I did it in Guru 14-15 years ago, I did it for Bob, I put on a bit of weight for Big Bull because the role required it. But for Bob, I had to push it to another level. I became between 100-105 kilos during the shoot. When you do prosthetics on the cheeks, it looks like a prosthetic. The stomach also moves in a different way.

You can have Gud Sandesh and all the wonderful sweets 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 percent done. And, we had another 10-15 days of work left. Throughout the lockdown, I had to maintain that weight. That was tough. Because it is not nice to be overweight like that. It is very cumbersome, and I am not even getting into the effects it has on your health which it does, but it is difficult to carry that kind of weight around you. You have to do what you have to do for your work and your film. We managed to pull it off and finish the film and started the arduous process of losing it for my next project, which I was shooting soon after,” in a dialog with India immediately.
He additional talked about his psychological transformation and mentioned, “It was a tough and a deep-dark tunnel to be honest. Bob has lost his memory, so everything is fair game. There are no dos and don’ts. So, this was the process of basically rediscovering a person altogether.
