The  diva  of dramatic acting Shabana  Azmi is looking five years younger these days. She has lost more than 10 kilos specially for Karan Johar’s  Rocky Aur Rani Ki Prem Kahani  where she plays Alia Bhatt’s grandmother.

Karan Johar who directs Shabana for the  first time wanted a svelte slim and sexy grandmom.

Shabana Azmi, known to be a method actor  anytime anywhere,  accepted the challenge and  lost the  extra kilos  within weeks.Interestingly she had  to put  ten kilos  for Shyam Benegal’s Mandi in 1983 and quickly lose it all for her other  films.

“Losing and gaining weight  for your characters  is not something I recommend, specially after a  certain age.  But here in Karan’s film, I needed an  excuse to lose weight,” says  Shabana.

Speaking on her  role in Karan’s film Shabana says, “It is  not a routine grandmother’s role. My character is a very sophisticated upperclass women. Manish Malhotra has designed  some  exquisite  clothes for me.”

The  5 times National-award winning actress is all praise  for her director. “Karan is so evolved as  a filmmaker. I  was surprised by how  much control he has over his  plot and  characters.”
