A source informed us that Avinash had gained around 9 KGs of weight to bring about a difference in the present character of Dev with the previous one in Chhoti Bahu.. Sindoor Bin Suhaagan.
In a face to face conversation with TellyBuzz, Avinash confirmed, "Yes, I have gained almost around 9 K.Gs of weight but I want my audience to notice it, as I have done this just for the show. I don't want the audience to draw similarities".
"If viewers say that there is nothing different in Chhoti Bahu 1 and 2, all our efforts will be in vain. There is a difference to even the Dev-Radhika (Rubina Dilaik) chemistry, and we have brought it back to life in a different way", adds Avinash.
When asked Avinash about the manner in which he put on weight, he said "I gained all the weight within 25 days when I was in U.S. I was literally harping on sweets, ice creams, cheese varieties etc. I had an intake of about 8 meals a day and the weather in U.S helped me to put on the weight. After coming back to India I toned down my body to shape it with exercise".
Get ready to see your favorite Dev in his new avatar..
