Choreographer Ganesh Acharya revealed at The Kapil Sharma Show that he lost 98 kg. The transformed Ganesh appeared in the show with Terence Lewis and Geeta Kapur.
In a promotional video for the episode, host Kapil Sharma noticed Ganesh’s weight loss and asked him about it. Ganesh said he lost almost 100 kilograms. Kapil a glumit: „Chote chote shehro me 46-46 kilo ke aadmi hotey hai. Do aadmi gayab kar diye apne (In small towns, you would find men weighing 46 kg. You made two men disappear.). “
In a 2017 interview with the Hindustan Times, Ganesh opened up about losing weight. “It was difficult for me. I’ve been working on my body for the last year and a half. I had even put on 30-40 kg for my film Hey Bro (2015), and my weight had then reached 200 kg. Ab vahi weight utaar raha hoon (now I lose this weight) “, he had said.
“Karna hi tha (I had to do it)! Ek soch thi ki (I had this thought that) I just have to do this. Logon ne Ganesh Acharya ko mota hi dekha hai (people only saw the fat Ganesh Acharya), that’s why I wanted to change the image. I have lost almost 85 kg now “, he added.

Ganesh is set to star in a film called Dehati Disco. He spoke to the Hindustan Times about the film in another interview and said: “This is a very different type of film. Unlike my comic roles, this is a very serious role, action and dance. I play a father who has a 10-year-old son. It is a dance film based on the Hindustani “kala” (art form). Ever since I also directed films, I use all those experiences in my role. “
As a choreographer, Ganesh has worked on new projects such as BellBottom, Laxmii, Coolie No 1, Bhuj and Toofan, by Akshay Kumar.
