Sidharth Malhotra has built himself as a lucrative brand name post the success of Mohit Suri’s Ek Villain. The actor, who is all set to face Akshay Kumar in Karan Malhotra’s Brothers, needs to have a toned and athletic body for the film. The physical preparation for the film has already begun from Malhotra’s side. Working out, the actor is maintaining a protein rich diet for himself.
Unlike most stars who resort to steroids to pump themselves up, Sidharth is hell bent on keeping it natural. Adhering strongly to a strict dietary regime, he is banking massively on weight lifting and martial arts to get the chiseled physique desired for the film.
He has already put on 8 kilos of muscle weight for the film and syncing himself in the beefed up body. Playing the role of a martial arts fighter, the kind of body desired of the actor needs flexibility and should seem athletic.
Brothers is the official remake of 2011 Hollywood flick Warriors. Given the actor’s investment in the physical part of the film, Sidharth is working hard at getting for himself the right body needed to play a warrior in the film. The Martial Arts training is on for him to rehearse his moves before he faces the ring opposite the much trained Khiladi Kumar. The film is all set to go on floors this month and hence the toiling has been harder for the actor.
