Suniel helps Chichi shed flab


Govinda lost eight kilograms while in Bangkok thanks to Suniel Shetty, who is known not only to be fiercely health conscious from long before physical fitness became a fad but also to make his colleagues lose weight at the drop of flab.

“I’ve already lost eight kg, thanks to Suniel who put me on a fat-free no-oil diet while we were shooting in Bangkok,” said Govinda returning from the shooting of Loot in Bangkok.

The film is produced by Suniel and also stars Mithin Chakrbaroty’s son Mimoh.

“And if you think that’s a miracle, young Mimoh Chakrbaroty, lost 18 kg in Bangkok because of Suniel,” Govinda said.

Govinda elaborates on his do-or-diet regime in Bangkok saying, “The food was specially prepared by Suniel’s cousin. We were not allowed any carbohydrates for dinner at all. I quickly began to feel lighter and healthier, so much so that I did the unthinkable.”

Govinda agreed to perform an intricate heart-in-the-mouth action scene.

“It was a chase sequence where we had to climb down from the 20th floor to the 17th with a rope. I never thought I’d have the courage or the physique to do it. It was Suniel who provided the inspiration. He took the initiative and I took the plunge after him. It was risky no doubt. I’ve never done anything like this in my life.” — HNS
