When we all thought only few actors like ‘Chiyaan’ Vikram can go to any extent, when it comes to gaining and losing weight, for a movie, Anuksha Shetty had done the unthinkable by gaining over 100 Kilos for Inji Iduppazhagi.
Even as the Baahubali actress is currently undergoing a tough weight loss regime to get back in shape for her upcoming movie, another actress has lost 10 Kgs for a movie, only after gaining a few extra pounds for the same project.
Raai Laxmi, who was last seen in Sowkarpettai, is currently busy shooting for an upcoming Hindi film and it is for this project, the Aranmanai actress had gained weight.
She has said, “In a few scenes in ‘Julie 2’ (Hindi film), I play a simple girl, with the girl-next-door look. Then, I had to gain a few pounds, in order to shoot another schedule, because the character needed to look a certain way in those scenes. I did that, too.”
For the next shooting schedule, Laxmi was requested to lose weight. “For the third schedule of the film, I had to lose weight again. I took break for about two months, and lost around 10 kilos. This portion involves me to be seen in a more glam avatar, sporting bikini and all. These scenes will be shot in Dubai. We will also shoot few crucial scenes in Rajasthan, later,” she has said.
The 28-year-old actress has said, she has given it all for this particular project.
“I had to put in lot of effort for my role, so, I refrained from signing any other projects for now. I agreed to the special number for Lawrence’s film, ‘Motta Siva Ketta Siva’, as it was just a two-day shoot. Moreover ‘Julie 2’ is my 50th film, and my debut film in Bollywood, so I have given it my all.”
