Ganesh initially given 25 days for the sake of shooting and he took extra 20 days to mould himself for the role. I know the role is profound. I made all the efforts to appear as authentic as possible. He has to put on 3 kilos in 20 days. Just after completing my schedule for Geetha I started prepping up for my role in 99. I started growing beard, stopped doing exercises and ate everything I wanted. By the time I entered on sets I almost put on 4 kilos which indeed fits the role exactly we wanted. Now I am meticulously doing exercises to get into the shape for the movie Geetha, Ganesh smiles.
