Health & Nutrition - - FIT & FAMOUS -

“I have been train­ing Rana since 2008. For ‘Baahubali 2’, we trained for al­most a year. We worked on the body parts that needed more at­ten­tion - chest and arms. We would train ev­ery day for an hour in the morn­ing and evening in my gym. “His diet was tough to fol­low – but it included a lot of meat and veg­gies, and he was off pro­cessed food com­pletely. Ev­ery­thing that he ate was nat­u­ral. He didn’t have pro­tein shakes or sup­ple­ments ei­ther. Rana was dis­ci­plined, and was will­ing

to go to any length to achieve the de­sired re­sults. He also stopped con­sum­ing al­co­hol. All his meals were made in my gym café by my chef, un­der my su­per­vi­sion. “In the sec­ond half of ‘Baahubali 2’, he had to look big­ger, meaner, tougher and stronger. So to­wards the end of the pro­gramme, when he wanted to burn the en­tire fat off, he started do­ing car­dio (tread­mill) in the morn­ing, on an empty stom­ach for half-an-hour. He did brisk walking too. “In­ci­den­tally, the ac­tion chore­og­ra­phy and stunt di­rec­tion was done by ex­perts from the ‘Game Of Thrones’ team.”
