Actor Punit J Pathak says he underwent a physical transformation for his new role as a cop in the youth thriller LSD: Love, Scandal & Doctors, which marks his debut on OTT.
On being asked whether he went on a full-throttle fitness regime, the actor says, “Yes. I did cut down a lot. I was in that phase where I wanted to take care of myself. I was already in the process. I knew the uniform would be fitted, so I toned down and I am pretty much convinced with my look now.”.
Punit J Pathak adds: “I wanted to be fit for the role and so I decided to start this process by going on a special high protein diet. I also made sure that I am regular with my fitness regime so that I can come in shape for the role.”
