Director Prakash Kovelamudi says that it was Anushka's decision who decided to put on weight for 'Inji Iduppazhagi'. "Once she heard the story, she said she would put on weight for the character. She did not mind at all. While initially we explored the option of prosthetics, she said NO and said it will look fake. She said she will put on weight and would not do any other movie in this period. It was a bold decision especially for an actress who is on top of her game to be willing to do it for a character. It was completely her decision," said the director. The film is all set to hit screens on 27th November.
