After ‘Kumkum Bhagya’, Shabir Ahluwalia is now playing the lead role in Zee TV’s other show ‘Pyaar Ka Pehla Naam Radha Mohan’. The actor has undergone a physical transformation and has lost a significant amount of weight for the role.
‘Pyaar Ka Pehla Naam Radha Mohan’ is a mature love story based in Vrindavan. The actor, who became immensely popular as Abhi from ‘Kumkum Bhagya’, is playing the role of Mohan, a man who was once a very easy-going charmer and is now intense and gloomy. Neeharika Roy will be playing Radha who will help Mohan gain his older self.
Shabir revealed that he lost 14 kg in the last few months for his appearance on the show.
The actor told Etimes, “The transformation from Abhi to Mohan has been quite significant. In fact, it took me some time and effort to get out of my last character and embrace Mohan’s characteristics. Their looks are quite different too, so I had to lean down to look the part. I worked very hard in the gym over the past few months and lost around 14 kgs to take up Mohan’s charming avatar. I must add that portraying my character to the best of my ability was my biggest motivation. I even tweaked my body language to get into the character and after having worked hard to get into the skin of my character, I just hope that the audience will love Mohan as much as they loved Abhi.”
