Kartik Aaryan is given credit for reviving the box office in the post-pandemic era with his film Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 also starring Tabu and Kiara Advani. Now, with his upcoming film Freddy, the actor is now prepared to create chaos on the OTT platform.

The ‘Pyar Ka Panchnama’ actor has already begun to win the audience's hearts with the first teaser of the movie. However, it was a challenge for Kartik to transform his body in order to fit the role of a new character. Aaryan's trainer recently talked about his commitment to taking on this task in an interview. To fit Freddy, the actor had to gain 14 kg.

Samir Jaura, a well-known fitness trainer who worked with Aaryan on his body transformation, has nothing but appreciation for the star. Kartik, who is naturally lean, went above and above to pack on the pounds, according to Jaura, who revealed this in an interview. “Kartik is someone with a genetically lean body. So, when he was required to gain around 14 kilos for Freddy, we knew it was going to be a task. But, his dedication is next level! He was able to achieve the look well in time, following disciplined routine workouts and the right diet plan."

He added, “Putting on kilos requires a well-supervised process, because it is not just simply the shredding of muscles or getting ripped. He has done a fantastic job and the look came perfectly for the film,” he was quoted as saying to the English daily.

The "Bhool Bhulaiyaa" actor admitted that he was so enthused about his part that he didn't have time to worry about having to put on weight. “Freddy has been one of the most interesting and surprising scripts that I have ever read. When I saw that I would also be required to gain weight for the role, among other preparations, I just wasn’t able to worry at that moment because I was so excited to play this character.” revealed the actor.

The teaser of Freddy which was released a few days ago proves that Kartik Aaryan is all set to amaze the crowd with the suspenseful thriller. Jawaani Jaaneman actress Alaya F also stars in the movie's lead role. 

Freddy, a film by Northern Lights Films, NH Studioz, and Balaji Telefilms, will be streaming on Disney+ Hotstar on December 2, 2022.
