Actress Anushka Shetty a.k.a. Anushka has revealed as to what made her put on so much weight around her waist and hips, thus apparently delaying the making of S.S. Rajamouli’s magnum opus Baahubali 2.
Lanky Anushka was a Yoga instructor when she debuted in Tamil films mlre than a decade back with Sundar C’s Rendu opposite Madhavan. She didn’t get any immediate film offers and moved to Tollywood. For more than a decade, Anushka managed to remain in shape though she never possessed an hourglass figure.
She put on weight for her role in Size Zero (Inji Iduppazhagi in Tamil) in 2015 and later starred in Si3 in the same get-up. When Si3 released a few weeks back, Anushka was criticized by critics for her inability to control weight. Amid rumours which said that her ‘weighty’ issues were delaying trailer-release of Baahubali 2, Anushka has now opened up on what made her put on so much weight.
“When I was shooting for a particular sequence in Si3, I suffered injuries and had to remain bed-ridden for a few weeks. This made me skip my regular exercises and yoga classes as a result of which I had put on so much weight. However, I’m now feeling perfect alright physically and have initiated the process of shedding extra kilos,” adds Anushka.
