. “I quite enjoy the process of losing or gaining weight for a character because I am able to do it in a healthy way. I have gained 5 kg in a totally natural process. And it also allowed me the rare indulgence of eating meri maa ke haath ka halwa. What a blessing!”
Akshay, who is currently shooting for Raksha Bandhan in Mumbai, will be seen sharing screen space with five new faces who play his sisters in the film.
