Actors and actresses these days going through body transformation for their projects is a common thing now. From the likes of Hamza Ali Abbasi and Fawad Khan going through massive transformations, many actors feel the need to fit into their roles in order to give their best.
Joining the clan of actors who go through transformation is Bilal Ashraf. After 18 stitches in the head and several broken bones, Bilal reveals that getting ready for Yalghaar was one of the toughest things he’s ever had to do.
Speaking to Instep, Bilal said, “The most challenging thing for me with Yalghaar was staying fit. I had to bring myself down to 8 percent body fat. I trained with the SSG commandos. I fired live weapons, bombs, rockets. You name it and we’ve done it. I had to jump out of a helicopter. I don’t think anyone in Pakistan has ever done that. It’s taken a lot out of me but I’m very, very proud to be standing at this platform because I share screen space with some of our legends like Shaan Shahid, Humayun Saeed, Ayub Khoso and Adnan Siddiqui. I think Hassan Rana has done a fantastic job in bringing all these actors together for Pakistan,”
