Choreographer Ganesh Acharya revealed on The Kapil Sharma Show that he lost 98 kg. The transformed Ganesh appeared on the show with Terence Lewis and Geeta Kapur.
In a promotional video for the episode, host Kapil Sharma noted Ganesh’s weight loss and asked him about it. Ganesh said he lost nearly 100 kg. Kapil joked: “Chote chote shehro me 46-46 kilo ke aadmi hotey hai. Do aadmi gayab kar diye apne (In small towns, you will find men weighing 46 kg. You made two men disappear.)”.
In a 2017 interview with the Hindustan Times, Ganesh talked about losing weight. “It was hard for me. I have been working on my body for the past and a half years. I had even put on 30-40kg for my film Hey Bro (2015), and my weight had then hit 200kg. Ab vahi weight utaar raha hoon (I’m losing that weight now), ”he said.
“Karna hi (I had to do this)! Ek soch thi ki (I thought that) I just have to do it. Logon ne Ganesh Acharya ko mota hi dekha hai (people only saw the fat Ganesh Acharya), that’s why I wanted to change the image. I have lost almost 85 kg now, “he added.

Ganesh is ready to appear in a starring role in a film called Dehati Disco. He spoke to the Hindustan Times about the film in another interview and said, “This is a very different kind of film. Unlike my comedic roles, this is a very serious role, action and dance. I play a father who has a 10 year old son. It is a dance film based on the Hindustani “kala” (art form). Since I have also directed films, I am using all of these experiences in my role. “
As a choreographer, Ganesh has worked on new projects such as BellBottom, Laxmii, Coolie No 1, Bhuj and Toofan by Akshay Kumar.
