Tanmay Bhat is 6 ft 3 inches (1.78 m; in meter;) tall and weighs over 85 Kg (187 lbs;). He wear glasses and weighs more than usual.
He did go through GYM training from Ranveer Allahbadia and lost over 100 Kg.
According to Ranveer,
- He went on a gradual caloric deficit. Cut calories VERY gradually – cut about 200/day every week. Example: Week 1- 3000/day. Week 2 – 2800/day. Week 3 – 2600/day. You should NEVER crash diet unless you want to lose muscle.
- Went on a high protein diet (backed by heavy amounts of hydration). He’s 6’3 and was consuming between 180-220 grams of protein every day. Overweight people can build muscle even in a caloric deficit — IF they eat a lot of protein. Burn fat + build muscle together.
- Lifted like a beast — Deadlifts, squats, bench presses, overhead presses. It’s amazing what heavy lifting can do for a human being’s body. Unfortunately, India still believes that weight training is unhealthy. This man is a living, breathing example of the power of weights.

Several comedians within Chakraborty’s circle, including Tanmay Bhat, knew about the allegations of harassment but opted to keep quiet and work with him. On 8 October 2018, AIB announced that Bhat would immediately “be stepping away from his association with AIB” for the time being. Amazon Video removed Tanmay Bhat from the panel of judges for the second season of Comicstaan due to the allegations.
In May 2019, AIB announced that Bhat was no longer suspended but that he was removed from the CEO post. A few weeks later, Bhat stated in videos posted to Instagram that he suffered from clinical depression, drawing criticism from Mahima Kukreja and fellow comedian Aditi Mittal, who accused Bhat of using depression as a good and characterised his claims as insincere.
Tanmay Bhat returned to YouTube in November 2019, streaming Pubg. He claimed PewDiePie to be his inspiration as a person who’s at a place in life:
“Where he’s independent, regardless of what Wall Street Journal says about him, or any other publication, his people are with him forever no matter what he does. He went from gaming to becoming an overall personality. He is an inspiration in the model he created.”
He also launched a second channel, ‘Honestly by Tanmay Bhat‘ where he hosts ‘learning streams’ and videos featuring experts in various topics. This channel has over 453 K subscribers.
