Faster Fene became one of the more successful Marathi films of last year and Amey Wagh, who played the titular role, won accolades for his performance.
Naturally, audiences have been curious to know what he is working on next. And now it appears that the actor is busy piling on the pounds.
While the name of the film and other details remain under wraps, we can confirm that Wagh has started the process of gaining weight under the guidance of celebrity fitness trainer Shailesh Parulekar.
“By doing regular exercise and taking proper diet, he is on his way to put on some weight,” said an official statement from the makers of the film.
Interestingly, Wagh, already a slim actor, had had to lose weight to play Banesh Fene in his previous film.
Parulekar had helped stars Sai Tamhankar and Priya Bapat gain weight for Sachin Kundalkar’s Vazandar (2016), a film in which both actresses had to look, shall we say, healthier than they naturally are.
He had also trained Bapat for Aamhi Doghi (2018), in which her character grows from schoolgirl to young woman in the course of the film.
