At a time when actresses are losing weight to look hot on-screen, Shahid Kapoor's sister, Sanah Kapoor piled on weight for her debut movie, Shaandaar.
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 with."
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."
