Sai Tamhankar, who started her acting career with the Bollywood film ‘Black and White’ (and acted in many Marathi films from then on), is all set for her forthcoming release, ‘Love Sonia’. For her role, Sai Tamhankar has gained 10 kg in order to perfect her look for the film.

Director Tabrez Noorani’s film ‘Love Sonia’ is based on child trafficking and Sai’s character (Anjali) needed to look a certain way. A source close to Sai told IANS that it was important for Sai to gain weight in order make the character look authentic.

“When Sai heard the script, one thing that came to her mind was that her character Anjali is a pimp who used to be a prostitute. She is carefree and probably won’t be in the best of shape. The additional weight gain helped her get the body language,” said the source.

“‘Love Sonia’ is a hard hitting film and is a very close representation of reality. I had to go through a lot of research to bring Anjali to life on screen without making her look caricature-ish. I gained weight to make the character look more authentic. The way it’s shaped up, I think it was worth it,” Tamhankar said in a statement.

‘Love Sonia’ marks the Bollywood debut of Mrunal Thakur and also stars Frieda Pinto, Manoj Bajpayee, Anupam Kher, Rajkummar Rao and Richa Chadda . The movie is presented by Tamasha Talkies and Samraaj Talkies in association with India Take One Productions, Cinemantra & Dynasty Consulting Group, and releases on 14th Sept, 2018.
