According to sources, the Barfi! actor will be portraying three phases of Sanjay’s lifeOne of them will be the beefed-up Ranbir, one from the 90s and the last from the Khalnayak star’s time in rehab.

“Ranbir has gained more than 13 kg now, which is all muscle and no fat. His waistline has gone down by an inch and he has been losing fat while building up muscle. Ranbir has an hour-and-a-half of intense workout sessions,” revealed fitness trainer Kunal Gir.

“It is a big challenge to bulk up Ranbir like Sanjay, but he’s committed to doing whatever needs to be done. He even wakes up at 3 am, has a protein shake and goes back to sleep,” he added.

It will be exciting to see what Ranbir looks like, especially after Aamir Khan’s drastic physical transformation for last year’s Dangal.
