Actor Rana Daggubati is known for adapting to his roles meticulously and doesn’t hesitate from going that extra mile to look apt for his role. For Baahubali, Rana Daggubati built his body over four years and beefed up so that he could look muscular for the role of Bhallala Deva. Recently, Rana daggubati first look from his upcoming trilingual film, Haathi Mere Saathi, was unveiled and the actor surprised everyone with a lean look. In his latest interview with a popular Mumbai-based daily, Bhallaldeva revealed that he has lost 15 kilos for his environmental activist role in Haathi Mere Saathi. To get in shape for Haathi Mere Saathi, I didn’t eat non-veg for almost six weeks. I stopped weight training and did simple cardio exercises to shed the muscle, “I want to live my character,” Rana Daggubati was quoted as saying by Mid-Day. Rana also adds that he knew he had to shed the extra weight he had built for Baahubali, for his upcoming and pending projects.
Haathi Mere Saathi will go on floors from January 25 in Thailand. The film will hit the screens during Diwali.
