Now, during an interview with Pinkvilla, the Kick actor revealed that he had to lose around 32 kilos for the role. “Being starving and underweight as an actor is a luxury, being starving and underweight as a director is a curse. Because you lose patience, you don’t have patience and you’re hungry. People are having lunch breaks, evening nashta breaks, that break and you’re just a person sitting there hungry. When you’re hungry you have more energy. So that was a very big thing which I think everybody suffered from me as a hangry person on set. I had lost about 30 to 32 kilos by the end of it,” Randeep said.

He added, “It was very very challenging. One thing that happens to every human being is that they lose patience when they’re starving. That’s the first thing that happens and you get too much energy and you say something even softly but it comes across (differently).”

Swatantrya Veer Savarkar is not the only movie where he underwent a massive weight loss transformation. For the 2016 film ‘Sarabjit’, Randeep Hooda had lost 20kg in 28 days.
