Unbelievable! How dance guru Ganesh Acharya lost 85 kilos in 1.5 years!
"Logon ne Ganesh Acharya ko mota hi dekha hai , that’s why I wanted to change the image."
Everyone remembers Ganesh Acharya as the man who could dance like lightning despite his hefty frame and weight. Who can forget the song Khullam Khulla Pyaar Karein from the film Road where he gave the svelte Koena Mitra a run for her money by his super moves.
However, two years back the ace choreographer made a resolve to shed all that extra weight and challenge himself to do the unthinkable. Yes, that’s right! He decided to lose that extra weight which was somewhere or the other affecting his dance.
“I danced even when I had so much weight, but the difference between then and now is that the energy in my dance has doubled,” he says.
“Karna hi tha (I had to do this)! Ek soch thi ki (I had this determination that) I just have to do this. Logon ne Ganesh Acharya ko mota hi dekha hai (people have only seen the fat Ganesh Acharya), that’s why I wanted to change the image. I have lost almost 85kg now,” he says.
But it was no mean feat. It took Acharya a year and a half to lose 85 kgs.
“It was tough for me. I have been working on my body for the past one-and-a-half years. I had even put on 30-40kg for my film Hey Bro (2015), and my weight had then touched 200kg. Ab vahi weight utaar raha hoon (I am shedding that weight now),” he says in an interview to The Hindustan Times.
But that’s not it. Acharya now plans to share the secret of his weight loss with his fans and help other people who want to be fit and healthy.
“I’m soon going to launch a video on YouTube that will showcase the journey of how I transformed my body,” he shares.
That’s indeed a really noble thing to do. Kudos!
