Mumbai, Sep 22 (IANS) After putting on weight to play a 60-year-old in Ketan Mehta's 'Rang Rasiya', Randeep Hooda is back in the gym to get in shape to play the same character at 20 - in just 10 days!

<a href=Randeep Hooda" src="http://www.india-forums.com/bollywood/images/uploads/randeep_hooda_big.jpg" align="right" border="" hspace="5" vspace="5">'I've let my body become a bit flabby and paunchy to play the older section between the age of 60 and 70 of my character Raja Ravi Varma in Ketan Mehta's 'Rang Rasiya'. Now I've to immediately to go down to playing the character aged 20,' Hooda said.

'The facial change can easily be achieved by shaving off the beard. But how I do I change the contours of my body?' he wondered.

Randeep, now shooting for the film in Pune, has again started going to the gym. 'I had stopped that for a while to look flabby and decadent. Now I need to re-acquire my sinewy look. To get there I've just 10 days on my hands.'

'Rang Rasiya' co-star Nandana Sen is vastly impressed by her co-star's dedication. She spends quite a lot of time trying to figure out Randeep's raga of re-invention.

Randeep isn't wasting a moment. He has cut down on his favourite foods and is working out like mad to look like a 20-year-old again.

Incidentally, Randeep's next release, a romantic comedy featuring a bevy of co-stars from Minissha Lamba to Divya Dutta is no longer called 'Love Game'.

'We've re-christened the film 'Love Tadka'. How does that sound?' Randeep is gung-ho about the 'tadka' in the title, though he's avoiding it in his daal these days.
