In an awe-inspiring transformation, actor Kartik Aaryan has taken on the role of an athlete in Kabir Khan’s upcoming sports drama, “Chandu Champion.” 

Celebrated for his dedication and discipline, Aaryan received high praise from director Kabir Khan, who highlighted the actor’s incredible physical journey.

Kartik Aaryan’s body fat was initially at 39% when he was first approached for the role. Kabir Khan shared on Instagram the remarkable effort Aaryan put into achieving the physique required for an international-level athlete, a feat accomplished without the use of steroids. 

“The story of Chandu Champion is an incredibly inspiring true story, but the journey that Kartik went through to become this champion is no less inspiring,” Khan wrote. “I met him when he had put on weight for a role. 

He had 39 percent body fat. I told him that he had to portray an international-level multi-disciplinary sportsperson. He just smiled and said, ‘I will do it, Sir.’ A year and a half later, with no use of steroids – something that he was adamant about – we took this photo on set. Body fat 7 percent! I’m proud of you, Kartik Aaryan.”

Kartik Aaryan, clearly moved by the acknowledgment, reshared Kabir Khan’s post, expressing his gratitude. “My biggest reward. Thank you Kabir Khan Sir for being the biggest motivator and being by my side on every step of this transformational journey,” he wrote.

On Wednesday, Kartik Aaryan further fueled excitement by sharing the film’s poster, captioning it, “Champion Aa Raha Hai (Champion is on his way). Super excited and proud to share the first poster of the most challenging and special film of my career. Chandu Champion.”

Directed by Kabir Khan, “Chandu Champion” is set to hit theaters on June 14. The film promises to be a compelling portrayal of a multi-disciplinary athlete’s journey, inspired by true events, with Kartik Aaryan’s transformation story adding an extra layer of authenticity and inspiration to the film.
