The Highway actor pretty much took over social media tweeting a picture of his incredible transformation. He’s gone from 94 to 66 kgs (that’s an 18 kgs weight loss) in just 28 days for his role as Sarabjit Singh, the Indian who died in a Pakistani prison. The before and after on this one is extremely hard to digest and hunger-pang inducing.
The 39-year-old Haryanvi Jat, who likes his alu ki sabzi and choorma, had to go on a starvation diet, closely super vised by his sister and a doctor.
“He cut down on his meals, filling up on coffee and water, even when we were shoot ing in Palghar and gorging on some great food. In his years in jail, Sarabjit was kept in a 4 x 4 room and had rat bites all over him. The first time I met Randeep, I told him that I wanted to see his bones. He took up the chal lenge and shocked even me,” admits Omung.
In fact, the first day, a drastically different Randeep walked into the set, squatted on the floor behind the monitor and largely went unno ticed. “It was only when I called for him that I realised he was sitting right there,” reminisces the National Award-winning director.
