A 25 Kg protective shield for Sanjay Dutt
Actor Sanjay Dutt who has completed one and a half month schedule shooting in Jaipur for his upcoming Historical period drama PANIPAT is not only hitting the gym for a desired physique of the King Ahmad Shah Durrani but the actor is making sure he perfects his art in carrying the heavy Armour. Actor Sanjay Dutt is wearing one of the heaviest armours till date. The protective shield that Dutt is wearing weighs around 25 kgs.
Earlier, last year when the actor went for a hair, make-up and costume trials, the armour was specially designed according to Dutt's personality. While shooting in Jaipur, the actor would hit the gym in between shoots or right before wearing the heavy armour so that he can perform effectively and give his best. The armours worn by the kings during that era inspire the armour.
Not only this, the actor also followed a strict diet while he was shooting in Jaipur. He would consume food such as salads rich in proteins, chicken with no fat and fish. To slip into the character of an Afghan King, Sanjay Dutt had completely cut down foods, which contained fats and carbs. Sanjay Dutt had one more gym at the place he lived. So that he could workout anytime while he is free. Since Sanjay Dutt has to maintain a certain physique the actor worked out in between shots and post pack-up depending on the availability of time.
