Mumbai: Swara Bhaskar, who’s riding high on the success of Tanu Weds Manu Returns, has an interesting line up of films releasing in the second quarter of the year including the Salman Khan starrer Prem Ratan Dhan Paayo and Nil Battey Sannata among others.
Since Swara plays the role of a mother to a teenager in Ashwini Iyer’s Nil Battey Sannata, she had to put on weight as she looked too young for the role. A source says, “Swara is very particular about her characters and she will not leave any stone unturned to make them look believable on screen. She had to gain almost 10 kg for her role in Nil Battey Sannata. But for Prem Ratan Dhan Paayo, she had to look fitter and had to lose all the weight.”
Swara is glad to have got the opportunity to enact a mother at such an early stage of her career. She informs, “I’m very proud of Nil Battey Sannata and all that I had to do for the film and my role. Being a foodie, it was quite easy to gain weight but I needed to be back in a slim avatar and had to work hard to lose it all.”
