Many actors have to change their appearances and work hard on their physical forms for a particular role in a movie. Kriti Sanon is one such actor, who had to gain 15 kilos for her role as a surrogate mother in her upcoming film called mimi. While talking about it, she said, “I didn’t think I would be able to do this as I have always been skinny. In fact, i can eat everything, from pizza to pasta to dal makhani because I’m blessed with good metabolism. I hope I haven’t lost that because of this film.” She further said that there were days when she had to force herself to eat as she felt stuffed and had lost interest in food.
However, the main challenge for her was that after she had shot all the scenes in which she was to look chubby, she had to go back to her old self for shooting the remaining parts of the film, in which she had to appear lean and thin. Getting back in shape was a lot harder for her as compared to gaining weight. She had to follow a strict diet plan, something that she had never done before.
What came to her as a surprise though, was her fans demanding that she retains her ‘15 kilos’ mimi look. Many of her fans have even started calling her by the nickname ’chubby sanon.’ Amused at this, kriti told bollywood hungama, “It’s really funny that my fans have started calling me chubby sanon.It’s really cute and I like the nickname also.” Although she refuses to retain all 15 kilos, she said she might go for 5, if that is what her fans really want.
Kriti’s upcoming film is an official remake of the hit Marathi movie, ‘Mala Aai Vhhaychy’ which won a national award in 2011. The film is directed by Laxman Utekar, and stars Pankaj Tripathi alongside Kriti sanon.
