Shows on the small screen in India doesn't allow much scope of going through huge transformations basically because of the continuity problem. If you have a show running for years and years and then it goes off-air and you bag a new one, you still don't have enough time to do too much to change.
However, actor Avinash Mishra, who was last seen in Yeh Rishtey Hai Pyaar Ke has taken the brief period of Yeh Rishtey going off-air to shed few kilos.
Mishra is sealed on to play the male protagonist in upcoming show Durga. The show that will depict a story of an ardent devotee and believer of Sherawali Maa who believes that the goddess has chosen her to protect the male protagonist from evil forces. To be able to do justice to his role, Mishra went on to shed few kilos for his role in order to portray a leaner look. Sharing his thoughts on it to Times of India, Mishra said, “When we sat for the script reading and the makers explained the look of the role I will be essaying then I decided to take things seriously and make sure I look the part. Over the past couple of years I have gained weight and have been consistent with my workouts to keep up with my appearance but shedding a few kilos was definitely a task.”
He added, “Shedding weight is never an easy process and adapting to new trends in terms of dieting and workouts is always challenging but a fun process. This transformation didn’t happen overnight but I prefer keeping a tab on my regular exercise and keep an eye on what I eat. I hope the audience would love the show and shower us with all the love and appreciation.”
