Actor Dhanveer Singh gained nearly 10 kilos of muscle weight for his role in the upcoming digital film “State Of Siege: Temple Attack”. Dhanveer plays a terrorist in the Ken Ghosh directorial starring Akshaye Khanna.

“When I was cast for this role, I had a meeting with the director. He said that I’ll be doing the character of Hanif who is physically strong. At that time, I was lean, so I had to put on almost 10 kgs of muscle weight. I worked hard in the gym and physically it was quite a tough character,” he recalls.
