Bollywood Bhaijan Salman Khan, who had put on weight for his role of a wrestler in his last movie "Sultan", says the physical transformation from fat-to-fit was a painful action.
In the movie, the "Kick" actor character Sultan was seen ageing from a young Haryana wrestler to an older man, for which he had to gain many kilos.
"There is a lot of pain in undergoing physical transformation. I have been training for Tiger Zinda Hai and there is another film that I am training - it's a dance (referring to Remo D'Souza film). For Sultan, I was 96 kgs. I have shed 18-20 kgs," Salman Khan told media last night.
The "Bajrangi Bhaijan" actor was speaking at the Zee Cine Awards ceremony held here last night.
The 51-year-old actor will be next feature in "Tubelight", set to release in June 2017.
