In a previous tweet, the actor also mentioned how the weight gain and loss had negatively impacted her health and given her a bad back. Citing this as the reason why she would never go through such drastic measure for a role again. The film is expected to release on 23 April, 2021 and we can't wait to watch what she has in store.
