Fardeen Khan has finally made a comeback in movies, after 14 long years. The actor is seen in Sanjay Leela Bhansali's Heeramandi. The film, out on Netflix, also stars Tara Shah as the male lead. Before making his comeback, Fardeen made a massive transformation. The actor went from flab to fab, all in front of the cameras. The actor has now spoken about what helped him make the transformation.

Fardeen jokes it is genetic

When asked how is he ageing in reverse, Fardeen told ETimes that it is genetics. “Mother, father, thank them,” he said laughing. Fardeen then spoke about how he made some lifestyle changes and is looking after his son (which helps with the transformation).
