Arshad Warsi issued an apology to journalists who reached out to him to talk about his fitness journey and said that he is ‘far from fit’. Last week, he shared pictures of his physical transformation, leaving everyone in awe.
“To our press fraternity who want to talk to me about the picture I posted. I am sorry but I am far from fit, the day I feel I am worthy of talking about my fitness, I promise I will talk. Tab tak ke liye maafi chahata hun (Till then, I apologise),” he wrote on Twitter.
Previously, Arshad shared a picture collage, showing his transformation, and said that he was bulking up for a new assignment. “Long way to go, but getting in shape for my next project,” he wrote.
Ranveer Singh, Ashish Chowdhry and others showered compliments on Arshad. On Saturday, John Cena shared the picture on his Instagram page without any caption, sending fans into a frenzy.
In a recent interview with Hindustan Times, Arshad talked about meeting the ‘strangest kind of people’ in Bollywood. “When I came into this industry, everybody was like ‘this guy is so good’ and this and that. Then my movies started not doing well, and they said ‘I knew he was not a good actor, he won’t go anywhere’. All of a sudden, it became ‘I always knew he was a good actor’! Then you have guys who have absolutely zero talent,” he said.
