I did it 14-15 years ago in Guru, I did it for Bob, I gained a little weight for Big Bull as the role required But for Bob, I had to push it to another level. I got between 100-105kg while shooting.

That was tough. Because it’s not good to be overweight like that. It’s too cumbersome, and I’m not even into the effects on your health, but that kind of weight It’s hard to carry around. You have what you have to do for your work and your film. Sad to lose it for your next project, which I was shooting for soon,” In conversation with Today.
