Mumbai: Ever since Sara Khan and Nishant Malkani landed lead roles in Zee TV’s ‘Ram Milaayi Jodi’, the makers of the show are in a soup.

Buzz has it that Sara Khan, who plays a Punjabi girl, is too thin for her role and Nishant Malkani, who plays a shy Gujrati boy, is too brawny for his role.

Apparently, Rajita Sharma, the producer of the show has asked Sara to look a little more hatti-katti and dig in on some extra carbs, while Nishant has been asked to give up on his protein-high carbs diet to sport a leaner look.

When contacted, Sara confirmed the news and said, “The idea is to get us to look like an ideal couple for the big night and both Nishant and I are game for whatever it takes to make the scene look absolutely perfect!”

‘Ram Milaayi Jodi’ airs every Monday to Thursday at 9:30 PM on Zee TV.
