In his last success CHALO DILLI, Vinay Pathak was seen as an uncouth round bellied middle aged man who helped Lara Dutta navigate through the North part of India. The image one has of him was that of a quintessential 'dilliwaala' who loves his 'desi ghee' and 'chaats'. This is the reason why it was simply unbelievable to see a fit and fine Vinay Pathak while he was shooting for his next major film, BHAJATHE RAHO.
'Contrary to what one may assume based on his on-screen image, Vinay is a fitness freak. It pains him when he is asked to adopt a different body structure and language for the kind of roles that he does. For CHALO DILLI he had to put on 10 kilograms since it was the demand of the character. Moreover, from BHEJA FRY to BHEJA FRY 2 as well the story has remained just the same. He has somehow been trapped in this complete 'aam aadmi' image,' says a source.
Thankfully for him though, BHAJATHE RAHO required him to carry a much dapper persona and Vinay was more than happy to oblige. Stationed in Delhi for over a month while shooting for the film, he spent quite some time taking care of his fitness.
'In fact so impressed were some of the other cast and crew members that they joined him as well. Vinay gave them tips around staying healthy and taking care of their nutrition and diet plan. It was a revelation for all involved. He didn't put on even a kilo during the making of the film,' the source adds.
Well, we would wait to see the results when the film, with Tusshar Kapoor and Ranvir Shorey as other members of this ensemble affair, releases all over in July.
