In 2014, Kriti Sanon made her Bollywood debut with Heropanti, alongside Tiger Shroff. From 2014 to 2023, the actor created a niche for herself with her promising acting. Sanon bagged the 69th National Award on Thursday in the Best Actress category for her performance in Mimi. Directed by Laxman Utekar, the actor played a surrogate mother in the film.

But, did you know Kriti Sanon’s role in Mimi has had her gain weight? Earlier, Sanon had shared a video on Instagram and revealed about the same.  She said she put on 15 kgs for Mimi and shedding those extra kilos wasn’t easy for her as she had shot for the song Param Sundari later.

The actor had also revealed that she had to quit working out, not even yoga, for 3 months, which affected her stamina and flexibility. In the video shared on Instagram, she can be seen working out and performing yoga to lose weight for Param Sundari.
