Kriti Sanon recites self-penned poem against domestic violence.

 Kriti Sanon walked the extra mile to nail her look in the film ‘Mimi’. The actress had to put on some extra kilos to play a pregnant woman and gained weight in “two and a half months”.

She agrees it is not a healthy thing to do but adds that she wanted to take an extra step for the character as she felt that there is something for her in it.

“Obviously, it’s not a very healthy thing to do too often so you have to make sure…I wouldn’t do this again and again for a character…I told myself I won’t do this again but I think when you get a character which gives you so much to do as an actor then you end up giving yourself a lot back,” Kriti told IANS.

The 31-year-old actress added that she was willing to push those boundaries and go all out.

She said: “I always knew that this is something that has a lot for me in it so I think I was kind of willing to go that extra mile and it made a huge difference on screen. So, that makes all the impact.”

“Bodily, it’s not a very healthy thing to do, especially because I have put on weight like in two, two and half months.”

The actress revealed her weight gain and loss journey was very natural.

“I got my time to lose it…I did it all very naturally…but yes, as an actor you have to take care of your body and make sure you’re not making it go through these changes too often,” Kriti said.

‘Mimi’ also stars Pankaj Tripathi, Sai Tamhankar, Supriya Pathak and Manoj Pahwa. It is streaming on Jio Cinema and Netflix.

 For the second consecutive day, the Income Tax Department continued its ‘survey’ operations at the home of Bollywood actor Sonu Sood, official sources said here on Thursday.

A team of IT sleuths swooped on the 48-year-old Sood’s Juhu home to carry out search operations to detect certain alleged financial irregularities.

The IT department is examining bank statements, books of accounts, documents and details of financial or other business transactions during the ‘survey’, for suspected tax evasion, though no details are being shared officially.

In Wednesday’s operations, the IT had searched around half-a-dozen premises linked to the actor, including offices and other properties in Mumbai and certain locations in Lucknow.

Sood shot into limelight last year (2020) for arranging free flights or luxury buses for stranded migrants during the lockdown due to Covid-19 pandemic and sent them to different parts of India, besides organising liquid medical oxygen supplies to various hospitals during the second Covid wave this year (2021).

On Ayushmann Khurrana’s 37th birthday on Tuesday, his filmmaker-wife Tahira Kashyap revealed how the actor won her heart, when they both were just 19 years old.

Tahira on Tuesday shared a throwback picture on Instagram and penned a heart-warming note talking about how the actor wooed her.

“We were 19! I found you quite cool, with your frames, bike, matching sweaters and mufflers, but what got my heart was when you held the guitar and sang a song for me,” Tahira wrote.

She added: “You have always been passionate about art and what inspires me is after all these years your innocence and excitement towards work and life remains the same. You have been my biggest confidante and cheerleader.

“I might not be a big romantic as the goofiness (like you would say) gets the better of me, but I want to tell you that life is amazing with you and I continue learning a lot from you! Happy birthday umm P.S. – we were such lookers no.”

Ayushmann and Tahira were childhood sweethearts. The two got married in 2008. The couple welcomed their son Virajveer in 2012 and daughter Varushka in 2014.

Ayushmann’s upcoming roster includes ‘Anek’, ‘Chandigarh Kare Aashiqui’ and ‘Doctor G’.
