Actor Imran Khan admits to steroid use, battling depression
Aamir Khan’s nephew, Imran Khan achieved success with his first movie ‘Jaane Tu…Ya Jaane Na’. Imran Khan has worked as a child artist in films like Qayamat Se Qayamat Tak and Jo Jeeta Wohi Sikandar as well.
The actor was last seen in the 2015 romantic drama Katti Batti with Kangana Ranaut. The ‘Delhi Belly’ actor recently shared a shirtless picture in which he looked ‘skinny’. Taking to his Instagram, Imran Khan shared some anecdotes from his initial days in the Hindi Film industry.
“I’ve always been skinny. I’m one of those hyper-metabolic people, my body just burns through whatever I consume. Oh no, what a terrible affliction! In my late teens, guys around me started joining gyms and working out. They started to expand, their biceps stretching the sleeves of their t-shirts. I wore a size S, and my sleeves were still loose,” the actor captioned in his Insta post.
The actor also admitted that he took steroids to have a muscular body. Imran Khan revealed that “6 meals a day, totalling 4000 calories. Chicken breast, egg whites, sweet potato, oats, flax seeds… all good stuff, but still not enough to make my biceps look like the heroes I saw onscreen. No, for that I needed to supplement with whey protein, creatine, leucine, glutamine, L-carnitine… and ultimately, even anabolic steroids. Shock and horror! We’re not supposed to admit that part out loud, it could totally ruin the illusion!”.
