Like Aamir Khan, Salman Khan also had to put some weight for his upcoming new movie Sultan.
The actor has already put on seven kilos and is in the process of piling on eight more by November 22. That’s when he starts shooting for Sultan, which has him playing a wrestler.
To achieve his goal, Salman has been undergoing some “painful” training. Says the superstar, “The weight I need to put on is of the muscular kind. It’s got nothing to do with diet. I eat correctly — I have my protein, chicken and fish. I need to train harder and be focussed.”
His training regime includes different kinds of workouts. He says, “I am learning how to grapple, the floor work (important for fighters), how to kick and how to get kicked! It’s not that we cannot do what they (fighters) do, but they have been doing it for so many years, they do it with ease. I need to get that ease, the flexibility, power and quickness in me. I do about three-four kicks every day, but have to increase it to 150-200 kicks.” Salman devotes four hours to this workout and follows it up with weight training.
