Director Ali Abbas Zafar tells us the secret behind Salman’s fit look in the film. He says, “Salman has really pushed himself for the part.

According to Ali, Salman started training extra hard at the gym even before the shoot of the film started. “Salman had trained, actually we should say he has killed himself for about 3 months at the gym before the shoot began. Altitude training is something that Salman had to do given the fact that we were shooting in the Alps and pulling off some daring stunts with him. During the shoot, be it the middle of a desert or on top of the snow-capped mountains ; Salman was training every day. He used to ride his cycle to the set and we all know it’s not easy to cycle in such harsh environments. He used to easily ride for more than 10 kilometres every-day to get to the set. He had worked out his own exercise regime given the limited options. Salman’s diet was incredible. His diet kept him light and agile and he paid minute attention to whatever he was eating. The cheat day came in the last schedule of Greece!” adds Ali.
