Talking about his injury, Varun says, “I was hurt while shooting for Dhishoom. I was advised a week’s rest, but I could only manage three days.”
The injury has resulted in the actor having to change his workout routine. “My workout now includes more of cardio. I am aiming to go more towards the lean look.” said Varun.
Varun also informed, “It’s a 40-day schedule, which includes a lot of action…a lot of running, skidding, hanging by helicopters. When I was training before I got injured, along with weights, my regime also included pilates for flexibility. Also, I play football, and that really helps you look bright. It also helps with agility and adds a natural flush to your skin.”
Besides coping up with the action the actor will also go bare-bodied in the movie. Speaking on his current physique he said, “No, I am not in the shape that I want to achieve. But there’s still a month. Once we get to Abu Dhabi, I will work to get into the best shape possible. Plus, there’s John over there. We have a good gym there, and John knows so much about fitness I am going to use him to train better.”
He is currently training with fitness instructor Prashant Sawant. The next schedule of the movie will begin soon in Abu Dhabi.
