When it comes to preparing for a role, actors have to go through a variety of exercises to get into the character they are playing, and while some of the roles they are playing are easy, other times they can be difficult. An actor not only has to study his subject but also alter his appearance altogether, something which actor Arjun Kapoor has been doing while prepping for his next venture Panipat.

For the movie, which is a historical period drama, Arjun has been going through a number of changes where he has had to alter his looks. Now shooting for the next part of Panipat is about to take place in Jaipur, and from a picture he shared on his Instagram page, Arjun looked pensive. It appears he has been working out with weights for the battle scene.

He captioned the post as, “Time to prepare for battle, next schedule of Panipat in Jaipur from tomorrow. Time to get back into the zone!!! #panipatprep #trainingday”

Arjun had a few months back been spotted wearing a red sweatshirt with a hoodie, but what caught everyone’s attention was the black mask and dark sunglasses he wore to hide his looks completely. He really was keeping everything under wraps.
