The actor had put on over 14 kg before he began shooting for his web series "Mirzapur". Dhulia required him to drop all the weight before the film was to hit the floor in March.

He was put on a keto diet, which is a no carbohydrates and sugar diet. His trainer also ensured he ran over five km a day to drop muscle and become lean.
