Here’s why Saqib Saleem let go off his six-pack physique


Post Race 3, Saqib Saleem is set to surprise the audience and his fans with his next offering, Rangbaaz, a ZEE5 Original web series, in which he’ll portray an interesting character of a notorious Uttar Pradesh-based gangster. Rangbaaz, to be aired on ZEE5, will see Saqib get into the garb of a gangster for the first time sporting a different ‘moustache’ look. Interestingly, the actor who flaunted his cool, six-pack abs in Race 3, had to let go off his muscular physique for Rangbaaz. A source informs, “Since Saqib plays a gangster who existed in the late 90s, he was required to sport a real look. He cannot flaunt his six-pack abs as there was no concept of a well-defined body then. Considering so, Saqib lost all the muscles he had built for his character in Race 3 to look his part.” “Being a method actor, Saqib believes in walking the extra mile for his characters. If he worked hard to build six-pack for Race 3, he lost it all for his role in the web series,” the source adds. Saqib says, “In the late 90’s, there was no concept of a perfect body shape, forget about six packs. So, I had to lose all the muscles and gain little fat to look more real.”
