Her plus size figure was apparent in her debut film Gangs of Wasseypur as well as later in Luv Shuv Tey Chicken Khurana and Ek Thi Daayan.
The actress considers herself a foodie and her father is a restaurateur so meal times are serious business. However, the constant talk about her weight issue has made the actress do a rethink. Shedding the flab is high on her must-do list for now.
Says a source, “Huma has been working out regularly and is on a strict diet. She has been gymming for almost two hours everyday. She has already knocked off quite a bit.”
Adds the source, “The kind of films she featured in so far always required her in a certain look. So size matters were not exactly the issue. In fact, the filmmakers preferred the way she was as it suited her characters. Even in her upcoming film directed by Nikhil Advani, she needed to have a certain look. As she plays a RAW agent in the film, the idea was to make her look her part and not stand out.”
As soon as Huma wrapped up the shoot of the film, she began knocking off the inches and has already done a photo shoot in a bid to look svelte.
Other B-Town folk who have recently shed the flab include....
-- Govinda has knocked off about 35 kilos after following a no-sugar no-oil diet in a bid to reinvent himself.
-- Parineeti Chopra who has a tendency to pile on has apparently been working out as she does not want to be among those actresses who are comfortable with their weight and rely only on their histrionics.
