Alkhas Joseph, Who trained Vikram for his upcoming film, Ai says that the actor loves cycling in public places, wearing a mask. He shed almost 20kg for the movie as per the requirements of the character by doing bodyweight exercises, free waves, squats, functional movements and so on.
He says, "I don't advocate protein powders steroids or other 'short cut' approaches for actors to get that quintesential hunky look. I make them do different sets of exercises for two or three hours depending on the actor's agility. The best part of training actors is that their demands are time bound - hence, it's both challenging and fun training them."
