"Ishaan had 12 days to shed 8kgs. He took that piece of input from his mentor and director and literally just went to town with his mission to be a lean mean machine for Beyond The Clouds," said his spokesperson.

"He changed his entire workout regime. His focus was largely on sprints and cycling — strict and disciplined regime to ensure he made it happen," the spokesperson added.

Khatter is one of the most awaited newcomers.
