Bollywood actor Arjun Kapoor, who is gearing up for his next film Panipat, has opened up about his struggles with obesity and has revealed that it has been a tough journey for him. Arjun on Tuesday took to his Instagram to share two photographs of himself in which he is seen working out. This is no secret that the actor had been very healthy since his childhood and had weighed more than 100 kilos before he stepped in Bollywood.
Arjun shared a picture of his ripped muscles and captioned it saying, "It has been a tough journey for me ever since I was a kid when it comes to my battle with obesity. Everyone has their own struggles. I have had and continue to have mine. But the whole point of life is that we fall, we get back up and try again. Efforts will pay off eventually if not today then in a week month or even a year." The 33-year-old actor says he started training in January and has managed to at least lay a foundation during his prep for his next "Panipat". "I vowed never to give up in the three years it took me to lose 50 kg when I was 20 years old and I sure as hell won't be giving up and letting go now... keeping the belief is key, you gotta keep at it and one day you will reap the benefits," he added.
