Talking about her transformation and her fitness coach, Kangana Ranaut said, “We have been working together for a few years now, we have done many transformations together, Cannes look, ‘Panga’, ‘Thalaivi’ and now ‘Dhaakad’. My characters are very demanding which he understands well and makes the plan according to the requirement of the script. He knows when to exert and when to hold back and of course, never fails to get results.”

Talking about the journey of ‘Dhaakad’, Celebrity fitness expert, Yogesh Bhateja, said, “It has always been a roller coaster ride, as every character had its own specifications whether it was about looking strong and sturdy in ‘Panga’, getting size zero figure for Cannes, gaining 20kgs for ‘Thalaivi’ or dropping all those extra Kgs and getting sharp and masculine for ‘Dhaakad’. Kangana is very focused, always ready to learn new exercises, a fast learner and fun to train with!! For Dhaakad we got very little time for prep but I must say that she took it very sportingly and with full dedication though I gave her a very hard time in the toughest fitness regime, she has been enthusiastically performing, I planned the whole routine by keeping the movie perspective in mind as it has got lot of action sequences so I incorporated multiple forms of training exercises like plyometrics, weight training, Animal flow and Yoga asanas in it to make her more functionally efficient and injury-free.”
