Kartik Aaryan Relishes Rasmalai After Year Of No-Sugar Diet

Kartik Aaryan, whose love for sweets is as unabashed as his on-screen talents, had been keeping his sudden weight loss under wraps for a long time now. Much to the surprise of the public and his fans, he seemed to be a lean, almost slimmer version of his former self for a while now. Giving himself a reason to celebrate the efforts of his labour recently, the actor was fed one of his favourite desserts – ras malai – by director Kabir Khan, with whom he had been shooting his upcoming film, Chandu Champion.

As part of getting into character, Kartik had been on a no-sugar diet for a year, as a way of maintaining his body to play the part. The ‘sweet’ moment, which took place at the wrap party of the film, was shared by him on social media where Kabir Khan spooned an entire morsel of the ras malai to feed Kartik. Although he appeared to be hesitant at first to take a bite, he managed to eat the whole thing as members of the crew applauded his dedication and restraint throughout the schedule.
