Nimrat Kaur spills the beans on gaining 15 kilos for ‘Dasvi’


Actress Nimrat Kaur went the extra mile to make her ‘Dasvi’ character look authentic. She gained 15 kgs of weight to bring Bimla Devi to life.

On why she decided to take the full plunge, Nimrat says, “Bimla is a typical North Indian housewife who becomes an overnight politician. There was a certain realistic look we had designed and piling on the pounds was just part of the process.”

Director Tushar Jalota too was delighted with the dedication, as he shares, “With a cast and crew that’s relentless towards making a film better, what else can a director ask for! Nimrat was taking a big gamble, but we are glad that it paid off. When audiences walk out of Dasvi, they will be in love with Bimla”.

Jio Studios & Dinesh Vijan present, Dasvi. A Maddock Films production, directed by Tushar Jalota, starring Abhishek Bachchan, Yami Gautam and Nimrat Kaur among others, produced by Dinesh Vijan and Bake My Cake Films, streaming on Jio Cinema and Netflix from April 7.
