Actor Madhavan who is busy promoting his upcoming Tamil/Hindi bilingual ‘Irudhi Suttru’ revealed in an interview how he worked out to get his well toned physique which he sports for the film.
R. Madhavan says he built biceps which came close to the biceps’ size of Hollywood star Arnold Schwarzenegger. Actor R. Madhavan went to the US and worked out extensively to prepare for his role in the forthcoming film with 18.5 inches biceps compared himself to Hollywood superstar Arnold Schwarzenegger who had 20 inches biceps in his debut film.
“I learned different ways of working out. I learned a lot about my body. Let me just say that Arnold Schwarzenegger had 20-inch biceps when he did his first film, and when I did ‘Saala Khadoos’, being a vegetarian I managed 18 and half inches,” said Madhavan.
Asked why he went to the US for training? he replied: “Because had I been here, I would’ve just eaten dahi chawal and puri bhaji. I went there because you need to put yourself into a mental state before you get the physical state right. I first learned boxing when I went there.”
He added that he is able to build his body through a hard work out regime. The trailer is evidence for the great dedication and commitment of the ever charming Madhavan for the role of a boxer in ‘Irudhi Suttru’.
