From a director, to actor and an amazing choreographer, Ganesh Acharya has marked up a great journey since he was 10. He has choreographed many celebrities and made them dance on his fingers. All the Govinda dance songs have been choreographed by none other - Ganesh Acharya. He also has won the National Film Award for Best Choreography. He is now a big name in Bollywood and a self-made man who has mesmerized the entire world with his best party moves for generations.
But this time, he's not in news for his movies or dance. He's in it for bigger things--the latest pictures which he has been sharing on his Instagram page past one and a half year. Ganesh was always body-shamed and surprisingly, his weight never became a hurdle in his aspiring career.
And now, after all the fat-shaming, this national award winner recently underwent an amazing transformation and lost 85 kg in the past one and a half year. Before, his weight was 200 kg. In his recent photographs, he looks about half the size what we all have seen him latest in 'ABCD 2'. And that's only because he has lost a lot of weight.
When asked about it, Ganesh said that he has been working on his body for past one and a half years. He had to put on 30-40kg for his film 'Hey Bro (2015)'. His weight touched 200 kg then. Since then, he's trying to put off that gained weight.
The national award winner motivation to lose weight is almost common just like the normal ones. He wanted to show the different version of himself. He confessed about his secrets behind this weight loss while talking to Hindustan Times about this change and said, "Karna hi tha! Ek soch thi ki I just have to do this. Logon ne Ganesh Acharya ko mota hi dekha hai (I had to do this! I had thought that I just have to do this. People have only seen the fat Ganesh Acharya), that's why I wanted to change the image. I have lost almost 85kg now."
This definitely shows that he cares about what people say about him. As he's a big name in the industry, it matters. The media always notices small details of every celebrity. Probably, he was also the target of complexity that normal people go through.
Ganesh Acharya's weight loss has made lots of people in surprise or even shock. Ganesh Acharya himself is feeling much lighter and better than before. He feels that he has got more energy now than before. Now, he feels the difference after this weight loss. Ganesh also confessed that this journey of his to lose weight was tough and full of difficulties. Losing 85 kg in one and a half year was tough for him.
During this journey of his, he continuously kept updating his Instagram page (@ganeshacharyaa). He kept posting pictures of his working out in gym, during shoots, which tell about his journey of losing 85 kg. Ganesh feels more energized than before which also reflects in his dance and daily activities. Talking to HT, he said, "I danced even when I had so much weight, but the difference between then and now is that the energy in my dance has doubled."
He agreed that this journey of losing weight of 85 kg was tough and at one point also, he felt like giving up because his body was heavy and was difficult in moving much. But with the help of trainer and a little inspiration, he kept to his journey and did not give up.. This is such a great work of his and an inspiration for the upcoming generation.
