Shahid Kapoor Works with Chef Kelvin Cheung to Develop Body Like a Warrior for Bollywood Film Padmavati



To achieve a warrior like body for essaying the role of Raja Ratan Singh in Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s upcoming Bollywood film Padmavati, Shahid Kapoor worked closely with celebrated chef Kelvin Cheung, head chef at Bastian and former chef at Ellipsis to customize his meals.

Shahid got the Canadian chef on board to chalk out his meal plans, which change with his workouts and body requirements. The meals that are completely vegetarian are customized to make it wholesome, healthy and delicious.

Shahid Kapoor has been on a special diet which comprises three meals and two snack packs. The diet involves a lot of greens, high protein grains and legumes and healthy carbohydrates. Shahid’s diet also majorly comprises a lot of Asian style of cooking, given that he is completely off salt and the spices used in Asian cuisine give the meal a certain flavour despite the absence of salt.


Shahid’s indulgences consisted of small treats, sweet nuggets made of coconut milk as he was not allowed to consume any artificial sugar. A bowl of cut mangoes was the summer indulgence for the star.

Shahid is a living example of the fact that one can get such a fine, chiselled body even by consuming vegetarian food.
