Sidharth Malhotra To Gain Weight for An Upcoming Film

Reportedly, actor Sidharth Malhotra, who appeared previously in Ek Villain, is working on gaining so much weight that he will require a wardrobe change. The actor is doing this for his forthcoming movie.


The film is a remake of American sports drama ‘Warrior’. After completing his previous hit Ek Villain, Sidharth is now looking forward to his next project.

The actor told reporters in a recent interview; “I am preparing for my next, which is the remake of Warrior. I am required to gain seven to eight kilos and learn martial arts. So, I need to eat and train. I have about five to six weeks to gain weight and then will shoot.”

Sidharth, whose height is over 6ft, is trying to weight 90kgs.

“I’ll have lot of fun training for it and gaining weight. My priority is to make my t-shirts and clothes tighter, so that I don’t fit into them. The character requires it. He is a mixed martial arts fighter,” he added.

“There is more of heavy weight lifting. I train less and eat more. Calorie intake is higher. There is more of protein in my diet. I train on alternate days or four times a week. But, I also need to keep flexibility in mind,” Sidharth said in a statement.

The 29-year-old is excited about the Endemol production as he wanted to play the role of a fighter since childhood.

“I wanted to play a fighter like every boy who wants to do action and be in the ring, though I am not playing a wrestler,” said the actor, who made his debut with Student of The Year.

Sidharth don’t have a female lead in the film.

“I don’t have a female lead in the movie. It’s more about a young fighter. It’s not a love story as such,” he said.

His on-screen chemistry with Alia Bhatt and Parineeti Chopra has been much appreciated by the audience.
