Wamiqa moulds herself for each role

Wamiqa Gabbi

Looking the part is the first step towards becoming a character. Wamiqa Gabbi, who won praise for her performance in Jubilee, had to put on a few kilos to look the part of a ’50s actor. As luck would have it, her next Charlie Chopra and the Mystery of Solang Valley required her to sport a lean frame. She says that she had to shed 10 kilos for the Vishal Bhardwaj-helmed detective drama. “Going on a weight loss journey was a conscious decision. Eating right and at the right time was my mantra, combined with cardio and weight training. I had an amazing team of trainers and my nutritionist guiding me,” says Gabbi. 


The actor adhered to her meal plan as Bhardwaj kicked off the shoot of the web series — also starring Naseeruddin Shah, Lara Dutta and Priyanshu Painyuli — in Manali. “I wasn’t able to work out in Manali. So, I had to be on a strict diet. I had to lose inches, more than the weight. I’ve never prepped for a show as much as I have for this one,” she says.
