Sridevi almost went through an image makeover, ironically, after she quit films to get married and bring up her two daughters. She did not have an enviable figure but thanks to regular tennis, eating the right food and some more yoga, today she is a hot mum at 49. Unbelievable!  (GETTY/GALLO)

It's hard to believe that Kareena Kapoor who created ripples with her size zero look and started its trend in Bollywood actually weighed over 70 kgs just a few years ago.

However, she took to power yoga and a healthy lifestyle and knocked off those excess kilos. She finally has the perfect figure that makes her the envy of many women.

Sonakshi Sinha also was hugely overweight. The 'Dabangg' actress lost 26 kgs and even though she is still on the heavier side there is a lot of difference from how she looked earlier and her looks today.

Similarly, Sonam Kapoor weighed a good 90 kg before her debut 'Saawariya'. However, the determined star kid lost 30 kgs and is currently known as one of the most stylish actresses in Bollywood.

Arjun Kapoor always wasn't as fit as he is today. He grew up like a typical Kapoor boy -  fat. However, he has worked very hard on his body!

Mahesh Bhatt's daughter, Alia Bhatt,  went from chubby cheeks to fab fit  for her debut film 'Student of the Year'.

Adhyayan Suman, who flaunted his six-pack look in the film 'Raaz: The Mystery Continues', used to weigh 110 kgs before he hit the treadmill with a vengeance.

This singer's weight loss is now the stuff of legends. In June 2006, Adnan weighed 206 kgs and according to him, his doctor said he was giving him just six months to live! However, Adnan determined to survive miraculously lost 107 kg in 9 months.
