Mumbai: Having charmed the audiences with his acting skills on shows like Mahabharat (Star Plus), Basera (NDTVImagine), Shobha Somnath Ki (Zee TV), Ghar Aaja Pardesi(Sahara One) and Kumkum Bhagya (Zee TV), the handsome Ankit Mohan paved his way into the Bollywood industry with his debut film Mausam. And now, Ankit seems to be progressing in his Bollywood career as the lad is all set to amaze the audiences on the silver screen!
Our source revels, “Ankit is doing a movie with actor turned director Prabhat Bhattacharya. Since the film is based on football, ankit worked on himself in gym as well as on ground. He would be seen as John, the captain of a football team. The character is very different and to keep up nitigrities he has been practising football. Anupam Kher would be essaying the role of coach in the film. The story of the film is very gripping with lots of twist and turns and carries a beautiful moral.”
When we got in touch with Ankit, he confirmed and shared , “Yes, I am part of this film. When I met Prabhat for the meeting of his film initially he could not place me anywhere in his film since the story is about footballers and I was a little bulky that time. He mentioned that he is looking for more athletic physique to suit the character, But still he shared the broad story of his film. I immediately realised that I needed to change my look. A month later when I met him again he was surprised to see me moulding myself to fit in the role. So far I have lost 15 kgs for the film. It’s been 9 years that I have been into fitness which helped me achieve it. I am happy and looking forward for audience to accept me in the new look.”
