On one side we had lead actress of the same movie, Alia Bhatt
looking fraile thin, to sport a bikini in the movie and on the
other side we had a fit looking Sanah put on 15 kilos to look
plumpy in the movie.
The actress was asked to put on weight by the director Vikas
Bahl! While she spent quite a lot of time putting on weight, now
that the movie shooting is over, Sanah has hit the gym to shed all
those extra kilos.
On asking Sanah about this experience, "It was a mental
challenge to convince myself to put on so much weight but for the
love of the role I thought it was worth it. It was a difficult
journey of putting on and now to lose weight."
Apart from going the extra length to prepare for her role, the
actress also bagged this movie without her brother or family's
help. She said, "When I went for the auditions of Shaandaar, I
choose to do this on my own - to work independently and prove
myself! I would like to thank Mukesh Chabbra for acknowledging my
talent and giving me this role which I instantly fell in love
She added, "One of the best moments for me after becoming a part of the project was coming home and telling mom, dad and Shahid bhaiya about getting selected. They didn't even know I had auditioned. The surprise and pride on their faces was priceless."
