Bhumi faces some weighty is­sues

While many ac­tors such as Aamir Khan and Sal­man Khan are putting on weight for their up­com­ing films, ac­tor Bhumi Ped­nekar (right), who put on weight for her first film Dum Laga Ke Haisha, says that this is not an easy task. “It was very tough to put on weight for the film and then it’s even tougher when it comes to los­ing it. Weight loss will hap­pen grad­u­ally, but all this is very men­tally tax­ing. I gained 20 ki­los, but I lost weight very or­gan­i­cally,” she says, adding, “Af­ter my first film, I took a few months off to work on my­self. Dur­ing this time I was read­ing scripts and meet­ing peo­ple.”

The ac­tor, whose last film was a hit, says that there is no way for her to pre­dict how a film will do. “I am so new to all this and I have no idea what works and what doesn’t. With my last film too, I just had an in­stinct that it would do well and with my up­com­ing film also I have just gone with my gut feel­ing,” says Bhumi, who will soon be seen in an Aanand L Rai pro­duc­tion.

She is ex­cited to start the film as she will be seen in a com­pletely new avatar. “I am wait­ing to start work on the film. It is very dif­fer­ent from my last film. I will be rein­vent­ing my­self with this film and I hope the au­di­ence likes that,” she says.
