Shaheer was neither comfortable with the idea of rising early nor enthusiastic about hitting the gym. But to do justice to his role of Arjun, he had to over-come his so-called 'comfortable' life. The actor has not only been paying acute attention to his diet, but also taking his workout sessions which helped him build his core muscles. Since his 'dhanush' (bow) is seven feet long, he was required to be physically fit and strong to carry it with ease and desired body posture.
