Everyone has been raving about Ajay Devgan's body off late. The actor has been sporting a beefy look for Reliance Entertainment's SINGHAM!
Says the director Rohit Shetty, "We've tried to achieve for AJ the physique of a man who could bash up 20 people, if he so wished. It's not a six-pack look. Anyone can achieve that with injections and steroids. The manliness has to come through as he plays a tough cop who is from a village on the Maharastra-Goa border. It is a raw action film filled with hand to hand combat scenes, something one rarely gets to see in movies in this day and age of high gadgetry. Ajay's trained Prashant Sawant is putting him through the paces."
Adds Prashant, "We trained for three months. Ajay plays a very tough cop. He needed to look the part by losing weight, developing more cuts on his body and appear more lean and muscular. After training for an hour and half, I oversaw his diet and made sure he maintained a high-protein low-carb diet every three hours. I then had him do a rigorous combination of weights and circuit super sets that incorporated all techniques including pushups and pull-ups."
When quizzed about the time it took for Ajay to build his physique, "It didn't take him much time. Ajay has a great body and he has always been a fitness freak. It's not difficult for him to maintain it," said the trainer.
Fans of the actor can look forward to seeing him in a completely raw and desi action hero avatar!
