Kriti Sanon had a blast last year and the talented actress is all set to kick start this year with a very special film. Kriti who was last seen in Panipat has gained 15 kilos for her next film Mimi.
While we have already seen many male actors going on a physical transformation, very few female actors have opted for it.
It will be interesting to see Kriti in a new avatar since we have always seen her in a lean figure. Her character in the film is based on surrogacy.
Talking about her role, Kriti told a daily, “For me, putting on so many kilos is actually a challenge as it’s very new for my body. I have to in a way fight my metabolism and increase my calorie intake to gain that much weight in a short time. But I’m excited to see the transformation. It’s a role very close to my heart and I want to give it everything I can, even if that means not taking up any other work in the process.”
Source adds “Kriti has gone all out to ace the role. To gain weight, she had to increase her carb and fat intake. It includes cheese, desserts, ghee, junk food, fried stuff, potato, sweet potatoes. She has never been on a diet and ate everything. She also had to increase the quantity of every meal and the calorie intake. She also sometimes had to eat when she was not hungry.”
The film is based on the Marathi film Mala Aai Vhhaychay, which also grabbed National Award for Best Feature Film in Marathi in 2011. The film is produced by Maddock films in association with Jio Studios.
