Ranbir Kapoor has often played the quintessential chocolate boy hero in most of his movies. The actor has sported a lean physique right from his debut film and hasn't transformed his body like other actors such as Aamir Khan or SRK. But the 'Rock Star' actor took us by surprise in the first look of 'Bombay Velvet'.
Ranbir plays a street fighter going by the name Johnny Balraj in the movie and to look like a real fighter, he underwent rigorous training. In the first look, the charming actor shows off his toned back and looks bulked-up and ripped than usual. If sources are to be believed, Ranbir even sports six-pack abs in this film and will be seen doing some heavy duty action scenes including a cage fight.
It is clear that the actor worked out hard to change his physique and go from a lean frame to a muscular avatar. He even learnt boxing to play the part right. The makers roped in Kenyan MMA fighter Ash for him. Though he underwent intense training, he had injured his back during the gruelling sessions and was on a week-long break to recover. Also read how Ranbir maintains his physique.
This is the first time the actor has shown such a drastic change in his body and we are surely loving it! In an interview to a leading daily, he confessed, 'I haven't worked on my physique for a film so far, but Bombay Velvet demands it. And I have always maintained that I would make the effort for the right film.' Ranbir stars opposite Anushka Sharma in 'Bombay Velvet' who too was in the news last year for her alleged lip job for this film.
