Ganesh Acharya is one of the most famed choreographers in Bollywood. The choreographer has made countless stars dance to his tune, in a number of movies including Rang De Basanti (2005), PK (2014), Farhan Akhtar’s Bhaag Milkha Bhaag (2013), and Hrithik Roshan’s Agneepath (2012). After the choreographer conquered the world of dancing, the national award winner took on the mission of weight loss. The dancer who brushed the 200-kilo figure shed a jaw-dropping 85 kilos.
At one point when Ganesh Acharya weighed 200 kilos, he decided that something has to be done. He says, “It was tough for me. I have been working on my body for the past one-and-a-half years. I had even put on 30-40kg for my film Hey Bro (2015), and my weight had then touched 200kg. Ab vahi weight utaar raha hoon (I am shedding that weight now).”ALSO READ: Vivian Dsena’s Ex-Wife Vahbiz Dorabjee Is Dating Pankit Thakker?
He said how the need to reveal a different version of himself lead to the motivation to change, “Karna hi tha (I had to do this)! Ek soch thi ki (I had a determination) I just have to do this. Logon ne Ganesh Acharya ko mota hi dekha hai (people have only seen the fat Ganesh Acharya), that’s why I wanted to change the image. I have lost almost 85kg now,” Check out his new, slimmer look in his Instagram posts below:

The choreographer who just turned director with a Marathi film also shared how he plans to release a workout video of his weight loss journey soon. He said, “I’m soon going to launch a video on YouTube that will showcase the journey of how I transformed my body.” His weight loss comes as a huge surprise to the audience.
