A filmy crash course
Be it horse riding learning a language or sword fighting, Bollywood actors are doing intense prep for their roles
Basking in the glory of his recent success Bajrangi Bhaijaan, actor Salman Khan is busy preparing for his next already. The actor will be playing the role of a wrestler in Sultan, and visiting akhadas for the same. “I’m training for Sultan now. I’ve done just a quarter of the training and it’s just so exhausting already!” he said.
SUSHANT SINGH RAJPUT
Actor Sushant Singh Rajput is leaving no stone unturned to perfect his look in an upcoming biopic on cricketer MS Dhoni. He’s grown his hair, practicing Dhoni’s trademark helicopter shots, and has also been jogging and taking short sprints to get into shape.
Actor Kangana Ranaut is set to learn a host of new things for her upcoming film Rangoon. “Kangana plays Julia, a Broadway star, in the film. She’ll undergo almost three months of training in dance,” says a source. The actor is learning horse riding and sword fighting for her upcoming Rani Laxmibai biopic too.
Actor Emraan Hashmi surprised all with his look in former cricketer Mohammad Azharuddin’s biopic. He had to wear a four-inch heel in soles to stand six feet one inches tall. A basketball shoe flushed with other heel materials was used to help him get the desired height.
Actor Deepika Padukone is also upping her action game for Bajirao Mastani. “As I’ve never done a role that requires any of this, it’ll be hard. Horse riding should be fun, but it’ll also be stressful as I know the training would be done simultaneously with the shooting of the film,” Deepika had told us earlier.
