Default TV stars who manipulate their body size and weight to get into character

As actors, their job is to do everything possible to fit into a role - sometimes, quite literally. We’re talking about the stars who manipulate their body size and weight to get into character.



Ragini Khanna (Bharati of Bhaskar Bharati)

After wrapping up Radha Ki Betiyaan Kuch Kar Dikhaayengi, Ragini Khanna, who played one of Supriya Pilgaonkar’s daughters, lost 12 kilos to fit in to the role of the ***y Bharati in Bhaskar Bharati (Sony TV). She completely cut down on heavy junk food and shed those extra calories to get the new look.

Swapnil Joshi (Kakku of Ghar Ki Baat Hai)

Swapnil Joshi is an exceptional case when it comes to weighty issues- he actually wanted to pile on the pounds! To portray the character of a plump Kakku in Ghar Ki Baat Hai, Joshi had to gain about 10 kilos. The task was quite a struggle for the naturally thin actor who had to force feed himself continuously.

Angad Hasija
(Angad of Bidaai)

Angad Hasija, who was initially a body builder, was very hefty before he joined the cast of Bidaai. In order to play Angad, he was told to lose his bulkiness. This led the actor on a weight loss mission. He lost about 10 kilos to look the way he does today. Once the show started, shooting 24/7 for the daily made maintaining his new weight easier.
