New Delhi: 

Highlights

  1. Arjun Kapoor Instagrammed an old photo of himself
  2. The photo is from before he made an entry to Bollywood
  3. Arjun was nicknamed as "fubu"
Who shares throwback posts on Tuesdays? The correct answer would be Arjun Kapoor, who has formulated his own '#ThrowbackTuesday' hashtag. So, on Tuesday, we spotted a really old photo of Arjun Kapoor from even before he made his debut in Bollywood. But the photo is from when he was working as an assistant director for Nikkhil Advani's 2007 film Salaam-E-Ishq and Arjun was visibly overweight. Ahead of his introduction to films as a hero, Arjun was very much part of Bollywood but as an assistant director (as mentioned before) and also as associate producer. Arjun, who reportedly weighed some 140 kilos, revealed in an episode of Koffee With Karan Season 4, why he was nicknamed 'Fubu' in the showbiz circle. Fubu was a brand of clothing known for making oversized jerseys and sweatshirts and that's the only brand Arjun sported back then.

Making a reference to a not-so-lean version of himself and Argentine basketball player and professional wrestler Jorge Gonzalez (who was popularly known as Giant Gonzalez) Arjun added the phrase "Fubu in da house" to a caption which read: "Thursday's too far so let's Throwback Tuesday to my Giant Gonzalez days while assisting on Salaam-E-Ishq With Nikkhil Advani! Guess which one of them is me!" Tagging his friends (which also includes Dia Mirza's husband Sahil Sangha), Arjun added: "PS - I had guts wearing horizontal stripes but long hair is still da bomb!"

LOL. Check out Arjun Kapoor's throwback post here:
 


Salman Khan reportedly inspired Arjun Kapoor to lose weight during his interactions with him on the sets of Salaam-E-Ishq, after which he is also said to have supervised Arjun's training sessions. Arjun reportedly lost some 50 kilos in two years and then toned up before he joined the sets of Ishaqzaade in 2012. For his debut film, Arjun co-starred with Parineeti Chopra, who has also featured in headlines for her fat-to-fit story.

Last seen in Mubarakan, Arjun Kapoor will next be seen in Namastey England. He also has films like Sandeep Aur Pinky Faraar and Panipat in the pipeline.
