Anant Ambani weight loss: Salman Khan respects Anant's willpower

Anant Ambani, youngest son of Reliance Industries chairman Mukesh Ambani was recently praised by superstar Salman Khan. The 21-year-old Ambani scion who was obese due to medications, underwent a drastic weight loss session to shed 108 kilos in 18 months.

Salman lauded the youngster for his dedication and wrote on Twitter, “So happy to see Anant Ambani, lots of respect n sooo happy fr him. Takes a lot of willpower to loose 108kgs in 18mnths.” The actor also shared a selfie of him with Anant along with the post.

The ‘Dabangg’ Khan, who is known for his fit physique in tinsel town, has guided and inspired a lot of other people in the film industry to get a fit body, like Arjun Kapoor, Daisy Shah, Zarine Khan and others.

Anant was reportedly suffering from chronic asthma and the strong medications prescribed caused him to be obese. The young lad followed a strict diet and exercised rigorously for 5-6 hours a day. His regimen included a 21-km walk, yoga, weight training, functional training and high-intensity cardio exercises, and it has finally paid off.  

In fact, Salman’s father scriptwriter Salim Khan said that Anant looked “fitter” than the superstar himself. “Hats off Anant Ambani. You’ve inspired millions. The genes of Dhirubhai Ambani. Looking fitter than Salman,” he tweeted.

Salim Khan had joined the micro-blogging site late last month and Salman had welcomed his father by posting, “Luv u dad, wlcm to twitter @luvsalimkhan.”

Meanwhile, Salman is prepping up for his upcoming film ‘Sultan’.
