 To get ready for his movie called Aadujeevitham, actor Prithviraj Sukumaran had to change his body in a big way. This meant going without food for long periods of time, which was very hard on him.

In a recent interview, Prithviraj told the Hindustan Times how much this hurt his body. He said that he wouldn't eat anything for as long as 3 days at a time! He said the only things he would have were water and black coffee.

Prithviraj explained that this wasn't just hard on his body, but also on his mind. He said that people are naturally able to go without food for 2 or 3 days, but by the second day, your brain really wants you to eat. That's when things get tough!

"The idea was that I looked like somebody who does not have access to enough food, and was starving most of the time," Prithviraj explained.

He added, "The only way I could do that is to actually adopt that process, which means that my transformation was almost entirely based on fasting. At times, I used to fast for up to 72 hours. I would drink water and black coffee, but nothing else."

The actor emphasised that the challenge extended beyond the physical realm, impacting him mentally as well. "Humans are equipped to do two to three days of fasting. When you wake up the second day, your mind is telling you to just eat. And that is when the real challenge kicks in," he said.

The reason Prithviraj was willing to go through all this pain is because the movie is a serious story. It's about a young man from Kerala, a state in India, who gets tricked into working as a shepherd in the desert of the Middle East. Over the last 10 years, Prithviraj has been very dedicated to making this movie and has even done hard physical labor to really understand what his character would go through.

Lots of other actors in India have also changed their bodies a lot for movie roles, like Randeep Hooda and Fawad Khan. But just like with Prithviraj, these big changes can be dangerous for your health, as both Hooda and Khan have said.

In an interview, Hooda warned people about the dangers of losing weight too quickly. He said that it hurt his body a lot, especially because he had to film the movie for a long time. Khan also talked about how quickly losing weight can be bad for you. He said that he even had to go to the hospital because of problems with his kidneys!

These stories show how much actors are willing to sacrifice for their art. But they are also a reminder that it's important to stay healthy, even when you're working hard in the movie business.
