Who made the best physical transformations for films?

Every actor needs to match up to some level of effort and dedication for their films, but there are a few who rise above the rest to immortalize their characters. More than glamour, acting requires skills and commitment towards the work. Many of our film stars are willing to do whatever it takes in order to literally transform into their characters. Stars like Ranveer Singh, Ranbir Kapoor, Rana Daggubati, Randeep Hooda, Priyanka Chopra, Bhumi Pednekar are some among them. Check out the B- Town star's best physical transformations for films.




Ranveer Singh



Man of the hour Ranveer Singh, who has been earning rave reviews for his performance as the barbaric Sultan Alauddin Khilji in Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s ‘Padmaavat’, stunned fans recently with his lean new appearance. For his role as the Sultan, the actor hit the gym hard to beef up for his part. However, his well-defined physique didn’t seem to match the requirements for his next role as a street rapper in Zoya Akhtar’s ‘Gully Boy’. According to reports, the star shed about 7 kilos and a lot of muscle mass to get into character for his next. Talk about having weight loss dilemmas, Ranveer managed to achieve this remarkable metamorphosis within just three weeks. 

Ranbir Kapoor


Ranbir Kapoor is one Bollywood hunk known for his lean physique apart from his charmingly good looks. The star who is often seen playing the lover boy in films, went all out to get under the skin of his character, actor Sanjay Dutt for the upcoming biopic. Reports had stated that the hunk didn’t just go through hours of footage to perfect his act as Dutt, but also bulked up and put on about 13 kgs for the part. Ranbir had the girls swooning over his buff new look that was first shared by his trainer and went on to spread across social media platforms like wildfire. Reports also claim that this new look is also for his superhero film 'Brahmastra', co-starring Alia Bhatt and Amitabh Bachchan.


Rana Daggubati



With a perfectly chiselled body, Rana Daggubati made being bad look so good in the blockbuster ‘Baahubali’ franchise. Playing the role of the tyrant Bhallaladeva, meant that the star had to ditch his lean physique for a meaner and muscular avatar. It had been reported that Rana underwent intense weight training to achieve his physique and the desired weight goal of 110 kilos. However, as his role required two very distinct looks – older and a young Bhallaladeva, Rana was required to lose the muscle mass for a more chiselled look in ‘Baahubali 2: The Conclusion’.

Randeep Hooda


Randeep Hooda’s transformation into an almost skeletal avatar for the biopic 'Sarbjit', directed by Omung Kumar, left fans stunned. The hunk went on a rigorous diet and lost a whopping 18 kgs in a period of just 28 days to get the perfect look for his director who wanted to “see his bones.”
While many actors in Bollywood don't want to tamper their health to such an extent, Randeep proved that he had no such qualms to transform into a starving man confined in a 4 ft x 4 ft prison cell.

Priyanka Chopra




While many other actresses in Bollywood prefer a leaner and toned physique even for their films, Priyanka Chopra proved she could rise to the challenge and bulk up for her role as boxer Mary Kom in the self-titled biopic. In order to match up to the physical attributes of the sportswoman, the actress underwent rigorous training and reportedly worked out for 5 hours every day in order to get into fighting form. The actress was also reportedly trained by Mary's coaches for three months and fought with real boxers. Post the film’s release, Priyanka was lauded for her efforts and the film went on to bag a National Award.

Bhumi Pednekar



While other actors in this list were busy pumping iron, actress Bhumi Pednekar packed on the pounds to play an overweight housewife in her film opposite Ayushmann Khurrana. Reports state that the beauty was determined to make a statement with her debut film, and did so by gaining around 20 kgs for her part, losing it and gaining it back again for a few re-shoots. The newbie proved she meant business when she tipped the scales and won hearts with her convincing portrayal of Sandhya.

  10. Wow, it's so amazing what actors and actresses will do for a role! I don't know if I would be able to dedicate myself to gaining or losing so much weight in such a short time for a film... I guess that's why I don't act! haha

  19. These are some extreme transformations! I had always found it absolutely ridiculous how actors have to go such extreme training and diets to look like the perfect body... so discriminatory in some way. But i guess, you don't want to see someone unfit on screen... ah, the cinema industry!

  25. These pictures does not look like the same people. This shows that they are truly dedicated to their craft. Randeep Hooda is really something. Going through all that in 28 days? I remember Christian Bale going through the same extreme weight loss for his portrayal in "The Machinist". Great job to this actors, though.
