Bhakhtyar Irani who is currently seen in the show ‘Badi Dooor Se Aaye Hai’, had to lose weight, thanks to the writer-director of the show, Aatish Kapadia.
The actor who never thought he was obese had to undergo a scene in the show where the lines described him to be fat and required him to lose weight. Though it was just a script, Bhakhtyar could not take it! He lost his cool and personally took it on himself to reduce weight. He says, “The actor who had to mouth dialogues in a scene, had to comment on my big waist and huge frame of body. I asked Aatish to change the lines because I was not obese. He asked me to take it lightly but I could not, so I went on a diet plan for two months. I was drinking four shakes a day, every day, which were a substitute to the regular food we take. I walked 45 minutes every day. From 90 kilos I came to around 70 kilos in a span of two months. Now, slowly and steadily, I will get on to the regular diet.”
Ask Bhakhtyar if he is happy reducing weight in such a drastic fashion and he says, “It worked for me and I am healthy and fit. I did this just to prove that I am not obese and no one can call me fat even if it is a part of the script.”
