After the trailer was released, Abhishek Bachchan was praised for his role in the upcoming series Bob Biswas. In the trailer, you can see the actor with chubby cheeks and big belly. He has now sprinkled the beans on gaining extra weight, and then maintained his weight after the movie was paused during the lock-in period.
Abhishek found it interesting to add extra weight by filling Bengali sweets, but at the same time found it difficult to maintain weight throughout the lock-in period.
In an interview with the online portal, Abhishek said, “I mean gaining weight. Obviously it was shot in Kolkata in the winter, when you could eat Gud Sandesh and all the wonderful sweets of Kolkata, but mentally I was trapped. , Because we had to close the shooting midway due to the lockdown, we have completed about 80%. Moreover, we still have 10-15 days to work. I had to maintain this weight during the entire lockdown. It was too difficult NS.”
The Dhoom star tried to wear prostheses as instructed by director Diya Ghosh and her father Sujoy Ghosh, but decided not to use them. “I weighed between 100-105 kg during the shooting. If you see Bob’s face, his face becomes rounded and his cheeks become fuller. When you make a prosthesis on your cheeks, it looks like Like a prosthesis. Therefore, the stomach moves in different ways. When you have that weight and you bear that weight on your body, your entire performance will change because your body language changes your weight, your movements, Your walking, your running, everything is changing,” he said.
Bob Biswas tells the story of a murderer who first appeared in Vidya Balan’s “Kahaani” and was originally played by Saswata Chatterjee.
Produced by Gauri Khan, Sujoy Ghosh and Gaurav Verma, “Bob Biswas” was written by Sujoy Ghosh and directed by his daughter Diya Annapurna Ghosh.
