Celebrities are looked upon as the epitome of good genes along with their Sculpted bodies and Highline figures. Such is entirely the case with Bollywood celebrities who went from fat to fit. What we fail to notice is that not every one of them was blessed with good genes and natural curves. Instead, it was the result of their consistent and splendid efforts to come into a shape which led them to be the fit celebrities who we adore today. From Alia Bhatt to Arjun Kapoor to Sonakshi Sinha, there’s an "n" number of Bollywood celebrities making their name on this list.
So if you’re bummed about being a chubby baby, you’re not alone. These gorgeous Bollywood celebrities made their way out of flab into a fab, so can you right?
Top Bollywood Celebrities Who Went From Fat to Fit
Now let’s take a walk down the memory lane and explore some of our favourite Bollywood celebrities who went from fat to fit:
1) Alia Bhatt
Young, bubbly and the most adorable in the celeb list, Alia was not always as fit and gorgeous as she appeared in her debut film ‘Student of the Year’. As soon as she realised she was shortlisted out of a thousand girls by Karan Johar for the movie, Alia followed a strict diet and exercise routine under the supervision of her father, Mahesh Bhatt and Karan Johar. For her character as Shanaya that appeared flawless on the screen, Alia got rid of her baby fat and went from 67 kgs to 55 kgs.

2) Kareena Kapoor
Bollywood’s size-zero queen, Kareena had to reduce 20kgs before her appearance in her debut film. She faced a lot of criticism for her slightly plump figure in the initial years of her Bollywood career. Most notable, after her appearance in “Yeh Mera Dil Pyaar Ka Deewana”. After that, things escalated quickly as she turned vegetarian and started working out and sure enough, her efforts paid off as we could see for ourselves in the movie ‘Tashan’.
3) Sonam Kapoor
The Style Icon of Bollywood, Sonam weighed 90kgs before she signed her first film ‘Saawariya’. She had to lose a whopping 30kgs to be fit for the role of Sakina in Saawariya.
