“When I saw ‘Dum Laga ke Haisha’, I saw how heavy she was in the film but over and above she did such a good job. She gained weight for what she loved and yes that inspired me. I did the same because I love what I was going to do in ‘Fanney Khan’,” Pihu said in a statement.

Pihu plays Lata Sharma, a young girl who dreams of becoming a star performer while battling body shaming.

The film is set to release on August 3.
