Siddharth Malhotra loses the flab. He credits Karan Johar and Arjun Rampal as his inspiration
We Are Family director Siddharth Malhotra has knocked off 30 kilos thanks to Karan Johar and Arjun Rampal. The debutant duirector managed to lose the flab in six months and is still at it. By the time the movie,
which stars Kajol, Kareena Kapoor and Arjun, releases in September, he hopes to be in ship-shape.

Son of actor-producer Prem Kishen, Siddharth's daily regime includes gymming and a strict no-carb diet. While some Dharma directors also harbour acting inspirations, Sid doesn't. "I don't want to act. I want to feel
good and look good."
During the shoot of his film, an adaptation of the Hollywood flick Stepmom, Siddharth had Arjun telling him to lose weight. "Once filming ended, I decided that along with the movie's post production I too needed to do
something about my look."
It was Arjun who took him to a gym in February and introduced him to exercising. "My trainer Sunny puts me through the paces every day."
Mera role model
But Siddharth holds KJo as his role model. "He has been my inspiration to lose weight. I can now dress in what I want to wear and not head for the XXXL sections."
He adds, "I have lost all my baby fat. All these years of eating in a true Malhotra-Kapoor style weighed me down. But now I am determined to cut down even further."
