The actor has bulked yet again to play a wrestler in his upcoming film 'Bol Bachchan' 
Ajay Devgn is going the Pehelwan way. The actor who plays a wrestler Prithviraj Raghuvanshi in the upcoming film ‘Bol Bachchan’ has built a body which will put a real pehelwan to shame.

Recently, the actor shocked the entire unit by lifting very heavy traditional akhada equipment for a particular scene!! The equipment known as the ‘ballam’ weighs around 25 kilos and is used by real pehelwans in traditional desi akhadas to train and work out. “For a particular scene, the actor was supposed to lift the 25 kilo ‘ballam’ like an actual pehelwan. Director Rohit Shetty had kept a lighter ‘ballam’ which weighed much lesser than the original one ready for the shot. However, Devgn insisted on using the real ‘ballam’ as he wanted to shot to look perfect. And with a strong and fit physique like his, he managed to lift the very heavy equipment and the superstar pulled the shot off with much ease and perfection in true Hulk style.

The 43-year-old actor has been undergoing a tough fitness routine designed by fitness trainer Prashant Sawant for the role. The actor undergoes rigorous gymming in the mornings and also works out just before the shoot to have the bulked up look. He has also been avoiding carbohydrates in his diet to be super fit for the role. “Ajay was super-fit post ‘Singham’, so it wasn’t very difficult for him to get the bulked up look,” says his trainer Prashant.

After the hard hitting Singham, Rohit Shetty wanted to do something light hearted and chose to do an action-comedy. The basic idea of the film is inspired from the 70s Hrishikesh Mukherjee film ‘Golmaal’.

Here's a sneak peek into the sets of the film
