Choreographer Ganesh Acharya loses 85 kgs in 1.5 yrs


Ace choreographer Ganesh Acharya’s weight losing story is quite inspirational. The noted heavy weight Bollywood choreographer has lost 85kgs in one and a half years.

Ganesh is lighter and happier today, speaking about his drastic weight loss journey, Ganesh Acharya said, "It was tough for me. I have been working on my body for the past one-and-a-half years. I had even put on 30-40kg for my film Hey Bro (2015), and my weight had then touched 200kg. Ab vahi weight utaar raha hoon (I am shedding that weight now)," he told Hindustan Times.

So from where Ganesh got the motivation to lose weight.

The noted choreographer says that the motivation for his weight loss was to show people a different version of himself. “Karna hi tha (I had to do this)! Ek soch thi ki (I had this determination that) I just have to do this. Logon ne Ganesh Acharya ko mota hi dekha hai (people have only seen the fat Ganesh Acharya), that’s why I wanted to change the image. I have lost almost 85kg now,” he says.

Ganesh adds after losing weight he has already started to feel the difference. “I danced even when I had so much weight, but the difference between then and now is that the energy in my dance has doubled,” he says.

Ganesh turns director with a Marathi film and he is also planning to release a video about his weight loss soon. “I’m soon going to launch a video on YouTube that will showcase the journey of how I transformed my body,” he shares.
