It took him (Shahid) about four months to get into the shape he wanted to be in. He was ex­tremely fo­cussed, de­ter­mined and to­tally fuss-free... Samir Jaura,

Shahid Kapoor’s trainer

Shahid Kapoor sure has one of the hottest bods in B-Town. The ac­tor can be seen flaunt­ing his six-pack abs in the trailer of Padmavati but in the soon-to-be-launched ro­man­tic song Ek Dil Ek Jaan, we will get to see a lot more of it.

THAT WAS NOT THE PLAN

Shahid plays Ma­harawal Ratan Singh in Padmavati. Al­though the ac­tor al­ways main­tained his fit­ness level, much be­fore Padmavati went on floors and he be­gan shoot­ing, there was no plan to have such body shots in the film. Re­veals a source from the team, “The ini­tial plan was to not show too much of Shahid’s body but when San­jay Leela Bhansali saw how much Shahid had worked on his hot-bod, he de­cided to put a lot of shirt­less scenes show­ing off his bare chest and six packs. Even in the new song, 90 per cent of the song will have Shahid bare-bod­ied.”

THE TAR­GET

We spoke to Shahid’s trainer Samir Jaura, who trained the ac­tor for the role. He says, “It took him about four months to get into the shape he wanted to be in. He was ex­tremely fo­cussed, de­ter­mined and to­tally fuss-free. I un­der­stood his body-type and what he wanted af­ter I had a cou­ple of meet­ings with him. Shahid is play­ing a king so he had to look big and fuller. He doesn’t need to be huge in terms of body-type, but he had to be­have in a kingly man­ner. Shahid looks mind­blow­ing as the Ma­haraja and his cos­tumes are ex­tremely el­e­gant.”

SHAHID’S DIET

Shahid’s trainer also made sure he’s on a proper diet rou­tine to at­tain his de­sired look. He tells us, “Shahid was on a very low-carb diet and ob­vi­ously, it was a com­pletely veg­e­tar­ian diet. It was dif­fi­cult. But we had to put him on a diet like that be­cause he had to look leaner and lose a lit­tle weight too.”

Talk­ing about his diet plan for an en­tire day, Samir re­veals, “There was a lot of brown rice, quinoa, and broc­coli. He would have five-six meals a day. So for break­fast, he would have oat­meal and dry fruits. At around 11.30 am, he would have his pro­tein shake with some fruits. Af­ter that, he would have ra­jma but with brown rice, broc­coli, and quinoa. For evening snacks, he would have moong or chick­pea salad or peanuts. Then, he would hit the gym and have another pro­tein shake. Then, straight head for din­ner which would either be a salad with some pulses and green veg­gies or just a soup.”

WORK­OUT REGIME

Along with a fixed diet, Shahid would also do a lot of func­tional train­ing ses­sions. At the gym too, he fol­lowed a set pat­tern of work­out. Samir ex­plains, “Shahid did a lot of boot camp kind of train­ing on the beach, which had him work­ing out with ropes, sand­bags. Some­times, he would train on a lad­der, it was more like how Army men train.”
