JAKARTA: After playing Fatmawati '€” founding father Sukarno'€™s wife, actress Tika Bravani is preparing to play a boxer in a new movie.

Tika says that she has to workout to turn her slender body into muscle.

'€œI need to get into a beefier shape for the part and also to help me get into character,'€ the 24-year-old told kompas.com in Jakarta.

Tika, who won the 2010 Festival Film Indonesia (FFI) award for Best Actress, has been working out since she was chosen for the part in June.

'€œThis is the kind of part that I want to get so I don'€™t get typecast into a certain character,'€ said the actress, who did not reveal more details about the new movie.
