‘I hate putting on weight for films’

Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Front Page - AN­JURI NA­YAR SINGH

Los­ing and putting on weight to fit into their char­ac­ters seems to be a man­date for ac­tors but Swara Bhaskar (above) is not fond of this trend.

The 27-year-old, who will be los­ing weight for her up­com­ing film Anaarkali Aaraawaali, says that putting on weight is easy, but los­ing it is a chal­lenge. “I’ve had to put on weight for films and I am a foodie, so it’s not an is­sue. But los­ing weight is tough. This is why I hate putting on weight for films. I am still try­ing to lose the weight from my last film. I am very ner­vous this time,” she says.

Swara, who is great friends with ac­tor Sonam Kapoor, says that she is a very gen­uine per­son. “I love Sonam. She’s a beau­ti­ful sur­prise and not at all bitchy like other ac­tresses. She is a breath of fresh air in this com­pet­i­tive industry. It’s so much fun be­ing with her,” says Swara, adding that the industry is such that there can’t be many friend­ships. “I’ve had at least one friend­ship from ev­ery film. But I guess it’s tough for ac­tors, who’re com­pet­ing with each other,” she says.
