In Bollywood, we often see actors putting on weight and losing it. Kareena Kapoor, Sonam Kapoor, Arjun Kapoor, Parineeti Chopra, Hritik Roshan, Alia Bhatt and Sonakshi Sinha who have reached stardom have their own transformation stories to narrate. We do have some actors in Tollywood too who have worked hard to slim down their bodies. For those in the showbiz, it is a challenge to find time to workout daily. But mana stars have proved that nothing is impossible and where there is a will, there certainly is a way.... Let's check out some of them.
Jr NTR is the one of the actors who lost many kilos for his blockbuster hit Yamadonga which was directed by SS Rajamouli. When the director asked the actor to shed some kilos, immediately, the actor agreed and shocked everyone with his new look.

IN RRR, director SS Rajamouli met NTR's gym trainer Lloyd Stevens to discuss his expectations from the actor for the film.
