“I put on about 9 kilos, and now I am in the process of losing that weight. I was hoping to put on some weight on my arms and my face but of course everyone has a body type. I gained mostly on my stomach and my hips. During the time I had stopped working out completely, there were no restriction. I could eat whatever I wanted. Appu sir used to treat us every day with delicious food. We used to always be ready to eat more. My weight gain credit goes to Appu sir.” Shraddha said during media interaction.
Shraddha Kapoor who is playing the title role for the first time in the film said she wished to meet Haseena, “First time I played a role that is based on a real life character, unfortunately I didn’t get the chance to meet Haseena Parker, and I would have loved to meet her. It would have helped a lot, but of course Appu sir spent a lot of time with her and he explained to me how it was to meet her, what her personality was like, how her aura was. That helped me a lot to understand and I hope I did a satisfactory job at it.”
