Aamir is now likely to travel soon to the US for further physical training. Confirming this, a source from the film’s core team says, “Aamir now needs to get back into shape to play the younger version of his character. He won’t be able to do it peacefully in Mumbai. There will be constant media attention on his weight. So we are planning to get him back into shape in the US.”
Aamir will be accompanied by his physical trainer Rahul Bhatt. It’s not been decided when the actor takes off for the US. But according to sources he needs at least a month to lose all the flab. For a month Mahesh Bhatt’s son Rahul Bhatt was in Ludhiana for Aamir Khan’s physical training in Nitesh Tiwari’s Dangal. Now Rahul will accompany Aamir to the US. The invitation, says a source, came directly from Aamir. “He knows Rahul from the time he, Rahul, was a child hanging around on his dad Mahesh Bhatt Saab’s set of Dil Hai Ki Manta Nahin. Rahul grew up to one of the finest physical trainers in Mumbai. So when Aamir needed to develop two distinct body types for his wrestler’s character, he immediately thought of Rahul,” says a source close to Dangal. Rahul flew off to Ludhiana where he is stationed along with Aamir at the Radisson hotel where Aamir is stationed.
Says the source, “Aamir trained with Rahul for approximately 90 minutes every day. It was very intense training. The rigorous exercises involved Myofibril-based strength work-outs. Aamir wastraining with Rahul for his bulky look when his character is 45-years old. Now he needs to train to look 25. For both the looks, Rahul Bhatt has worked out a very strict and focused exercise regime for Aamir.
