Mumbai: Filming for his most ambitious release ‘Ra.One’, SRK looks skinny and underweight. The actor, who once stunned all with his six-pack avatar in Farah Khan’s ‘Om Shanti Om’ seems to be losing weight.
Recently, while talking to a news daily on his scrawny frame, SRK rued, “Yes, I have lost a lot of weight. I need to put some weight on…kids (Aryan and Suhana) are thinking I am a 90 pound pushover weakling. I can’t be an under-nourished superhero, can I?”
When enquired about his sudden makeover, SRK said, “It’s because I had been wearing a superhero suit for ‘Ra.One’. The suit is made of silicon and styrofoam and rubber and, after wearing that suit for eight to nine hours daily, you tend to lose weight.”
Speaking on his body-suit in ‘Ra.One’, the actor said that he sweats inside the suit and can’t eat properly during his stay in his superhero avatar.
“When I was shooting in Mumbai about a month ago, it was very hot even in the air-conditioned studio. It was steaming hot even when we shot in London. So you can imagine my condition inside the suit. I wouldn’t eat, as I had wires all around, and it’s very difficult to have a meal while in the costume,” said the star.
Apparently, SRK signed off on a lighter note saying, “Now that I have finished the shoot, Gauri has been feeding me lots of rice and chicken so I put on a few kilos. I will also start working out. My shirts have become loose, but I hope I still look sexy.”
