Bollywood actress Kangana Ranaut credits her fitness coach Yogesh Bhateja for the transformation she acquires for various roles.

“We have been working together for a few years now, we have done many transformations together — the Cannes look, Panga, Thalaivi and now Dhaakad. My characters are very demanding, which he understands well and makes the plan according to the requirement of the script. He knows when to exert and when to hold back and, of course, never fails to get results,” Kangana said.

For her recent films, Kangana underwent drastic transformation from gaining weight for Thalaivi and shed the extra kilos for the action film Dhaakad.

Talking about the journey of Dhaakad, Bhateja said: “It has always been a roller coaster ride, as every character had its own specifications whether it was about looking strong and sturdy in Panga, getting size zero figure for Cannes, gaining 20 kilos for Thalaivi or dropping all those extra kilos and getting a sharp and masculine for Dhaakad. Kangana is very focused, always ready to learn new exercises, a fast learner and fun to train with.”

“For Dhaakad, we got very little time for prepare but I must say that she took it very sportingly and with full dedication though I gave her a very hard time in the toughest fitness regime,” he shared, adding: “She has been enthusiastically performing, I planned the whole routine by keeping the movie perspective in mind as it has got lot of action sequences so I incorporated multiple forms of training exercises like plyometrics, weight training, Animal flow and yoga asanas in it to make her more functionally efficient and injury-free.”

Thalaivi is a biopic of late Tamil politician J. Jayalalithaa. The bilingual film will trace the journey of the late leader from silver screen to politics. It is directed by AL Vijay, and also stars Arvind Swami, Prakash Raj, Madhoo and Bhagyashree.

Dhaakad is a spy thriller in which Kangana will play the role of Agent Agni, while Arjun Rampal will be seen as the antagonist in the film. Arjun’s character is named Rudraveer. The film is directed by Razneesh Razy Ghai, and slated to release on October 1, 2021.

Sanjay Leela Bhansali on the inception of his debut web series ‘Heeramandi’

As Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s upcoming magnum opus ‘Heeramandi’, his first-ever web series, is soon to be released, the ace director shares his inspiration for making the show.

Talking about its inception, Sanjay said, “I remember when I was a four-year-old kid and my father had taken me to a shoot and he said you sit here and I’ll meet my friends and come. I was in the studio and it seemed the most comfortable to me. More than a school, a playground, a cousin’s house, or anywhere in the world, I thought it was the most beautiful place. When I look back at 25 years, I think it’s very precious to me because you have to be blessed to be able to get a chance to make a film and that’s why I cling on to the studio because the studio floor is the most magical, that’s my temple, that’s my everything.”

He further added, “‘Heeramandi’ was something that my friend Moin Baig got to me as a 14-page story, 14 years ago and then finally when we presented it to Netflix, they loved it and they thought it had great potential to make a mega-series. It is very ambitious, it’s very big and vast. It tells you the story of courtesans. They kept music, poetry and dance and the art of living. It shows the politics within the brothels and how to emerge as the winner. It is a difficult one but I hope we come across with flying colours this time.”

The series will explore stories of courtesans and the hidden cultural reality of ‘Heeramandi’, a dazzling district, during pre-independent India. It’s a series about love, betrayal, succession and politics in the ‘kothas’.
