He felt the need to tone down his physique and get a leaner look.

Actor Abhishek Mallik, who will next be seen as Ranveer in the upcoming TV show “Ek Vivah Aisa Bhi“, lost 14 kgs in a span of two months, for his role as a college boy.

He felt the need to tone down his physique and get a leaner look.

“It started while I auditioned to essay the role of Ranveer in ‘Ek Vivah Aisa Bhi’ and they happened to just love it, but then the channel and I personally wanted to change my look for the show,” Abhishek said in a statement.

“That’s when I decided to work on myself and that’s when the transformation started. I had to follow a diet that didn’t allow myself to have junk food and I was told to just focus on proper meals.”

“Although in the start of it, it was a little difficult, now that I look at myself, I feel good and I am glad I took my health and fitness seriously and lost 14 kgs,” he added.

“Ek Vivah Aisa Bhi” will be aired on &TV starting from February 6.
