Parineeti Chopra's confessions on 15kg weight gain and pregnancy rumors
Parineeti Chopra

Parineeti Chopra's transformative role in "Amar Singh Chamkila" has garnered widespread acclaim, but the journey to embody Amarjot Kaur wasn't without its challenges. The actress dedicatedly gained 15 kilograms to authentically portray the character, a decision that profoundly impacted her personal and professional life.

In a candid interview with Bollywood Hungama, Parineeti recounted the demands of her role, sharing how director Imtiaz Ali instructed her to forego makeup and embrace her natural appearance. Despite warnings from industry peers about the potential repercussions on her career, Parineeti drew inspiration from Vidya Balan's similar transformation for "The Dirty Picture."

However, the physical transformation took its toll, leading Parineeti to withdraw from public appearances and face rumours about pregnancy and plastic surgery. 

The actress candidly discussed the challenges of this period, revealing how she lost out on opportunities and struggled with her self-image. She said, “I was hardly seen on any red carpet. I wasn’t even papped. Fashion had taken a back seat because I didn’t look like myself. I don’t look like myself even now. But I would still prefer 10 Chamkilas over a red carpet appearance."

Despite the hardships, Parineeti remains resolute in her commitment to her craft, prioritising authenticity over glamour. For her, the profound impact of portraying Amarjot Kaur outweighs the allure of red-carpet appearances.

Directed by Imtiaz Ali, "Amar Singh Chamkila" premiered on Netflix. It showcases the poignant journey of the legendary singer and his wife.
