Janhvi Kapoor to Gain Weight for Kargil Girl After Losing 10 kilos for Roohi Afza
Janhvi Kapoor is gearing up for her upcoming films Roohi Afza and Kargil Girl. She has been working hard on her transformation and now has to gain weight for Kargil Girl.
Janhvi Kapoor made her big Bollywood debut with Dhadak last year and has been winning the hearts of her audiences ever since. Her fan base has been growing and her performance has been lauded by the film fraternity. The Dhadak actress has had to go through several changes in her appearance and body weight lately and the whole ordeal of gaining and losing weight isn’t going to end any time soon for the starlet. The actress had to gain around 6 kilos for her upcoming film, Kargil Girl; which is based on the life of an IAF officer Gunjan Saxena, and also had to lose 10k kilos for her upcoming film, Roohi Afza.
And now, if reports are to be believed, the actress has to put on weight once again before the second schedule of Kargil Girl which is all set to kick off in Georgia. Janhvi Kapoor has been putting in a lot of effort at the gym, under the guidance of her trainer Namrata Purohit to get in shape for the film. According to reports, a brief was given to her trainer, which said, “to make Janhvi look slightly plump". The actress gained around 6 kilos in 45 days for the first schedule of the film, which was shot in Lucknow. The next target however was to lose 10kg before commencing shooting for Roohi Afza.
And now, as Janhvi prepares herself for the second schedule of Kargil Girl, she has to gain weight once again. Janhvi has six weeks to slip into the character of Gunjan Saxena, and her trainer Namrata has started the same regimen that they used the first time around. Namrata told the tabloid, "She is working out six days a week, for two to three hours daily. For the first two days, she does EMS [Electrical Muscle Stimulation] - for 25 minutes, and the remaining four days are dedicated to pilates. She has a back injury because of which her training has to be monitored." She went on to explain that her meals are rich in protein. "Janhvi has a sweet tooth. So, my mother makes these healthy laddoos with jaggery and nuts. Ideally, she is allowed one a day, but she gulps down three of them,” the trainer said.
Kargil Girl was announced in December 2018 and the first schedule of the film has been shot in Lucknow. The second schedule will now be shot in Georgia. Aside from Janhvi Kapoor, the film also stars Pankaj Tripathi as Janhvi's father, Neena Gupta as her mother and Angad Bedi as the actress's brother.
