STR is shooting for Dharani directed Osthi in and around Mysore. The actor wants to have a six-pack look in the Dabangg remake, where he plays a cop.
The trouble with STR is that he is a 'Biriyani freak', who loves to hog on his favourite dish almost regularly.
Says STR: "I love biriyani , and it is one of my favourite dishes from childhood."
For Osthi he was asked to knock off a few kilos and to look fit and mean, by its director Dharani.
His trainer from Chennai asked him to keep away from Biriyani for a few weeks.
STR concluded by saying: "It is tough but I’m strictly on no carb diet. I will have my favourite Biriyani only in Chennai after I complete the Mysore schedule some time by August 5. The good thing is that we will complete the entire talkie portion of the film in this schedule."
