Mumbai, April 19 -- Randeep Hooda may already boast of a great physique, but he's working hard to better it for an upcoming film. Apart from working out regularly, we're told that the actor has brought about a 360-degree change in his lifestyle too.
"His character in his next film requires him to be at his fittest, and to have a particular kind of physique. He is also brushing up on his fighting technique by learning mixed martial arts," says a source close to the actor.
Randeep felt that in order to prepare for his role, he needed to go beyond working out. So, he has completely changed his lifestyle too. "He was always a late sleeper and late riser, but now, he sleeps early, so that he can train in martial arts in the morning. Parties have taken a backseat too," says the source, adding, "Randeep's diet has undergone a huge change, and he's also avoiding alcohol. As a result, he has managed to put on 14 kg to suit the character."
When contacted, Randeep said, "I didn't mind the workout regime but sleeping and waking up early was tough. I didn't enjoy it at all."
