We have all experienced or at least seen our own share of Bollywood inspired moments in life. The tinsel town of our loving stars has been giving us life lessons – both onscreen and off-screen. But what is it that we envy the most when it comes to our beloved Bollywood stars? It cannot be their dressing sense because hello, we can’t really afford them (rolls eyes). And it definitely can’t be their makeup looks because that again requires hiring an expensive makeup artist, you see. Wait, it’s their perfect bods that we desire and envy the most! Don’t you agree?
Most of us are tired of our ‘googly – woogly’ cheeks and that protruding belly. Hey, relax Y’all! We are not alone here in this battle. Even the Bollywood stars have had their fair share of ‘weighty’ issues before their unbelievable fitness transformations. And when they can do it, why can’t we? So, for now, why don’t you just sit back, relax, and check out these Bollywood celebs who went from fat to fit. Get inspired by the stars or as they say, “Let the stars lead you!”
1. Sonam Kapoor
She is regarded as the ‘fashion icon’ of Bollywood. She is known for her fashion knowledge more than her acting abilities. But did you know that the diva weighed a whopping 86 kilograms when she was signed for her first film? The actress went on to lose 30 kilos for her acting debut. Sonam has acknowledged in many interviews that it was her mother who helped her achieve this fitness feat in her life. She said that her mother ensured that she maintained an arm’s length distance from all the unhealthy foods that she loved to binge on, since her teen days like fries, ice creams, and desserts.
Sonam is now one of the fittest actresses of Bollywood.
2. Bhumi Phadnekar
We loved her in Dum Laga Ke Haisha, didn’t we? Quite contrary to what Sonam did for her debut movie, Bhumi who already weighed 72 kgs had to put on more weight in order to look like her character in the movie. This is crazy right! Where most actresses out there want a glamorous debut launch in the movie industry, Bhumi broke all stereotypes by opting for an acting debut like this. However, after the wrapping of the movie, Bhumi lost all the flab and now looks like a fitness queen. She’s reportedly lost 27 kilos and that too without having to stay away from her favorite foods.
3. Sonakshi Sinha
We have the beautiful Dabangg girl doing it too, she weighed almost 90 plus kilos when Salman Khan saw acting potential in her. For her role in Dabangg, Sonakshi put in all the hard work and lost an unbelievable 30 kgs for her debut movie with the most loved and wanted Khan of Bollywood.
Even after her debut, she didn’t really take the super skinny route. She looked curvy, cute, and chubby. Although we loved this, there were a huge number of people who body shamed her for the curvy figure and she received a lot of flak for not “fitting in” the skinny category. This persuaded Sonakshi to embark on another fitness transformation journey and now she looks like a ravishing fitness diva!
4. Parineeti Chopra And Arjun Kapoor
The other sister of the other Chopra clan, Parineeti, also went from flab to fit after entering Bollywood. The Ishaqzaade actress made her debut opposite another debutant, Boney Kapoor’s son Arjun Kapoor. Both the actors went under a drastic weight loss program for their career. While Arjun went from 120 kilos to 68 kilos and also sported a six pack in the movie, our chirpy Parineeti too went from size 38 to size 30 for her first movie. And since then, both of them have never drifted from the path of staying fit.
5. Sara Ali Khan
Sara might be just two films old, both of which did wonders at the box office. People have begun to admire her acting skills, sense of humor, and the impeccable wisdom towards addressing the most bizarre questions thrown at her by the paparazzi. Sara is also being admired for her dramatic weight loss journey. She’s reportedly lost 30 kilos in order to prep herself for the biggest movie industry, Bollywood. Sara has been open about her weight loss journey and how she managed to deal with PCOS. And even today, we’ve found the paparazzi capture her visits to the gym much more than her presence in the film industry’s events. This young actress sure has just begun her starry journey.
Bollywood’s always been an inspiration to us. We hope the weight loss documentaries of these actors from the Bollywood industry have helped you to at least think about a better, fitter you. It sure did make us rethink our diet plans. Who’s been your most inspiring actor from the tinsel town? Let us know in the comments below.
