What He Did: Completely transformed his body and bulked up.
Why He Did It: For his starring role in Marvel’s Eternals.
His Workout: Nanjiani worked with trainer Grant Roberts, as well as trainer and nutritionist David Higgins “almost every day” once filming on Eternals began. Roberts put Nanjiani on a “360-degree plan” that included physical training, nutrition, and recovery, among other techniques. The trainer spoke about his work with Nanjiani in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter.
Kumail Says: On Instagram: “I never thought I’d be one of those people who would post a thirsty shirtless, but I’ve worked way too hard for way too long so here we are. You either die a hero, or you live long enough to see yourself become the villain. I found out a year ago I was going to be in Marvel’s Eternals and decided I wanted to transform how I looked. I would not have been able to do this if I didn’t have a full year with the best trainers and nutritionists paid for by the biggest studio in the world. I’m glad I look like this, but I also understand why I never did before. It would have been impossible without these resources and time. So big thanks to @grantrobertsfit who started working with me at the beginning of the year and made me understand true physical pain for months and months. Then, once we started shooting, a massive thanks to @davidhigginslondon and his team (@ellispartridge, @thebeardypt, @tomcheesemanfitness) for training me almost every day and making me strong, limber and injury free.”
