In Aditya Roy Kapur’s final Bollywood outing (Kalank), we noticed him as a sombre businessman, who’s making an attempt to run his dad’s newspaper whereas concurrently overcoming his personal private tragedies (yawn). But in Malang, one in all 2020’s most anticipated releases, Kapur’s turned a very new leaf, and boy are we impressed!
Yes, this new leaf refers to his jaw-dropping physique transformation and aggressive punches in Malang’s trailer. Watch it right here.
As reported by a every day, Kapur’s coach Sudarshan Amkar revealed that to construct his physique up, Kapur adopted a coaching routine comprising Yoga, 20-minute runs, Kalaripayattu and varied different types of martial arts. But coaching was only one facet of his transformation. The second facet was his diet, which was customised to the T by Pod Supply, a Mumbai-based meals service.
In an unique interview with GQ, Pod Supply’s co-owner, Anmol Singhal tells us that Kapur is one in all their oldest shoppers and is very particular about what he eats in a day, and it exhibits on his physique. “Adi (Aditya Roy Kapur) has been our client for the longest time, in fact he eats with us Monday through Sunday. We offer two services: the Pod Supply Model, where we send you fresh meals through the day and the Chef on Board Model, where a chef travels with you and cooks meals for you on set, at home, or wherever it is that you are. Adi’s opted for our Chef on Board Model, so we’ve been serving him food all through Malang’s schedule,” he says. “Our chefs even travelled with him to Mauritius and Goa, where a significant chunk of the film has been shot,” he provides.
Singhal additionally reveals that the model’s in-house diet staff deliberate Kapur’s diet as per the movie’s requirement and likewise shot-specific scenes, the place he’s compelled to appear like the Bollywood model of the Hulk. “After we found out what his character is going to be like in Malang, we started prepping a plan to bring down his body fat percentage from 17 per cent to 9-10 per cent, and just before the body shots (that you see in the trailer), we cut down salt from all his meals—7 days prior to the shoot so that there is no water retention in the body. However, we did serve him a good amount of sugar right before these shots so that his veins really pop on the camera,” he reveals.
“This was only something that was done specifically for this role, and the below diet plan was also made in accordance to his character in Malang. It is not sustainable in the long run, and is very different from what we serve him on a daily basis—the days when he’s not on set,” he explains.
Aditya Roy Kapur’s Diet Plan for Malang:
Breakfast: Rolled oats with eggs and topped with berries and nuts. “This carb, protein and antioxidant-rich breakfast was one of his favourite meals”, Singhal tells us.
Lunch: Indian home-style hen or lamb curry with multigrain chapatis, a vegetable preparation and a bowl of Pod Supply’s in-house Greek yogurt on the facet. “It acts as a great probiotic. Sometimes we’d also serve him a portion of brown rice or bread to ensure that he doesn’t get bored with his daily meals—that being said, each day’s preparation would be different from the previous day’s.”
Evening snack (additionally post-workout meal): “He’d engage in a cardio routine in the morning and in the evening, he’d head to the gym for a weight training session. Post this workout session, we’d serve him a walnut smoothie topped with a lot of berries and some dark chocolate. Along with the smoothie, we also served him a couple of devilled eggs stuffed with avocados to ensure that he’s meeting his daily protein requirement and also eating a fair amount of healthy fats. We also made a special nut butter and jam for him to keep any sudden hunger cravings at bay during a late night shoot. We make these as well as small goodie bags filled with healthy eating options such as lavash chips for all our clients so they don’t end up cheating on their diet.”
Dinner: “The last meal of the day has to aid both rest and recovery. So for this purpose we’d serve him red meat with a salad. Red meat is rich in creatine, which helps in building muscle and it also leaves you feeling fuller for a longer amount of time as red meat such as lamb or mutton takes a lot of time to digest.”
“We’d also ensured that he ate some form of cheat meals through the schedule in the form of desserts. He loves the avocado chocolate mousse our chefs make, so we’d slip it into his daily diet plan here and there,” Singhal says. “More importantly, Adi’s blessed with great metabolism, so his body reacted fabulously to this diet plan and a stringent workout routine for Malang,” he provides.
