Ajay Devgn wows with rippling muscles and a beefed up body in a still from Reliance Entertainment's under production action thriller 'Singham,' a remake of Tamil film of the same name.
The 42-year-old star is seen stripped to his vest in police uniform, sporting a thick mustache and aviators. His gorgeous honey golden hair add just the right touch of glamor to his beefy look.
Elaborating on Ajay's looks, helmer Rohit Shetty says:
"We've tried to achieve for Ajay the physique of a man who could bash up 20 people, if he so wished. It's not a six-pack look. Anyone can achieve that with injections and steroids. The manliness has to come through as he plays a tough cop who is from a village on the Maharastra-Goa border. It is a raw action film filled with hand to hand combat scenes, something one rarely gets to see in movies in this day and age of high gadgetry. Ajay's trainer Prashant Sawant is putting him through the paces."
Trainer Prashant explains how he managed to get the right look for his celeb client.
"We trained for three months. Ajay plays a very tough cop. He needed to look the part by losing weight, developing more cuts on his body and appear more lean and muscular. After training for an hour and half, I oversaw his diet and made sure he maintained a high-protein low-carb diet every three hours. I then had him do a rigorous combination of weights and circuit super sets that incorporated all techniques including pushups and pull-ups."
When quizzed about the time it took for Ajay to build his physique, "It didn't take him much time. Ajay has a great body and he has always been a fitness freak. It's not difficult for him to maintain it", quipped the trainer.
South actress Kajal Aggarwal plays Ajay's love interest in the film.
Singham is due in theaters on July 22.
