'Animal' Ranbir Kapoor transforms for 'Ramayana': Actor's trainer spills secrets

Actor's jaw-dropping physical transformation highlights dedication to craft

Entertainment Desk April 25, 2024

Ranbir Kapoor is amping up his fitness game, and it's evident that the actor gives it all his physically when preparing for his roles. The star has been making waves with his remarkable fitness journey, as documented by his physical trainer Shivoham. 

In a recent Instagram post, Shivoham provided a glimpse into Kapoor's transformation over the past three years, showcasing his journey from his muscular appearance in the highly divisive yet wildly successful Animal, to his latest shredded physique, likely for his role in the upcoming mythological epic Ramayana.

The carousel post shared by Shivoham on Wednesday features three images, each representing a significant stage in Kapoor's physical evolution. The first picture captures Kapoor in his beefed-up avatar from Animal, where the actor portrayed a character requiring a formidable physical presence.

The subsequent image depicts Kapoor in a more regular state, poised to embark on his transformation journey. Finally, the third image showcases Kapoor's recent physical form—a ripped physique that presumably aligns with his upcoming portrayal in Ramayana.

"It was all hard work over a period of three plus years," revealed Shivoham. "Nothing is ever achieved by taking shortcuts in life. Clarity and a vision of the end goal with a proper planned and structured program to reach to that goal is essential. Then again, if you don't have the will, discipline, consistency, and the fire to achieve the goals, no amount of planning and structure will help."

Furthermore, in a video shared on Instagram, the actor's fitness coach treated viewers to a glimpse of Kapoor's intense workout routine, conducted amidst lush green surroundings.

The footage depicts Kapoor engaging in a variety of exercises, including weightlifting, running, and other strength-training activities. Additionally, Kapoor incorporates swimming, cycling, and hiking into his regimen, showcasing his commitment to holistic fitness.

As Kapoor prepares to embody his next character, his commitment to physical excellence highlights his dedication to his craft. With each role, Kapoor continues to push the boundaries of his capabilities, captivating audiences with his transformative performances on screen.
