VICKY KAUSHAL TO UNDERGO EXTENSIVE TRAINING TO PLAY AN ARMY OFFICER
Actor Vicky Kaushal recently wrapped his final schedule for Meghna Gulzar’s directorial venture, Raazi in Srinagar, Jammu and Kashmir. He immediately flew back to Mumbai where he has begun prepping for his next film, Uri. The film is based on the recent surgical strike conducted by the Indian Army, and Vicky plays the lead commander-in-chief who led the operation of the surgical strike and led the group of paratroopers for the Uri attack.
Before the film goes on floors in January, Vicky has been asked to gain some muscle.The actor has recently begun working out rigorously for this film and also has a special diet and workout to follow. Soon after, he will be meeting and spending time with some real-life army men. He will also be training under them so that he gets the body language right. This will be followed by training for martial arts for his action sequences as well as ammunition training.
Vicky says, “I have three months for prep. I have to beef up and gain lean muscle as the aim is to not only build up size but also strength. This includes functional, core and weight training. My diet is a combination of high carbs and high proteins for now. This will be followed by a monthlong martial arts training and after that paramilitary training. The action includes hand combat for which knowing martial arts is must.”
