Body of work (Aamir Khan)
At 48, when Aamir Khan released his naked (well, almost) poster of PK everyone was stunned. From his collar bones to his abs, from perfectly chiselled chest to biceps and forearms, he scored a century, once again. He has been working on his physique since Ghajini, then in Dhoom 3 he flaunted his torso. Stardust reveals the inner secret of Aamir’s perfect bod.
The first time we saw the video of Making of Ghajini, where Aamir Khan sweats out to get the perfect abs, we knew that he doesn’t believe in short cut. While some actors of this generation prefer computer graphics for the final output, he likes to achieve it in reality. Each time his trainer Satyajit Chaurasia would give him a challenge, he would work hard to achieve the goal. In the 30 minute long work we have seen him screaming his lungs out of pain, and yet not giving up on the hope.
Before PK, he had to take special training in gymnastic for his aerial stunts. The actor included a mix of HIIT (high intensity interval training) for cadio.The cardio intervals comprised boxing and low and high impact aerobic exercise. A mix of added resistance training anf gymnastics expercises such as rolling V-Sits for toning his body and building core strength were also a part of his regime.
