Farhan Akhtar
Farhan Akhtar went from a regular pretty boy look to a stunning body of a professional runner in a matter of months.

Hrithik Roshan
Hrithik Roshan has always been known for his stellar physique, that’s why everyone was shocked to see his body transformation for Guzaarish. The actor gained a spectacular amount of weight to depict a paralyzed man only to bounce back to his spectacular form after an intense 10-week workout program. All this for the superhero hit Krrrish 3.


Prabhas never boasted rocky muscles, so everyone was not sure whether he’d pull off his role in Bahubali, an epic story set in Ancient India. Nevertheless, the actor has done the impossible gaining 25 kg of weight and then training like crazy to create chiselled abs and hard muscles.


John Abraham
John Abraham is easily one of the fittest actors in India, that’s why everyone was shocked to see his transformation for a geek role in a romcom Jhootha Hi Sahi. He stopped his workout regime and gained more than a few pounds. He then quickly got back into shape to star in the thriller Force.


Rajkummar Rao
Rajkummar Rao may be the most passionate actor on the list. He never takes his acting lightly and is ready to do literally everything for the role! He starved himself considerably to look thin and malnourished in Trapped, then quickly got back into shape to star in Behen Hogi Teri, and then started gaining weight for his new show called Bose. Now this is true dedication we’re talking about!


Randeep Hooda
Not many actors would go so far as to lose 18 kg of weight and muscles in just one month. Nevertheless, when Randeep Hooda was offered the main role in the biopic Sarbjit he didn’t hesitate for a moment. He changed beyond recognition for the movie and we’re hoping he’ll be able to get back to his stunning physique.
