Actor Irfan's weight causing issues
Actor Irfan is a busy balancing his TV and film career. While he’s continuously shooting for the television soap Saravannan Meenatchi 2, ...
Amid working for these projects, the actor is dealing with a lot of weight issues these days. Ask Irfan about it and he says, “Ru is an action subject and it required me to beef up. So, I had to put on 12kg for the film. But for Pongi…, which is a comedy, the director asked me to lose weight. It was quite exhausting managing my weight for both these films.”
Talking about these films, he says, “Ru is an out-and-out action film. The film is set in and out of Bangalore. Pongi… is based in Sathyamangalam, near Coimbatore. I play a milkman in the film and was asked to pick up the Coimbatore slang as well. It was pretty tough. But with training, I managed to get the lingo right. I am looking forward to these releases.”
