Farhan Akhtar and his crazy transformation in Bhaag Milkha Bhaag is something we were all inspired by when we watched the film. “I sport two looks in the film – the bulky soldier and the lead runner. I stand 5’9″ tall and weigh 66 kilos. To bulk up, I had to gain an additional eight kilos. And later, I lost 10 kilos to weigh 64kg for the second look” said the actor.
