Southern filmmakers want me to look chubby, says Pia TrivediJuly 20th, 2008 - 9:28 pm ICT by IANS
Mumbai, July 20 (IANS) Model-cum-VJ Pia Trivedi prefers working in Bollywood rather than southern films because the filmmakers in the south want her to put on extra pounds. “I have not accepted any offers from southern filmmakers because they wanted me to increase my weight in order to fit the role. They wanted me to look chubby, but I am not ready to do so,” said Pia.
“I am happy with my figure and have no intentions to increase my weight to get a film in south. I have made myself as per requirements of Bollywood and will be very happy to work here,” added Pia, who has been the Kingfisher’s swim suit model for two consecutive years.
Pia also featured with Abhishek Bachchan in a promotional song for “Bluffmaster” and now she will be seen with him once again in an item number “No body like you” in Apoorva Lakhia’s “Mission Istanbul”.
“Abhishek has been very lucky for me and I am looking forward to work with him in some other projects too,” she said.
