NOT ENOUGH ROLES WRITTEN FOR PLUS-SIZE WOMEN: BHUMI
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.
