Sesh was asked to gain weight for the film. “Im really looking forward to start shooting for the film. Its being made on such a grand scale that it will undoubtedly be India’s answer to the Lord of the Rings franchise. Ill start shooting from Sept 29th and I have been asked to keep aside 60 days from my calendar” he said. Speaking of the weight parameters for the role, he said – “I have been asked to gain some weight and also learn sword fighting, horseriding and some basic action skills before I join the crew. Its going to be a great experience.” With the likes of Prabhas, Rana and Anushka in the film, Sesh will have plenty of opportunity to prove his mettle on screen this time. His another directorial romantic comedy, KISS, is all set to release this Friday. Speaking of the film, he said “It’s a story about two strangers from San Francisco coming together. The entire story transpires in 24 hours and that’s something the audience can look forward. The film’s major portion shot in the US will serve as its USP” he said.
