Despite his physical agility, Randeep admitted the Sarabjit experience as one of the toughest and most grueling ones of his life. He was under his sister's supervision, Dr. Anjali Hooda who slashed his daily calorie count to a mere 600kcal a day to achieve the desired weight loss.

Post Sarabjit, Randeep was seen taking extensive care of his diet and fitness to get back in shape, gain weight and achieve his lost stamina. The extreme crash diet for Sarabjit took its toll as the actor was reported to have had a collapse on the set of the Salman Khan mega-blockbuster Sultan.

A lover of white butter and pyaz parathas, Randeep is often seen sweating it out in the gym. He openly condemns crash diets and believes fitness to be a snail-paced, laborious process. For Randeep, fitness is defined by an enhanced ability to be able to run more or lift more rather than just dropping numbers on the weighing scale. Just a 20 minute run can go a long way in easing off anxiety and staving off depression as well.
