To get fitter for his role, Sanjay Dutt has opted for meals that don't have much carbs and fats, and is consuming food rich in protein like chicken, salads, and fish. The actor will be wearing heavy costumes for which he's making sure that he is eating right, followed by a rigorous workout routine on the sets. To prep up for the role of the robust Afghan king, the actor had previously undergone costume, hair and makeup trials, and his bald look in several social events is already receiving immense attention from the audience. 

The actor, who will be playing versatile roles in each of his upcoming films, is doing every possible thing to get the nuances and mannerisms of his roles right. While it is a welcome challenge for Sanjay Dutt to do justice to every role he plays, it's difficult for the actor to maintain the desired physical appearance to slip into specific characters.
