Abhishek might be more excited about the venue for his wedding anniversary in Miami come April 20, but the makers of his forthcoming film, Dostana, are more xercised about making the Younger B lose some weight!
A unit hand currently in Miami for the shoot of Karan Johar's Dostana had this to say about Abhishek's heavyweight: "Priyanka Chopra, Abhishek Bachchan and John Abraham comprise the cast of the film and since the film's look is on the lines of Yash Raj's Neil-N-Nikki, it's a must for the cast to flaunt a perfect body!"
For all those who missed out on Neil-N-Nikki, the debutante actress Tanissha went through a stringent regimen and made to lose oodles of weight for the film. It was rather important as she was dressed in minimal clothes throughout!
Dostana will be Karan Johar's strike at comedy this time, a romantic comedy, and is pretty much on the lines of Neil-N-Nikki. Since Priyanka Chopra is a former beauty queen known for her perfect 10 body, and John a supermodel more famous for his six-packs than acting prowess, it is only Abhishek to look as slick and sexy as his costars. The Younger B is naturally finding it all the more tough going and is being nagged all the time to lose weight in order to keep up with his costars.
"It may be a romantic comedy but it has been shot quite sensuously! So it was essential that the cast looked good in minimal clothing. Unless you have a perfect body this is not possible. With John in the film too it makes Abhishek's excess weight all the more striking," added the unit hand.
A year of marriage with Ashi has made Abhi look prosperous and happily overweight. But it's Ash who has been keeping a tab on her happy hubby's diet so that he can get back into shape. Only, Ash needs to push Abhi a lot harder! On his part, Abhi could take a lesson from Ash's professionalism. She took to yoga for Dhoom 2 and stunned everyone with her Barbie body after a dramatic streamlining of her body weight after Guru! Lately, we have seen Kareena Kapoor getting into slick shape and could well serve as an inspiration for Abhishek. She may have had Tashan and Saif Ali Khan to do that for, but Abhi has John Abraham and Dostana, if not Ash, to worry about!
John had gifted Bipasha a treadmill on her birthday last year when he realised she had started gathering the kilos. So, on their first wedding anniversay, Ash could take Abhi's weight in hand as well!
