However, he said it is not easy to turn according to the character. Referring to his role of a dancer in his next film, Salman said, “You know how painful that is? Sultan was also painful. I had to lose 18 kilos of muscle. I am not into diets. I eat ghar ka khana. And I don’t eat for taste. As soon as I have got my proteins and carbs, I leave the table. So, to lose 18 kilos of muscle was the most difficult thing on the earth. But I have always believed that effortless hard work should be seen onscreen. And that’s what I have been doing from Wanted to Sultan.”
