A few days ago, a video surfaced online that claimed that Aamir Khan's body transformation in Dangal couldn't possibly have achieved without the use of steroids.
In the video, fitness expert Ranveer Ahllabadia said that such a transformation is possible only if you have really 'good genetics' and that at the age of 51, it was almost impossible for Aamir to pull off the feat without taking certain supplements.
The video quickly went viral, garnering over a million views, with many questioning Aamir's fitness regimes. Did he take steroids for the role?
Now, in an interview with The Quint, Rahul Bhat, who was Aamir's trainer on the film, has contested those claims.
He says that Aamir is a 'genetically advance man', is disciplined and hardworking, all of which contributed to his fat-to-fit transformation in record time.
He says, "Aamir didn't rely on shortcuts or compromises and if you do the same, these results are very much achievable."
He added that the superstar has been working out extensively since the past decade and is quite diligent in his approach.
"What most people don't realise is that if you are disciplined enough and take your supplements -- multivitamins, protein, and creatine, you don't have to go the chemical way," he said, countering Ranveer's claims of Aamir fast-forwarding his fitness process with the help of steroids.
Rahul also called Ranveer an 'armchair academic' and quite sharply contested his claims at every step, reaffirming the fact that Khan indeed achieved the body with 'consistency, discipline, patience, hard work and the right diet."
Well, the court is still open for debate.
