Mumbai, Dec. 11 -- Aamir Khan is known to be a method actor, and staying true to his image, the actor who is set to play the character of a wrestler in his next (to be directed by Nitesh Tiwari) has earmarked six months - starting February 1 - to prepare for his new role.
"From February onwards, Aamir will focus on building a wrestler's physique. For the same, he is likely to work out for five to six hours a day," says an insider.
The actor is so determined to get the right look for the film that he has already started preparing himself for the upcoming, intensive workout.
"Even during the promotional tours of his upcoming film, Aamir demanded for a high-tech gym wherever he stayed. Aamir, who had an international trainer while preparing for Dhoom:3 (2013), has roped in a special trainer, for this film too whose identity has been kept under wraps," adds the insider.
Despite repeated attempts, Aamir couldn't be reached for a comment.
