Alia Bhatt trained hard for a bikini shoot in ‘Shaandaar’

She last donned a two-piece in her debut movie ‘Student of the Year’, and Alia Bhatt will sport one again for her forthcoming movie ‘Shaandaar’. Buzz is that, the actress trained hard to have a perfect body for the bikini sequence.

According to Times of India, Vikas Bahl did not want her to flaunt any puppy fat and thus Alia took to the gym and after three months presented herself as a ‘little boy’ to the director. It was then that he asked her to get to some curves and the actress trained under celebrity trainer Yasmin Karachiwala.

Yasmin said, “Alia came to me last July and told me that she wanted to looking sizzling in a bikini for Shandaar. She was skinny but dedicated, refusing to eat anything but what had been recommended. And in three months she had the perfect body for the UK shoot, going from super-thin to gymnast body-thin.”

“She’s young, hyperactive and always ready to try something new. There are days when I have to throw her out of the gym and tell her to cheat on her diet,” she added.

‘Shaandaar’ will see Alia romancing Shahid Kapoor. The two stars will play insomniacs in the film, which is touted to be India’s first destination wedding movie. It will hit the screens on September 4.
