Enjoying a steady string of successes including Welcome Back, Dil Dhadakne Do and Mubarakan, Anil Kapoor is noted for experimenting with his roles and looks. The talented actor, who is known to look perennially youthful, will be donning a salt and pepper hair-do and a lean physique in the highly anticipated Fanney Khan, produced by KriArj Entertainment, T-Series and Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra.
It is learnt that along with a workout routine, Anil also went off salt and sugar for twenty days to achieve the perfect haggard look, to step into the role of a struggling musician. An insider confirms that the versatile actor was totally committed to the portrayal of his character in the film and worked out twice a day, accommodating readings for Fanney Khan, between workouts. A close source says, “Anil will be seen essaying the role of a common man with a passion for music in the film. To appear leaner for the character, he had to adopt methods other than a regular gym routine for losing weight, as he was nursing an ankle injury at the time. That’s why, he opted to go off salt and sugar.”
