Mumbai, Dec 6 (IANS): Known for his roles in 'Miley Jab Hum Tum', 'Guddan Tumse Na Ho Payega', and others, actor Nishant Malkani opened up on the research and preparations he underwent for his role in the series 'Johri'.

Nishant opened up about his process of playing this controversial character. He said: "Since my character is based on a real-life personality, a lot of research has gone into preparing for my character in the show. I've done everything from watching videos multiple times to spending time with people who have known him."

The 'Pashmina-Dhaage Mohabbat Ke' actor added: "The biggest challenge I faced was gaining weight. I’ve always been a fitness freak and had a good physique. I had to stay away from the daily routine of fitness to gain weight and look like the character."
