On Tuesday, he posted a reel in which he is seen working out with gym equipment, including dumbbells. He wrote, “Morphing into a different character with each movie is every actor’s dream. I just so happen to be living out mine.”

Unlike most actors, Sonam Kapoor lost weight not for a movie role, but for personal reasons. The actress became a mother in 2022, and in January this year, she gave a glimpse of her postpartum weight loss transformation. For her mirror selfie video, she dressed up in a sports bra and tights that put the spotlight on her toned midriff. She captioned it, “What a wow…20 kgs down…6 more to go.”

6. Anil Kapoor

Actor Anil Kapoor is 67 years old, but he takes his fitness regime seriously. In October 2023, he shared glimpses of the “serious physical transformation” he had to undergo for two of his films.
