Sara Ali Khan, who made her Bollywood debut with Abhishek Kapoorâ€™s Kedarnath opposite Sushant Singh Rajput, has already established herself as the next big thing in the showbiz industry. The rising star has garnered many appreciations for her acting prowess and had been attracting headlines, even before her debut. While her acting career might show a positive inclination, she is also ruling hearts with her impeccable charm and beauty. The young actor has also turned a fashionista icon overnight. However, Saraâ€™s journey to the glamour world has been quite intriguing.
Once a flabby 96-kg girl to the hot avatar, Saraâ€™s makeover is truly fascinating and rather inspiring. The actor had to deal with weight issues for a long period of time but that did not seem to hinder her enchanting confidence. In an interview with SpotboyE.com, the Kedarnath star revealed her transformation journey from being the fat girl to the fashion icon! She said, â€œI was 96 kg at the time when I told my mother, sitting on the bed crying and saying, â€˜Mom, all I want to do is become an actor.â€™ Then, she said that you need to lose weight. And, it took me about a year-and-half to lose that weight. So, I completed the remaining two years of my graduation in a year so that I can return and start working early.â€
â€œI was always a chubby girl, but after going to the States, for the first two years, I put on a lot of weight and then last year, I burned all those kilos there itself. I think America is the place where you can really choose.Â Jahaan aapko pizza milta hain, wahin aapko protein milta hain. Jahaan pe chocolate milta hain, wahin aapko salad milta hain. That was it. So, I lost all the weight that I had gained there and lots more by working out and maintaining a disciplined life," she further added.
However, while the young star was going through the transformation, mother Amrita Singh stood unaware about it. Sara revealed that she did not send the pictures of her shedding weight back home and even refrained from face-timing her mother. While Amrita waited at the airport to receive her star daughter, she could only recognise her because of the suitcases.
â€œI was looking completely different. Obviously, 30 kg down, you ARE going to look different.â€Â
Sara, who made her Bollywood debut, with love saga was lauded by the critics and audiences across the country, for her outstanding performance.
The actor will soon be seen on the big screen oppositeÂ Ranveer SinghÂ inÂ Simmba, directed byÂ Rohit Shetty. Produced under the banner ofÂ Karan Joharâ€™s Dharma Production, the film is slated to hit the theatres on December 28.
