Arjun Kapoor, who was last seen in India’s Most Wanted recently opened up on his struggles with obesity and called it a “tough journey” that he navigated right from childhood.

The Ishaqzaade actor took to Instagram to share his workout pictures and urged people battling with weight issues to keep working hard to achieve their goal. “It’s been a tough journey for me ever since I was a kid when it comes to my battle with obesity. Everyone has their own struggles I have had and continue to have mine,” his caption read.

“But the whole point of life is that we fall, we get back up and try again. Efforts will pay off eventually if not today then in a week month or even a year,” Arjun wrote. The actor recalled how at the age of 20 he vowed to never give up for three years that took him to lose 50 kgs.
