‘Be­ing fat is a bless­ing in dis­guise’

Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Front Page -

At a time when ev­ery­one in showbiz is sweat­ing it out to get that per­fect body, ac­tor-co­me­dian Bharti Singh (above) is quite happy about be­ing on the plus side.

The 29-year-old re­al­ity TV star said she does not mind be­ing over­weight as it has proved to be a bless­ing. “When I came to Mum­bai seven years back, I hated be­ing heavy but now it has be­come my USP. I never try to diet. To be suc­cess­ful, tal­ent mat­ters, not weight,” she says, adding, “When I see peo­ple laugh­ing at my jokes, I feel so spe­cial. It is more im­por­tant than the fame I’ve achieved.”

Bharti, who starred in Ak­shay Ku­mar’s Khi­ladi 786 and the Pun­jabi film Jatt & Juliet 2, has got a lot of film of­fers, but prefers TV. “I don’t know when I’ll do movies. I have so much work that I have no time for any­thing else. I love TV — all TV char­ac­ters are so pop­u­lar,” she said.
