From gluten-free diet to traditional drinks: Taapsee Pannu's diet during Shah Rukh Khan's 'Dunki' shoot

Taapsee Pannu filmed for 'Dunki' at various locations around the world that were experiencing a heat wave. Because the movie depicted a winter climate, certain dietary precautions had to be taken. Taapsee's nutritionist has opened up about these.

From gluten-free diet to traditional drinks: Taapsee Pannu's diet during Shah Rukh Khan's 'Dunki' shoot

Taapsee Pannu had her hands full shooting for ‘Dunki’, across diverse locations including London, Jeddah, Pune, Mumbai, Budapest, and Kashmir. Now, her nutritionist Munmun Ganeriwal has opened up about the challenges that she had to overcome to ensure a proper diet for the actor across all shoot locations.

Even though the movie depicted the winter season, most of the locations where the film was shot were experiencing a heat wave. This, combined with Taapsee’s winter attire for the film, as well as her strict fitness regimen, meant that proper measures needed to be taken to prevent heat stroke or exhaustion.

Ganeriwal explains that she incorporated vetiver roots, which have cooling properties, into the actor’s diet. To cool down between breaks, Taapsee was given variyali sherbet, a traditional beverage made with fennel seeds and rock candy. “But I also use black raisins in this recipe for her. This helps beat heat-related challenges like acidity, indigestion, etc,” emphasizes Ganeriwal. Yet another traditional summer drink she gave the actor was the Udupi ellu juice.

Because Taapsee was often alternating between shooting ‘Dunki’ and ‘Phir Aayi Haseen Dilruba’, in addition to the changing geographical locations, she was given a diet plan with a good balance of macronutrients as well as fluids. “Her meals aren’t completely gluten-free but we incorporate gluten minimally only so that there’s room for other grains and millets. Diversity has always been the key point in her meal planning”, explains Ganeriwal.

In addition to weight training and cardio, Taapsee Pannu also incorporates squash into her fitness regimen.
