New Delhi: Actress Anjali Anand, who is all set to make her television debut with upcoming show Dhhai Kilo Prem, 'refused to put on more weight' for her role, reports news agency IANS. "I have lived a very active life all this while. Being someone who loves to trek and cycle to maintain a steady weight, gaining too much weight is a big no-no. I am at 108 kg for the role and any more change might get difficult to reverse," IANS quoted Anjali's statement. Anjali plays the role of an 'oversized' girl in Dhhai Kilo Prem, also featuring Meherzan Mazda, who gained 16 kg weight for his role. The plot of the serial revolves around the love story of Deepika (Anjali) and Piyush (Meherzan).
