Actor Sushant Singh Rajput is ready for summer.

For his movie M.S. Dhoni: The Untold Story, the Indian film and television star bulked up to play former Indian national cricket team captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni. But once he was finished shooting Rajput got right back to work in the gym—and he started chiseling.

The actor needed to get lean for two new films: Romeo Akbar Walter, a thriller in which Rajput plays a spy, and Drive, an action movie in which he’s playing a getaway driver who gets involved with local mobsters. (Sound familiar, Ryan Gosling?)

To drop his extra weight, Rajput worked alongside trainer Samee Ahmed, and saw some impressive results. Just like fellow Bollywood stars Aamir Khan, Ajith Kumar, Kunal Kapoor, and Karan Patel, Rajput forged his muscular (but bulky) body to a ripped and cut physique with chiseled pecs, a rock-hard six-pack, and a solid abdominal “V” to show off:

We all need three Important things to achieve what we desire in life – Discipline, hard work and, before everything, commitment. It was Sushant's character that got him of bed at 5 am in the morning, his commitment that moved us into action for our daily workout, discipline that enabled him to follow through a fit and healthy lifestyle. Sleep for 5 hours, train insane for 2 hours, Long hectic 14-15 hours of shooting followed by IPL dance rehearsal for 2 hours. @sushantsinghrajput Followed his Passion, prepared himself to work hard and sacrificed his comfort zone because he doesn't limit his dreams. @sushantsinghrajput Rocked with his performance at IPL 2017 Mumbai's Opening Ceremony @sushantsinghrajput 8 week's transformation #fitnessmotivation #fitlifestyle #dedicated #hardworking #doer #aesthetic #shredded #cleaneating #inspiration #bodylike #GreekGod #sushantsinghrajput #Enjoy #traininghim
