Though he had a dedicated fan base for his charm and screen presence, we have to accept that it would be quite a challenge for Megastar to compete with the youngsters regarding fitness. The actor who came to Tollywood after his political endeavours have put down some serious weight for his comeback. In some of the interviews during ‘Sye Raa’ promotion, he confessed that he had a hard time getting into the body of a warrior. However, seems like Koratala Siva, Chiru’s next director is yet not happy with the latter’s weight.
While the pictures of Chiru sweating out at the gym under professional guidance went viral a couple of weeks ago, rumours that the actor has secretly flown to the US broke out. Inside info is that vigorous training didn’t work for the actor who is at his mid 60’s which forced him to go for bariatric surgery to shed weight. The team has already announced that the regular shooting would commence from mid-December.
