Kangna to dump slim avatar for a weighty role

first_imgKangna RanautExpect Kangna Ranaut to be unpredictable. At a time when most Bollywood divas are gunning for the size- zero oomph, Kangna has surprised all with her decision to gain weight.The pretty actress is reportedly gaining around seven kilos for a role she is essaying in her upcoming film, Tanu Weds Manu, co- starring R. Madhavan.She plays a north Indian lass in the Aanand Rai- directed film and after going through the script, she chose to go for a fuller look. The film is scheduled to open in the last week of February, and the promotion will start soon.A source in the Tanu Weds Manu unit says : ” It’s a bold decision on Kangna’s part, considering most of her rivals are desperate to present a skinny look these days. But Kangna has always been a little unusual in her choice of films and roles. Come to think of it, she might actually find it difficult to gain weight because of her busy schedule.If Kangna gains weight, it would affect the continuity of other projects.It remains to be seen how she handles the situation.” Now, Kangna is busy with films such as the Sunny Deol- starrer Happy New Year and Indra Kumar’s Double Dhamaal . She also has Priyadarshan’s next film, Tezz , costarring Ajay Devgn. Abhinay Deo’s Game is set to open on March 18, a couple of weeks after Tanu Weds Manu releases. In most of these films, she is sporting a svelte look.Director Rai has said he would like Kangna to put on weight because ” it is important that people identify with her character”. A freak accident helped in a way.During the shooting of the film, Kangna hurt her leg, for which Kangna was recommended bed rest for some time. That, in turn, helped her add a few kilos.Kangna was initially not sure how she looked with a few extra kilos. Rai, however, felt the weight she had put on during her rest was perfect for her north Indian character.So, he went ahead with a fuller Kangna for his shots.Incidentally, Vidya Balan, the actress, who has been known for her fulsome looks, is out to lose a few kilos. For her role as the late south Indian siren, Silk Smitha, in Milan Luthria’s Dirty Picture , the director wants Vidya to get into shape.Also, Dabangg – girl Sonakshi Sinha is working out to acquire a svelte figure before she starts shooting for Joker , Shirish Kunder’s upcoming 3D film costarring Akshay Kumar. And Bollywood’s original size- zero beauty Kareena Kapoor, who had gained some weight last year, is again out to shed the kilos to match her much younger co- star Imran Khan’s appeal in Karan Johar’s upcoming production, Stand By Me.advertisementlast_img
