New Delhi:

Actor Arjun Kapoor's post on battling obesity went viral on social media with encouraging comments pouring in from his Instafam, including his rumoured girlfriend Malaika Arora, who posted the same message thrice (technical issue, maybe?). "Faith and hard work," she wrote and posted with a muscle arm emoticon. Arjun's celebrity friends such as Ranveer Singh and Varun Dhawan and family members including sister Anshula Kapoor and cousins Harshvardhan Kapoor and Mohit Marwah. On Tuesday, Arjun Kapoor posted a few pictures from his workout session for his upcoming film Panipat and said that it took six months to achieve the look he wanted for the Ashutosh Gowariker-directed film. He also talked about his "tough journey" of battling obesity.

Ranveer Singh, whose thunder Arjun Kapoor stole with one comment (more on that later) yesterday, commented, "ARRE ARRE ARRE BAUS !!!!!!" Varun Dhawan wrote: "Arjun Kapoor 2.0. I want IP rights." Arjun's sister Anshula added: "Because you've never let anything get the better of you, always risen - better than ever... You the man."

Check out Arjun Kapoor's post here:

It's been a tough journey for me ever since I was a kid when it comes to my battle with obesity. Everyone has their own struggles I have had and continue to have mine. But the whole point of life is that we fall, we get back up and try again... efforts will pay off eventually if not today then in a week month or even a year... I started training with @shivohamofficial this January and slow and steady we have managed to At least lay a foundation during our prep for Panipat. I vowed never to give up in the 3 years it took me to lose 50kgs when I was 20 years old & I sure as hell won't be giving up and letting go now... keeping the belief is key, u gotta keep at it and one day you will reap the benefits... we all gotta keep the faith and keep at it cause what we do today will echo in time and reflect within us eventually...
