Mumbai: TV actor Mrunal Jain is leaving no stone unturned to give his best to his show ‘Hitler Didi’, even if it requires him to stay away from salt and water.

According to insiders, Mrunal deprived himself of salt and water for some time to shoot for a scene where his character is shown working out.

"My character is frustrated at not getting his way and releases his pent up anger through boxing. Otherwise, he is a controlled person with a tight leash on his emotions. But this scene is like a turning point for him where he vents his fury. It will be a raw, unadulterated, passionate scene," said Mrunal, who plays Sameer Diwan in Zee TV`s show.

"When you deprive your body of food and water and work out, it turns red. I survived on three protein and granola bars and had just 300ml of water in 12 hours. The intensity needed for the scene was not just physical but heartfelt too," he added.
