He recalled how it his trainer who kept him going. "My trainer sometimes keeps experimenting with different kinds of training during the off-season, when I was not shooting for the film. One day I wasn't motivated and so he said we would try something else the next day. That's how I did it. Luckily we shot it and it was an interesting workout," he added.
