Six dramatic Bollywood celebrity transformations
The dedication to their craft is pretty incredible
Arjun Kapoor recently teased his look from the upcoming film, Panipat; the actor has apparently shaved his head, significantly bulked up and also grown an impressive ‘stache. While little else is known about the film, the Instagram post got us thinking of all the dramatic celebrity transformations we’ve witnessed so far. Here are all the actors who have transformed themselves for their films.
Priyanka Chopra in Mary Kom
Priyanka proved that nothing comes in between her and her work; for her critically-acclaimed performance as the boxer with steely grit, Chopra trained super hard to get muscular.
Ranveer Singh in Bajirao Mastani
The newlywed heartthrob shaved off his head and beard, and underwent rigorous physical painting to get in shape for the role of a warrior king.
Randeep Hooda in Sarabjit
Randeep did what many can’t even imagine; the actor shed an impressive 18 kgs in one month month. Yup, you can read that sentence again. He was almost unrecognisable in the film, true testament to his dedication.
Bhumi Pednekar in Dum Laga Ke Haisha
Bhumi Pednekar made a lasting impression, as Sandhya, in Dum Laga Ke Haisha. Major props to the actress for making her debut with such an unconventional film.
Hrithik Roshan in Guzaarish
To convincingly play the role of a quadriplegic, Hrithik Roshan had to gain a significant amount of weight for this film; his performance was widely appreciated.
Anushka Sharma in PK
Anushka rocked a shorter, pixie cut for PK.
