Pakistani actor Fawad Khan is busy promoting his upcoming film ‘The Legend of Maula Jatt’. Fawad has recently revealed in an interview that he wanted to do body transformation by copying Christian Bale and Aamir Khan. However, it was too heavy for him to do so and he had to be admitted to the hospital.
In an interview with Something Haute, Fawad revealed that the body transformation helped him a lot in his upcoming film ‘The Legend of Moula Jatt’. But now he will never think about it again. He said, “What I did to myself was not right. Now I’ll never do that again. I did some things that had a bad effect on me.”
He also added, “People should be aware that when anyone tries to do body transformation there are side effects. Same happened with me. My kidneys had stopped working. After which I had to be admitted to the hospital for 10 days.
Fawad has also told that he was soon discharged from the hospital. But, it took him 3 months to fully recover. He also said, “I had diabetes so my planning to gain weight made me terribly ill. Before the film my weight was around 73-75 kgs but then my weight went down to 100 kgs.
Fawad believes that whatever happened was behind his thinking. He wanted to copy Christian Bale and Aamir Khan. The way both the stars do body transformation for their film, Fawad also wanted to do the same. But, this thought of his got heavy on him.
He further said, “I was told to walk less and be tension free. The way I did it was not the right way. Since I had very little time, whatever happened happened due to circumstances. I am not Christian Bale or Aamir Khan. But I have tried to do as he did. No one should do like I have done.”
Significantly, British actor Christian Bale gained about 18 kg (40 lb) to play Dick Cheney in his film ‘Vice’. Not only this, he used to spend hours in the make-up room for his role. He was given an Oscar award for his best acting in this film. At the same time, Aamir Khan had increased the weight of 30 kg for ‘Dangal’.
