Parvin Dabas puts on 10 kgs for Vikram Shankar’s ‘Jab Tum Kaho’

Actor Parvin Dabas is all set to make a comeback to the big screen since his last film Ragini MMS 2, which released in 2014. The actor’s next film is director Vikram Shankar’s ‘Jab Tum Kaho’ where Pravin plays the role of a mature Delhi boy. But in order to fit the role, we hear that Parvin had to put on 10 kgs!

Apparently the director felt that he looked too young for the role so Pravin Dabas underwent a transformation to get the mature look the director was looking for. It wouldn’t be the first time a Bollywood actor has taken on a dramatic transformation for a role, Vidya Balan, Farhan Akhtar, Priyanka Chopra and more have done the same. Confirming the same, Parvin Dabas said,

“Yes, Vikram felt I looked too young to play a slightly mature character and I looked like the rest of the younger boys so he asked me to put on some weight so I could look older than them…I’m still trying to lose the extra weight!”

‘Jab Tum Kaho’ has been directed by Vikram Shankar and stars Parvin Dabas, Ambalika Sarkar and Shirin Guha in pivotal roles. It has been produced by Vikram Shankar and Rajiv Kumar with music by Shankar Mahadevan and Mohit Chauhan. The film is set for release on February 26, 2016.
