"This sequence requires me to look a little plump. Hence, I'm eating right things to gain a little weight to justify my role in the show. I will be seen pregnant with twins and so it's all the more necessary to gain weight," Deepika said explaining why it is necessary to gain weight.
The Star Plus show, Diya Aur Baati Hum, is one of very few shows that has managed to top the charts week after week from the moment the show was aired. The show is also said to take a leap of six years after Sandhya, Deepika character gives birth to twins.
Not long ago, Deepika was asked to lose weight to suit the character of an IPS officer. Deepika who was under scanner for her weight issues, lost a ton of weight to get into the role. Now, the actress is going to put on all the weight lost and more to look like a healthy pregnant lady carrying twins.
Post leap, the show will focus on showcasing how Sandhya tries to strike a balance between her job and her motherhood. The actress was seen expressing her excitement over this by saying, ""I am really looking forward to the leap as a lot of interesting things have been planned."
