Varun Dhawan has been praised a lot for his beefed up physical transformation for ‘Kalank’. The actor has put in a lot of muscle for the role, and in one of the bull fighting scenes, he looks pretty much like Bhallaldeva from ‘Baahubali‘ . With so much praise flowing his way, lets find out what went into his prep for such an intense scene.

Varun recalls shooting the bull fight sequence in the film. He says, “It was a very excruciating sequence. It went on for 7-8 days. I moved into a hotel in Goregaon to save time and since I had suffered a knee injury and hamstring tear at the time, I had physios visiting me daily. But I still managed to continue with my twice-a-day training session at the hotel and in the make-shift gym on the set with my trainer Prashant Sawant.

A colosseum was built for the bull fight sequence in Mumbai and a portion was also shot in Kargil where despite the biting cold, he had to go bare-bodied. “The blood you see is my own because Zafar is the kind of guy who will come out of a crisis with a smirk,” says Varun for whom the challenge was going big on muscles and still looking sharp. The actor admits that Zafar is physically and mentally the toughest character he has played.

‘Kalank’ also stars Madhuri Dixit, Sonakshi Sinha, Alia Bhatt, Aditya Roy Kapur and Sanjay Dutt in pivotal roles. ‘Kalank’ is set to hit theatres on April 17.
