Telugu actor Allari Naresh, who is playing an extremely fat character in comedy film Laddu Babu, says that it was a Herculean task for him as he needed to spend seven hours everyday to wear and remove prosthetic make-up for the role. His character weighs over 200kg in the movie, directed by Ravi Babu.
Talking to media, Allari Naresh revealed the struggle he had to undergo every on the sets of the film. The actor said, "The character that I play in the film weighs over 200 kg. I had to wear layers of prosthetic make-up to look fat. It used to take me almost six hours every day to wear the make-up and another few hours to remove it."
Allari Naresh added, "Playing the role was extremely tough because moving freely was a challenge with the make-up. I had to wear bigger shoes to walk and that too with great difficulty, survive on liquid diets throughout the shoot because munching would affect the make-up and even bear skin infections," he added.
Schedule for summer release, Laddu Babu also features Bhumika Chawla in the lead. Naresh put up with arduous make-up sessions because he feels he owed it to the director. "I was introduced by Ravi Babu in 'Allari'. Whatever I am today is because of the opportunity he gave me many years ago and the faith he had in me. I'll always be indebted to him and I agreed to do the film for him," he said.
