Just when the internet is busy doing the 10-year challenge, here we have Shahid Kapoor’s lovely wife Mira Kapoor talking about the 16-year challenge. Taking the challenge, Mira shared a fan-made collage of Shahid from Ishq Vishq (16 years back) comparing his recent look for his next, Kabir Singh. Looking at the picture, it’s amazing to see how Shahid still looks almost the same and there’s hardly any difference between his 16-year-old and recent self.
Mira captioned the picture as, “16-year challenge”

Talking about his physical transformation for his role in Kabir Singh, Shahid had earlier said, “I wanted to look boyish for the younger portions to play a medical student. I didn’t want a perfect body; one that was manicured or chiselled because that’s not how college-going boys look. Seventy-five per cent of what you eat depends on your diet. I don’t drink alcohol and am a vegetarian. Generally, I live a healthy lifestyle. To lose weight, I needed to severely cut the calories I consumed, and train harder. Even though we were training, the look was achieved more via the diet; not so much in the gym. We had two months to lose weight. I didn’t want to rush into anything since that is not healthy”,
Speaking of his upcoming film, Kabir Sing is the official Hindi remake of Telugu blockbuster, Arjun Reddy. Directed by Sandeep Reddy Vanga, the film hits the screens on June 21.
