Mumbai: Abhishek Bachchan is garnering a lot of praise for his role in his upcoming film ‘Bob Biswas’. The actors are looking quite chubby in the trailer of the film. It is obvious that such a look of hers has happened due to weight gain. The actor has now told about gaining several kilos and getting stuck with it when the shooting of the film stopped in lockdown.
Abhishek said that it was fun to gain weight while eating Bengali sweets, but maintaining that weight during the lockdown was cumbersome. He said in an interview to India Today, ‘I mean I had to gain weight while shooting in Kolkata in winters, when you have a chance to have good messages and taste all the wonderful sweets of Kolkata, but mentally I was stuck. .’
He further says, ‘We had to stop work after completing half the shooting due to the lockdown. We had completed about 80 per cent of the work. We had 10-15 days more work left. I had to maintain that weight during the lockdown, which was difficult.
The actor tried using prosthetics at the behest of director Diya Ghosh and her father Sujoy Ghosh, but they could not do so. He says, ‘During the shoot, my weight was between 100-105 kg. If you see Bob’s face, the face has changed due to the roundness and full cheeks.
He says about prosthetics, ‘When you use prosthetics on the face, it looks like a prosthetic. The stomach feels different. When you have that weight and you are performing with that, your entire performance changes because your body language changes your weight, your pace, your running, everything changes. Let us inform that the film ‘Bob Biswas’ written by Sujoy Ghosh and directed by his daughter Diya Annapurna Ghosh will premiere on 3 December 2021 on Zee5 (ZEE5).
