He also gained weight for his role in ‘Bob Biswas,’ talking about it in an interview with India Today, the ‘Bunty Aur Babli’ actor spoke about massive physical transformation and said: “I mean to put on the weight obviously shooting in Kolkata in winter when you can have Gud Sandesh and all the wonderful sweet food that Kolkata has, but mentally I got stuck because we had to shut down our shoot halfway through because of the lockdown and we were about 80 per cent complete. And, we had another 10-15 days of work left. Throughout the lockdown, I had to maintain that weight. That was tough.”
