Pyaar Ka Punchnama actress Sonnalli Seygall was asked to go under the knife for role

Actress Sonnalli Seygall, who is known for her roles in "Pyaar Ka Punchnama" films, says she had to lose a "great work opportunity" as she was not willing to go under the knife as suggested by the casting director. She had recently given an audition for a "fantastic role" when a "well-known casting director" asked her to make some "changes on my body, unnaturally".

"I was very excited for this audition and prepared myself really well because I wanted to bag it and I did. But on meeting the director there, I was asked to make some changes on my body, unnaturally," Sonnalli said in a statement. "It was a no brainer for me to say no, even though my heart broke. But I would never put my body under the knife," she added.

She refused to name the director as his "vision did not work" for her. "I wouldn't deny that when I had entered the industry long time ago, I had faced similar problems... that I was too skinny. I wouldn't deny that it did cross my mind then to go through unnatural procedures to enhance certain features. 

"But I am glad that I didn't go ahead with it, instead I worked really hard on my body and ate well."
