Shahid Kapoor ‘Kaminey’ phase

By the time Shahid already started experimenting with his looks, and knew it earlier that to survive in the industry he has to keep evolving. In 2009 ‘Kaminey’ we saw him in  a new avatar, the film didn’t do very well as the audience were still not ready to see him in a six packs abs fighting the goons and creating a bad boy image.

The struggling phase

After Kaminey his three back to back movies got flop on box office including ‘dil bole hadippa’, ‘Pathshala’ and chance pe dance, but that didn’t stop him from taking challenges. He returned back to his chocolate boy image with ‘milenge milenge’ and mausam but things didn’t work the way as planned.

Shahid Kapoor’s body transformation regime

Diet control

Shahid trained with Abbas Ali, a well-known celebrity trainer, and instead of eating animal meat for protein, he prefers to consume a vegetarian diet. His diet consists of a combination of protein and foods high in energy and amino acids. Beans, lentils, and spinach are among his favorite foods. Rice, dairy products, fresh fruits, and leafy green vegetables are other staples in his diet.

Workout regime

Shahid works out for up to two hours six days a week, doing planks, push-ups, weight lifting, cardio, and strength exercises. Shahid Kapoor places equal effort to enhance his posture  as he does on building his muscles.
