Size-zero race: Rimi Sen runs in the opposite direction

Yes, this true…. When everyone else is in a race to attain size-zero, glamorous Rimi Sen chooses to do just the opposite. She is all set to play an extremely obese woman in an upcoming comedy by director Tigmanshu Dhulia. The movie to be shot in London would feature Govinda as a conman and Rimi as a fat, flabby girl who has a crush on him.

The good news for the admirers of Rimi’s perfect curves is that the gorgeous lady would not be really putting on any weight for the role. It will be the magic of prosthetics, bodysuits, and layers of make-up which will make her look fat.

Tigmanshu was earlier apprehensive if Rimi would like to go in for such a makeover given the sexy image she has on screen. However, while shooting his film Shagird – in which Rimi plays a journalist – Tigmanshu tossed the idea to Rimi and the actress was game for it.

“She was very sporting and instantly said yes,” Dhulia says.
