Apparently body sculpting is the new fitness mantra. Gone are the days when actors underwent rigorous training to flaunt six-pack or eight-pack abs. Aditya Roy Kapoor, who hasn’t beefed up even a bit, has taken a different route to show-off a well-toned physique in Fitoor. The actor opted for body sculpting which is the process used to tone one’s body muscles to perfection. An extremely exhausting process, the actor had to first work towards losing muscle mass and then reducing body fat. It took the actor months to get the right body type for his character in the film.
Aditya Roy Kapoor said, “I have been following this regime on and off for a year-and-a-half now. After filming some sequences, I let go a little bit and I had to lose weight all over again, which was quite frustrating. So I’ve learnt that this lifestyle has to be consistent.” (As said to the Indian Express)
When asked about the do’s and don’ts of body sculpting Aditya said, “Well, the dos are drink lots of water, get enough fibre and carbs as well, as they are important. The don’ts are don’t be too extreme with any diet, it can really end up harming your system and immunity. Also, one cheat meal is fine but keep it at one because if you do another then it’s a slippery slope.”
An adaptation of Charles Dickens’ classic novel Great Expectations, Fitoor tells the story of young Kashmiri boy Noor, his muse Firdaus and a mercurial Begum, through love lost and realised over the course of two generations. Thirteen-year-old Noor, an impressionable shikara boy living by the piers of Kashmir’s Dal Lake, is lured into the world of the Begum – the wealthiest woman in town.
Young Noor falls in love with the Begum’s daughter, Firdaus – a beautiful child who has been raised to break hearts. Suffering from a broken heart herself, the Begum finds her mark in Noor. Noor begins to obsess over Firdaus, someone who belongs to a world completely different from his. Seasons change and Noor leaves his hometown to move to the city of Delhi to build his career as an artist. He strives to be accepted into the sophisticated social circles that Firdaus is a part of in a quest to win her love, while the Begum plots retribution on their young and innocent love.
