Kangana Ranaut is one of the most hard-working actresses we have in the industry. She has a couple of films in her kitty that have kept her busy. Kangana Ranaut is also juggling shoots due to the lockdown and hence, has to undergo a major physical transformation for the films that she has in the pipeline. The actress announced Dhaakad recently and also has Tejas, a patriotic film, directed by Sarvesh Mewara and produced by Ronnie Screwvala after that. Kangana had been shooting for Thalaivi which she wrapped up a couple of months ago. For the same, the actress has gained about 20 kg. BollywoodLife.com had got in touch with Kangana’s fitness trainer, Yogesh Bhateja, who opened up about the star-actress’ look for Tejas.
When asked about her training sessions and her transformation, Yogesh revealed, “She has lost a lot of weight. And in this film, you’ll see her in an extreme form, in a chiseled form. She is gaining her muscles back. This is gonna be her finest transformations till date.” Talking about being Kangana’s trainer, Yogesh added, “She was very supportive and when I was training her, I felt like I am training an athlete. She is very active, very strong, focused and determined.”
Last year, when Tejas was announced, Kangana Ranaut had expressed her sentiments saying, “Tejas is an exhilarating story where I have the privilege of playing an air force pilot. I am honoured to be a part of a film that celebrates these brave men & women in uniform who make immense sacrifices in the line of duty every day. Our film celebrates the armed forces and its heroes … Excited to take this journey with Sarvesh and Ronnie.”
Earlier, director Sarvesh had opened up on the film’s theme and why he signed Kangana Ranaut for this one. “My film is a reflection of the current sentiment in our country. We celebrate our armed forces and I hope to further evoke a spirit of patriotism and nationalism through my story telling. Kangana is a strong woman with a voice that resonates with the youth of this nation and I cannot wait to begin shooting with Kangana,” the director said, as reported Hindustan Times. Producer Ronnie Screwvala had also opened up on whether Tejas is a sequel to URI: The Surgical Strike. “We wanted to make a film on the army so Uri happened. Tejas is not a sequel to Uri, because that was a true story and this isn’t. But it is on the same lines and on the same scale,” he had said.
