During the time of the shoot, the actors have to work patiently to maintain their bodies which they have curated to play the role of the character they have been assigned. But sometimes, these changes cannot be avoided and in that case, either the movie is shut down or the actor plays the role how so ever. One such condition is pregnancy, where it is impossible to abstain from the changes in the body. Yet there are actresses that, despite being pregnant had played their best role during that time. And with the efforts of the directors, did not even let the viewers since the pregnancy.

Movies have always been a source of entertainment and amazing fascination. The way actors play their roles makes us get involved in the movie like we are a part of it. This brings out the actor in us and makes us wish if we could be actors too. But making a movie is far more complex than what it looks like. It gets stretched on duration if shoot dies to the demands of the sets and scenes to be shot. The actors, of course, play a very important role.
