Now before starting the shoot early next year in January, Vicky needs to embody himself into the role compelled.
For the training of this film, he has to undergo various things and had been asked to gain some kilos of muscles before he commences shoot for the film. The actor has recently begun rigorously working out for this film and also has a special diet and workout to follow.
Soon after, he will be meeting and spending time with some real-life army men and spend some good amount of time with them to understand each and every nuance possible of leading the life of an army man.
Also, he will be training under them so that he gets the right character and the portrayal is done in a very right way. This will be followed by training for martial arts for his action sequences and also ammunition training to perfect the role.
A source close to the actor says,
“Vicky is preparing rigorously for his role, he has been maintaining his diet and regularly going to the gym.”
When asked Vicky he said,
“I have three months for prep. I have to beef up and gain lean muscle as the aim is to not only build up the size but also strength. This includes functional, core and weight training. My diet is a combo of high carbs and high proteins for now. This will be followed by a month-long martial arts training and after that paramilitary training. The action includes hand combat and martial arts is a must for it. It also requires training for arms and ammunition.”
