JP Dutta’s war drama Paltan released last Friday and has received decent reviews from the movie buffs. The film features Arjun Rampal, Sonu Sood, Gurmeet Choudhary and Harshvardhan Rane as army officers from Natha Lu regiment. Looking at the promos and trailer, it looked that all the lead cast were an apt choice for the film, specifically considering their raw and rustic physique. But believe us, all lead stars had to go under extensive physical training to get that shape.
In an exclusive chat with us, Paltan team revealed how they went an extra mile to achieve the desired physique for the film. Arjun Rampal said, ” I Knew that this role is physically challenging for me but the script really got me excited. During the shoot, we used to train a lot to become thinner comparatively and give a raw look.” Talking about the same thing Sonu Sood said, “When you shoot in Leh and Ladakh, the conditions make you fitter to the next level. Minus 20, minus 30 temperature, hardly any oxygen to survive. You are getting sunburnt, so if you survive in these type of conditions, you feel like a soldier.”
