At a time when people are obsessed with shedding weight, imagine an actress putting on extra kilos. But Poonam Kaur had to do exactly that for her forthcoming film.
Titled 6, the film is directed by VZ Durai. She had to put on not one or two, but six kilos. She says it’s a role where she has two looks.
“I’ve to look younger and in the rest, mature. So, the director asked me to put on weight,” says she.
It seems her director showed her the picture of a girl who he referred to as Chinna Khusboo in a school girl’s uniform. “He told me that look would work out for me too,” she adds. Kaur who was 51 kg by the time she signed the film, went on to weigh 57 kilos.
