Mandy Takhar has taken a lot of effort to ensure that ‘Bumboo’ her debut movie as a lead actress becomes a success at the box office. In order to look good, and add glamour to the movie, the talented actress has shed all her extra weight.
Mandy is a true Punjabi girl in every way and more so with regards to her eating habits – she is a complete fast food freak. She weighed around 143 lbs (sixty-five kgs) with a waist size of thirty-four inches. However, at the audition of ‘Bumboo’ when asked if she was willing to wear a bikini in the film, she accepted and took the offer as a challenge where she had to prove herself.
After consulting a nutritionist and following a strict vegetarian diet, she enrolled herself for kick boxing classes and dutifully managed to knock off about 33 pounds (15 Kilos) in just a month and a half so that she could look stunning in a bikini. It paid off as she stands out for being the only lady in an all male star cast.
After watching the dedication and seeing all the hard work the stars have put to make this film, we can wish them luck and hope that the movie ‘Bumboo’ becomes a huge hit at the Box Office. RCL Motion Pictures will be releasing the movie on March 30, 2012. This movie will also be Jagdish Rajpurohit’s debut directorial.
