The actor shared a photograph of himself sweating it out at the gym and spoke about his tough battle against obesity. “It’s 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...” he wrote.
Arjun also revealed how it took him three years to lose 50 kilos as an overweight 20-year-old and tweeted about the same, "I vowed never to give up in the three years it took me to lose 50 kilos 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've got to keep at it and one day you will reap the benefits... we all have got to keep the faith and keep at it cause what we do today will echo in time and reflect within us eventually."
