If sources are to be believed, the actor, poised to be the next action hero in Bollywood, has especially flown down an Australian fitness trainer to get the rugged physique.
"Ram Charan had specially flown down one of the numero uno trainers from Australia and worked out for almost three to four hours day and night with him, even at 4 a.m for his action scenes in 'Zanjeer(2013)'," said a source.
"But he made sure that his workouts didn't interfere with the shoots and other commitments," the source added.
Directed by Apoorva Lakhia, the film also features Priyanka Chopra and it is ready to hit the screens Sep 6. It's a remake of director Prakash Mehra's "Zanjeer" (1973) that featured Amitabh and Jaya Bachchan in the lead roles.
