NOT ENOUGH ROLES WRIT­TEN FOR PLUS-SIZE WOMEN: BHUMI

Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Front Page - An­juri Na­yar Singh

Ac­tor Bhumi Ped­nekar had gained 25kg for her film Dum Laga Ke Haisha (2015) and then took some time off to shed the ki­los. The 27-year-old says the plan was al­ways to lose the weight. “Un­for­tu­nately, we don’t have a lot of roles writ­ten for plus-size women in Bol­ly­wood. Be­fore Dum Laga Ke Haisha, my plan was al­ways to knock off the weight. I wasn’t that big nat­u­rally. For me, that came from the place of want­ing to do ev­ery role and not be­ing cat­e­gorised in one seg­ment,” she says.
