*** EXCLUSIVE – VIDEO AVAILABLE *** LUDHIANA, INDIA – JANUARY 21: Anand Arnold poses at the gym on January 21, 2015 in Ludhiana, India. PARALYSED at the age of 15, Anand Arnold has beaten all the odds to become one of India’s most celebrated bodybuilders. The 28-year-old, Ludhiana, India, has to use a wheelchair, but that hasn’t stopped him winning over 40 bodybuilding titles – and he is even the model for a range of muscular mini action figures. Anand started bodybuilding at the age of 13 but his dreams of turning professional received a massive blow when he was diagnosed with cancer in his lower spinal cord aged 15. However, with the help of his friends and family the muscle man has overcome all obstacles in his path – including being deserted by his former girlfriend – and he is now dreaming of turning his inspirational story into a feature film.
