TV star Ram Kapoor has trended this entire week after revealing his new, trim look on his Instagram account. Mr Kapoor, 45, has always been pear-shaped and it’s been part of his charm, helping propel him to stardom in serials like Kasamh Se and Bade Achhe Lagte Hain. His extreme transformation has taken him 30-odd kilos down from a reported 130 kilos. In two separate Instagram posts, Ram Kapoor unveiled his all-new, leaner self.
Naturally, his fans and friends were impressed (not everyone, though; some said the preferred the old Ram Kapoor). The actor’s colleagues from the TV world left comments on the Instagram post he shared yesterday: “You’re back to how you looked in Dhadkan,” wrote Kishwer Merchant, referencing a 2003 medical drama in which Ram Kapoor played a psychologist; Ronit Roy wrote, “Amazing dude. Finally, mere bhai. So happy; “This is an amazing achievement,” wrote Tanaz Irani.

How did he do it? Ram Kapoor told SpotboyE that he works out twice a day, watches what he eats and doesn’t eat at all for a period of 16 hours. “As soon as I wake up in the morning, I do an hour of weight-lifting on an empty stomach. And, at night just before I sleep, I do cardio. I eat limited food during a period of eight hours. For the rest of the 16 hours, I don’t eat anything at all,” Mr Kapoor said. That sounds like hard work and at least one tweet raised a concern:
On the work front, Shabana Azmi was last seen in Deepa Mehta-directed web-series Leila. She will next share screen space with Delhi Crimes actress Shefali Shah for a web-series produced by Vipul Shah. In the upcoming series, Shefali will be seen playing the role of a doctor, while Shabana Azmi will be the owner of the hospital.
