In one of his interviews, he revealed, “After having a big meal, I would sit in front of the television with chips, snacks, and ice-cream. I was very lazy and would hardly go out or play any sports. But one day I decided that I had to lose weight. That was when I was around 16. I started going to the gym and at one point, I even managed to lose 20 kilos, but unfortunately put it back all over again! I could never lose weight consistently, which was very disheartening”.
Luck smiled on him and he got an offer for the show ‘ Biggest Loser Jeetega’. It was a show where participants would be shown losing weight, almost live. This show was aired on ‘Sahara One’ during 2007. The participants were required to do three rounds of vigorous cardio sessions and allowed to eat five adequate, lean and saltless meals. This worked for him and he left the show with sixty kg less weight and came down to 82 from earlier 140 Kgs.
