For ‘perfectionist’ mega-star actor Aamir Khan losing or gaining weight for his lead screen-character has always been a major concern be it for ‘Ghajini’ or for ‘PK’ or even for ‘Dangal’ . Revealing his fitness-ka-raaz the charismatic Khan shares,“ During ‘Dangal’ when I was invited to Shah Rukh Khan’s house for a formal daawat with invited special guests. I carried my own tiffin. But at the same time the quantum of food was large enough, the full rice-sabzi-daal- quota that we all eat daily.
They were all startled at my ‘weight-loss-diet’and my food-plate was the centre of distraction,” recalls Aamir with a chuckle.With timely advice from two Dr. Dhurandhar (s)-- both father and son , by now Aamir insists that he has understood the fundamentals of the lose-or-gain calories-muscle process science.
Which explains why the otherwise US-based eminent nutritional-biochemist-doctor-turned-author Dr. Nikhil Dhurandhar invited Aamir to be the mascot guest to release his latest paper-back ( HarperCollins India) book titled ‘Dhurandhar’s Fat-Loss Diet’. Incidentally, Aamir had previously been consulting Nikhil’s famous father Dr.Vinod, but as the former was unwell, by default the Khan got hitched on to the competent gen-next son for precious guidance.

“In my next movie ‘Lal Singh Chaddha’, I need to look very young and I am planning to lose 20 kgs. In the last two weeks I have lost around 4 kgs. It’s easy to resist temptation by holding back your urge for five minutes or gulping a glassful of water or ultimately relishing just a spoonful of something you crave for, ”signs off Aamir
