The film will see Jammwal team up with actor Vikas Verma, who was last seen in a negative role in David Dhawan’s recently released Coolie No 1 (2020). He played the character essayed by the late Mahesh Anand in the original film.
In the Varun Dhawan-starrer, Verma had to put on 20 kilos to look the part. “It was David Dhawanji’s brief to me that his villain had to look bulky and slightly huge to justify the character. I barely had a month to work on my body,” said Verma in a statement.
But Verma had to lose all that weight kilos for Sanak and he has been training hard to get in shape. “My next [project] is a full-on action film and for that, I have to look and feel fit in order to do all the action sequences. I have been going to the gym regularly. My trainer and my nutritionist have put me on a strict diet,” said Verma.
